Once again (thanks to you!) we have been nominated as BEST WEBSITE & BEST BLOG in VegNews Annual Awards, but we can’t take home the prize without your gorgeous ass-ets voting (& asking your GirlieGirl Army friends to please do the same!) This is the shortest, sweetest little survey.. a pleasure to fill out.
Wontcha be a doll and vote for us?
We’d be forever grateful! You also have a chance to vote for all your favorite foods, products, restaurants, and non profits, so let your voice be heard.
Need an extra reason to vote? All submissions will be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing to win insanely dope (that word is due for a comeback) prizes including:
Grand Prize: VEGAN CARIBBEAN CRUISE
Get ready to embark on an all-expense paid vegan vacation of a lifetime. You and a lucky guest will set sail on a breathtaking Italian luxury liner for a weeklong cruise with Holistic Holiday at Sea. Nourish your mind, body, and spirit as you traverse the clear blue waters of the Caribbean, enjoying stops in Mexico, Honduras, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman. While on board, indulge in artfully prepared vegan cuisine, yoga, cooking classes, educational seminars, evening parties, and so much more. Bon voyage!
First Prize: VITAMIX BLENDER
Make silky-smooth soups, refreshing smoothies, and the perfect cashew-cheese sauce with a state-of-the-art Vitamix blender, a favorite of the VegNews staff. With a motor that packs some serious horsepower and blades spinning at upwards of 240 miles per hour, the Vitamix’s power and performance can’t be beat, and neither will the ice cream, bisques, and piña coladas you make with it. This industry-leading culinary contraption is a must-have in every vegan kitchen.
Second Prize: VEGAN ICE CREAM PARTY
Delivered to your doorstep, you’ll receive everything you need to host the ultimate vegan ice cream soirée. Included in your towering gift box will be a dozen pints of So Delicious ice cream, a smorgasbord of cones and sprinkles by Edward & Sons, a trio of toppings from Pure Sweets (think peanut butter, chocolate hazelnut, and chocolate shell), and oodles of HealthyTop whipped cream. We’ll also throw in a signed copy of Hannah Kaminsky’s
brand-new Vegan a la Mode cookbook, which is filled with amazing recipes for homemade ice cream.
Third Prize: $250 SHOPPING SPREE
If you love to shop for vegan shoes, handbags, and accessories, this incredible prize package has your name on it. One very lucky VegNews reader will be able to shop to his or her (vegan) heart’s content with a $250 shopping spree at one of our favorite vegan stores, Alternative Outfitters. AO is known for its super-stylish selection, carrying everything from belts to beauty care.
Plus, Weekly Giveaways! VEGAN CHOCOLATE FUDGE
Trust us, life is not complete until you’ve savored a piece of rich, buttery, vegan fudge from Allison’s Gourmet. Made with the finest organic ingredients, Allison’s luscious confection comes in flavors like chocolate orange, walnut, butterscotch pecan, and vanilla chai. (four winners)
