Throughout the month of November, (November 1st-November 28th),  site sponsors Franz Family Bakery (which owns the bakery in Spenard) will accept nominations for 50 families in need to receive $500 along with Franz food products, including a year supply of Franz bread. Tell Franz about the well-deserving people, families or organizations at If your nominee is selected, you will also receive a one-year supply of Franz bread!

And, even if you choose not to nominate, one reader who just comments on this post about their favorite holiday treat before November 15, will win a free gift bag from Franz just for visiting my site. Go forth and comment!
