AAM #Autism #Giveaway Lindt Chocolate Bunnies

Lindt will again support the non-profit through donations from sales of the iconic Lindt Gold Bunny.  Additional funds for Autism Speaks will be raised through the second annual LindtGold Bunny Celebrity AuctionLindt Easter e-cards, and a new Lindt Facebook initiative.

I am pleased to be highlighting a fabulous partnership between Autism Speaks and Lindt premium Swiss chocolatier with a review and giveaway of a Lindt Gold Kissing Bunnies Gift Set
Now through Easter, April 24, 2011, Lindt will donate 10 cents to Autism Speaks for every Lindt Gold Bunny purchased in the United States, up to $100,000.  Lindt Gold Bunny, the #1 selling chocolate bunny in the United States, is available in five sizes and three chocolate varieties: milk, dark and white chocolate.  It is a premium addition to any Easter basket, and a perfect way for people to celebrate spring and help give back at the same time.

Porcelain Lindt Gold Bunny figurines, autographed by top celebrities, will be auctioned off this spring when Lindt hosts the second annual Lindt Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction, with all proceeds going directly to Autism Speaks.  In addition, consumers can support the cause by sending free Lindt e-cards to family and friends for Easter, or by “like”-ing Lindt on Facebook.  Available at LindtGoldBunny.comLindt will donate $1 to Autism Speaks for every e-card sent, up to $5,000, and for every new Lindt Facebook“like,” Lindt will also donate $1 to Autism Speaks, up to an additional $5,000.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Autism Speaks for a third year to help support a cause that affects so many,” said Thomas Linemayr, chief executive officer and president of Lindt USA.  “First introduced more than 60 years ago, Lindt Gold Bunny is now a beloved icon of the Easter season and we’re very happy it is also the bunny that gives back.”

As an extension of the partnership, Lindt continues to honor champions for the cause through the third annual Lindt Unsung Heroes of Autism program.  The program rewards three individuals who are making a difference for those affected by autism in their family, home or community.

My review:  Being allergic to chocolate, I have to rely on Robyn as my product tester in this case... and all she had to say on the subject was 'So yummy'   I love the packaging that it comes in - so great for Spring, Easter and anytime really!  The Lindt Gold Kissing Bunnies Gift Set makes the perfect gift for everyone, especially those who appreciate just how good Lindt chocolate can be.
