Thank you Cabot Cheese!

A while back I entered a giveaway for Cabot Cheese for volunteering.  I didn't give it much thought, because I rarely win things from companies these days, so I entered and pretty much forgot I did..

Until a package showed up on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago.
disclosure, they gave me the cheese, but asked for nothing in return.. did I mention I got no notice I won save for it showing up on my doorstep?

In the box were six other boxes..

and in each of these boxes, was a box..

And inside that box...

so 600 units of cheese!!  Talk about overwhelming!!

talk about your boxes..

You thank us Cabot, we thank you for these boxes we are about to enjoy.. 
I donated five of the boxes to the shelter.  I told them I would like to use it for the Kitten Shower that is coming up next month.  Unfortunately they don't seem feel the need to use the donation as intended.  Last I heard they were seeing if it was feasible to use it to give medications to the dogs.. (The dogs! *sigh*  not that I hate dogs, I just really feel the cats are under supported and that is where I intend my donations to go)   There was also the thought that since they are all individually wrapped there is the belief that wrappers would end up on the grounds (aka people wouldn't dispose of them properly) so instead of using my donation as is, there is intention to unwrap them and put them on a platter.. *sigh*  I guess I will have to re-evaluate my donations in the future.

I'm glad I saved one box out and gave it to another organization who was THRILLED to have it.. and near the end of the day all but a handful were left.. Considering there were less than 100 volunteers and there was fruit and chips and pizza and chocolate up the wazoo, I would say the cheese was VERY appreciated.  Not everyone wants high sugar snacks..

So thank you Cabot for doing this!  I totally appreciate the donation and the chance to help..

and I thank you for this box.. 


  1. Oh! I would have been MORE than happy to take that cheese off your hands! I love cheese, although I tend to prefer shaved parmesan. Yum!

  2. You win EVERYTHING! Must be the good karma in giving your winnings away. I would have snacked the heck out of that cheese.

  3. Free cheese and a box for the kitties? You made out quite well. :)

  4. Wow, what a prize! That was nice of you to donate the cheese to organizations--though I hope you saved a sample for yourself. ;-)

  5. hope you tried some too!congrats on the win!

  6. Connie, I was about to write saying you deserve that win for all you do...and then I read you even donated your winnings. What a generous, compassionate person you are. I've learned you can't expect others to do what you feel is best with a donation; therefore I set things up myself -- like slicing the cheese so it's enjoyed by the volunteers...and so someone doesn't put the whole block on their plate. Isn't it nice to receive a surprise without notice? I'm waiting for the $1,000,000 check, unannounced.

  7. mom says: mmmmm - cheese

    we says: YEAH boxes!!!!

    and congrats on the WELL deserved (if unappreciated by others) prize

  8. We think some kitty (not mentioning any names here) would have liked to have all those boxes. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  9. Congratulations on the win! And cool box for the kitties!
    Cabots makes THE best extra sharp cheddar!

  10. Congratulations on your win! And the kitties won big time with those great boxes!

  11. Concats! And the boxes themselves must have been appreciated too ;-)

  12. Thanks for all the great work you do!
    Wendy / Cabot
