"What’s for lunch?" Jen questioned as she popped over my cube. Cora spun around and declared "Yeah! I’m hungry!" A few minutes later, we plopped down at Chili’s. I think it was the reminder of the scrumptious Chicken Crispers that sealed the deal.
While at lunch, our sever asked us if we wanted to make a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by coloring a Chili’s pepper. Darn right we do – bring on the crayons!
Working adults coloring at lunch aside, the Chili’s fundraiser is very cool. Sitting in the corner booth, it was easy to see that nearly every wall was plastered with colorful peppers. Add all those little peppers up and it’s a big DIFF.
Back at work, a little GOOG research helped me find CreateAPepper.com. I learned that Chili’s has a 10-year, $50 million commitment to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. They’ve even launched the Chili’s Care Center, which "houses the major treatment and research programs for brain tumor and bone marrow transplant patients." Awesome.
Throughout the month of September, you can go to any Chili’s and donate money to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by coloring a pepper. And on September 29, Chili’s will donate every penny of their profit to the hospital for the entire day. So stop by a neighborhood Chili’s if you can this month and do your little DIFF. And I mean really…those Crispers are delish and coloring is still super fun if you stay inside the lines.
