AUSTIN, Texas — Whole Foods Market and Sambazon, a supplier of superfood products, began Monday a Win a Trip to Brazil sweepstakes on Whole Foods Market's Facebook page.
For each entry received, Sambazon will donate $1 to Whole Planet Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to funding microlending programs in developing countries.
The winner will receive a week-long vacation for two to Brazil, where they may visit the beaches of Rio de Janeiro and explore the Amazon rainforest. The grand prize trip features a unique opportunity to visit Sambazon's production facilities and meet the family farmers who grow the certified organic and fair trade acai used in the company's Amazon superfood products.
The contest will run from June 20 through July 20, and coincides with a two-week, in-store promotion in which Sambazon will give 5 cents for every Sambazon juice sold to Whole Planet Foundation. Combined, Sambazon has pledged to donate up to $25,000 by the end of July.
