There are tons of things in life that I absolutely love but to name a few… One – pizza. Two – guacamole. Three – anything involving carbs. Four – helping people in need. This post is about something that is really important to me and it involves 3 of the 4 things mentioned above! (no guacamole – sorry guys!) A few months ago I was approached to participate in a contest for Tyson Chicken and I needed to create an awesome dinner sandwich using their chicken that is simple to prepare and delicious!! What made this contest even more exciting was that, the winner of the Chicken Dinner Sandwich, would have $5,000 donated to the charity of their choice. This was really exciting to me because I am a huge believe in helping those in need and getting involved with charities!
After a few test runs in the kitchen I decided on the Tuscan Chicken Pesto Sandwich! It’s a winner – and I’ve made it with different combination numerous times in the past few months! The next decision was a bit more difficult. There are so many charities out there that need our help. Ultimately I chose The Painted Turtle which is an amazing organization that I have been fortunate to learn about through my bosses as they are supporters of this fantastic organization!
The Painted Turtle is the sixth addition to Paul Newman’s family of Hole in the Wall Camps for seriously ill children. It is also the only multi-disease camp and family care center of its kind on the West Coast. Through educational, therapeutic, safe, and just plain fun summer camp and year-round programs, The Painted Turtle provides a life-changing experience to children whose daily struggles often diminish both their desire to be well and their ability to lead a rich, productive life.
Of the more than one million children in California with chronic illnesses, The Painted Turtle needs assessment revealed that there are over 17,500 who are unable to attend summer camp due to their medical needs. The Painted Turtle provides these children and their families with an empowering, renewing experience completely free of charge.
So go check out my video and learn how to make a Tuscan Chicken Pizza Sandwich on Momversation and be sure to vote for the Tuscan Chicken Pizza Sandwich and help me win $5,000 for the Painted Turtle!!!
