Kiva.org – the loans that change lives! The entrepreneurs of “8 de Septiembre Group” have paid back their loan in full! We are so excited for them and now we can loan out the repayment to other budding entrepreneurs in developing countries. We will keep you updated on our next micro-loan recipient.
Summer is coming and we need your help! We are looking for a special summer Pre-Mix and want you to tell us what would be in YOUR Perfect Summer Granola!
Here is how it works: Go to MixMyGranola.com and have a look at our delicious ingredients. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us which granola base and which ingredients you would want in your Perfect Summer Granola.
We will randomly pick one entry and are giving away a $25.00 MixMyGranola gift certificate to the winner! But the best thing is: We will post the summer granola creation on our Pre-Mix Page as the Perfect Summer Granola so other MixMyGranola fans can enjoy it too (of course with an acknowledgment of the granola creator!). Sweepstakes end this Friday, May 15th at 12pm EST and the winner will be announced on our MixMyGranola blog.
So get going and create your Perfect Summer Granola at MixMyGranola.com!

Ok, Ok- we have said it before: This month we are starting with a BANG, but May surprised us with the best start we ever had: MixMyGranola was featured on more than 50 (yes, fifty!) new website throughout the country! Oh Yes, we couldn’t believe it either, but local news websites from Atlanta, Charlotte, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco (just to name a few) featured us in their food sections and recommended us as their special Mother’s Day surprise! WOW!
Here is the CBS 5 Phoenix feature:
Well this one is different: We were quite flattered when the Visa Business Network asked us whether we would like to be their featured Business of the Month for the month of April 2009 and Matt didn’t hesitate to give a really cool interview!
Visa Business Network is a very cool Facebook Application that allows young start-up businesses to exchange information and get advice from other entrepreneurs. To read the full interview log into your facebook account and click here.
Oh yes we do love this cool site College Candy! And it seems that College Candy loves us too – so much that Abby from College Candy says she has fallen in love with our granola – so what you waitin’ for? Start your own love affair with our granola! 🙂
