Be the Good…and Win

June 18, 2020

2020 has been challenging to say the very least. The pandemic, social unrest and political upheaval can send us right over the edge into the abyss.

I figure we can sit around, cowering in our masks or we can stand up, be strong and make the world a kinder, more compassionate place.

We see it every day on the news. People are finding ways to show love and empathy to others, often to people they don’t know and may never see again. We’ve seen the planet begin to heal as we are confined to our homes. We have seen acts of kindness that move us to tears as much as we have seen heartbreaking sadness and cruelty. Humans amaze me.

I thought we’d take the opportunity that life has presented and be the good we want to see.

Your job is easy. Tell me what has inspired you to do something kind for someone and then tag 2 friends to join our community of love and cooking (they have to be new to Christina Cooks). That’s it. Your name will be put in a drawing to win a very special prize.

Many of you have seen my beloved espresso cup collection. Each one is precious for the memory it holds for me. Each memory is based in love.

The prize for this contest will be this gorgeous espresso cup, bought for me by someone very close to my heart. It was our first trip to the city of Verona at a coffee shop that proclaimed it was the best coffee in Italy (it was pretty darn good). I’m willing to sacrifice this special cup to the person who inspires me the most. And its sweet memories will bring love to your house as well.

And I’ll even add a pound of espresso coffee for you to enjoy!

So come on, kids! Let’s inspire each other and be the good!
