Jennifer Garner Talks Turkey for Frigidaire to help Save the Children


Frigidaire Talk Turkey Round Table Save the Children Charity

Jennifer Garner swapped turkey tips with fellow moms/bloggers* in Los Angeles to launch Frigidaire’s new Range with Symmetry™ Double Ovens.

Last wednesday, I had the lovely privilege of joining Jennifer Garner, Suzanne Goin, and a select handful of super-powered Mom/Food Bloggers as we shared Thanksgiving traditions and recipe tips. This event was the launch of the new Frigidaire Gallery® Range with Symmetry™ Double Ovens that roasts two large turkeys at once. (plus it preheats in a mere 4 minutes, which I find jaw-droppingly-awesome) Check out Jennifer opening that drool-worthy oven below!  Can you imagine being able to do all your holiday roasting and baking at one time? And the great news is that  Frigidaire is donating $200 to Save the Children’s U.S. Programs for each new range purchased this holiday season. But WAIT, that’s not what this post is about! This post is about giving, not purchasing. The really really special news is that all you readers can help contribute to this charity, and enter the sweepstakes, all with the click of a button!

So watch the videos as often as possible, and please please share this post with your friends, via twitter, and on your facebook pages. Together we dan really make a difference in the lives of the 1 in 5 children suffering from hunger in the United States!

ps, have I mentioned how much I liked Jennifer Garner? She and I both share a Martha Stewart love, she’s kind to everyone, and she’s funny (major points!).  She is the real deal, if ever there was one.
