Caring Causes: Pork Rind Appreciation Day/GGAF

Rudolph Foods, the world’s largest manufacturers of pork rinds, has announced its Second Annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day campaign. This year, Rudolph Foods will support Gridiron Greats, a nonprofit organization that provides medical and financial assistance to former National Football League (NFL) players in need. GGAF provides hands-on assistance to help retired players and their families deal with hardships they face after football. The services include medical assistance, transportation costs for medical evaluations and surgeries, housing assistance, financial assistance for utilities, medication, and coordination of services for food, automotive payments and childcare. 

Now through the big game, $.10 of the purchase of all Rudolph Foods branded products will support the organization’s assistance fund (up to $10,000). The campaign is also matched with several opportunities for consumers to play along for chances to win football parties, pork rinds and other prizes. As part of the 2nd annual campaign, Rudolph Foods is further encouraging lovers of pork rinds to help make the six month campaign a success by visiting the brand's web site. There, fans can watch videos from football hall of famers, join in on virtual Twitter chats using #PorkRindDay to discuss former players, submit support to Gridiron Greats, learn about the organization and even enter to win a Big Game party, complete with sandwiches, pork rinds, a new 50” Plasma TV and of course a personalized video from a Gridiron Greats football legend. Most importantly, consumers can support Gridiron Greats by buying pork rinds online.
Last year, Rudolph Foods announced their first campaign for Pork Rind Appreciation Day, as a quest to help Rudolph Foods’ consumers celebrate pork rinds as a quirky and nostalgic snack that encourages family togetherness and tradition. The campaign generated hundreds of thousands of votes nationwide, and donated $10,000 to the Wounded Warriors Family Support organization, supporting veterans returning home from the war and their families.
