Cheeseboy’s Tomato and Basil. I’m in love.

Since they began in Boston in 2009, Cheeseboy has sold well over a million grilled cheese sandwiches.  That’s two million pieces of bread, countless sticks of butter, and a few million cheese slices.  And, with the opening of the Cheeseboy at the 95N service area in Darien (95S is on its way too), you have to believe those numbers will keep growing and growing.  With so much success, Cheeseboy thought long and hard about how to give back to all the fans of their grilled cheese sandwiches.  And, what they came up with very well might change your life:

We’re talking ’bout one of the gooiest contests to have ever existed!  The winner will get to pick a charity to receive $10,000 and will win a free grilled cheese sandwich, once a week, for life.  All you need to do is answer, “What would you do for a million grilled cheese sandwiches?”  The contest goes until August 31, 2013 and asks you to answer that question in 200 words or less.  All you need to do is head over to www.GrilledCheeseForLife.com then share your thoughts.  According to a recent press release, “Entries will be judged on their creativity in response, appropriateness, and viability of their charitable initiative.”

And, we’ve got something else great to share.  There are five runner ups for this contest too and they will receive a free grilled cheese sandwich once a month for a year.  Of course you’ll want to win a lifetime supply, but the consolations prize ain’t too shabby, now is it?

We wish you luck…and may the cheese be with you.

10,000 Acts of Kindness, 10,000 Free Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

16 Apr

Update:  Cheeseboy gave away nearly 40,000 free sandwiches and honored nearly 17,500 random acts of kindness throughout the Northeast during National Grilled Cheese Month.  They were only planning on giving away 1,000!  

We all probably remember where we were when the attacks of 9/11 happened, where we were when the shootings at Newtown happened, and where we were when we heard the news about the bombings at the Boston Marathon during Patriot’s Day.  While we never forget these moments and we won’t ever forget the people hurt and the friends we lost because of these senseless tragedies, we need to move ahead.  Like the runners, we need to keep racing towards the end, chugging ahead, helping those who fall down along the way.

In that kind of spirit of friendship, devotion, and helpfulness, Cheeseboy (based in Boston) is rewarding people who have done good.  They will be giving away free grilled cheese sandwiches to 10,000 individuals who demonstrate acts of kindness.  This is their way of helping those who give and sacrifice themselves for others.  Just stop by any of their locations (listed below) on Sunday, April 28 from 1-6 pm and get your free grilled cheese sandwich.

Again, we can’t help but think of some of the images of the Boston Marathon.  After the explosion, you’d expect people to run away, but people in uniform and everyday citizens came running in.  They searched for people and put their lives in danger to help out.  It’s important that in times like this that we see the good in each other and see how kindness can help get us through.

Take care everybody.
