Cadbury – The Bicycle Factory

We are a family of chocolate lovers – but Cadbury is one of our favourites! Even though I’m working on losing some weight, when I want to have a treat I often find myself gravitating towards Cadbury chocolate, though I have to fight everyone else in the family off to eat it!

Cadbury has also a great contest and program running to help provide bicycles to people in Africa right now!

According to their press release, “In Africa, a bicycle can change a person’s life and a community’s future. A bicycle can mean access to essential services such as clean water, medical care and education. It’s an invaluable vehicle that opens up a world of possibilities.

For the second year, The Bicycle Factory™ is in operation and is close to its goal of virtually building 5,000 bicycles for school children in Africa. There are only 1,000 bicycles to go, and we need your help!

The Bicycle Factory™ is open 24 hours a day at To help, simply enter the UPC code of any Cadbury product including Caramilk*, Dairy Milk*¸ Maynards*, Dentyne*, Stride*, Trident* and Halls* and watch it magically transform into a virtual bicycle part that will help build a new bicycle for a child in Africa. Each UPC code is equal to one bicycle part, and 100 UPC codes equal a bicycle. With your help, Cadbury will send 5,000 bicycles to Ghana, Africa. Hurry, the factory closes on November 14, 2010.”

I’ve been participating because it is a great way to help others while enjoying something yourself. It’s a true win/win situation!
