This week, I’m pleased to be bringing you yet another giveaway to help raise awareness (and money) for the upcoming election on Prop 37 in California.
As I wrote last week, I’m not a California resident. But I do strongly support California’s Prop 37. Why do I care about a California law? Because if it passes in the popular election this November 6th, it will be the first law of its kind in this country. It will set the stage for other states passing similar laws. And ultimately, it will cripple GMO behemoths like Monsanto!
What’s Prop 37? It’s a labeling law. It will require that all foods sold in California that contain GMOs be labeled as such.
Did you know 94% of the soybeans and 88% of the corn grown in the U.S. is genetically-modified? That corn, corn derivatives, and soybeans are in more than 75% of the food sold at the supermarket?
Translation: most consumers regularly and unwittingly eat foods containing GMOs.
Why should you care about Prop 37?
Even if you aren’t a California resident (and I am not), you have a lot to win if Prop 37 passes. Food manufacturers will be forced to label GM-containing foods if they want to sell in California. The consequences of this will rock the nation.
These food makers will either opt to stop selling in CA (unlikely, but possible for some of the smaller companies), or will change their labels. If they update their labels to reflect GM-ingredients, they will face two choices. The more expensive one will be to have a CA label outlining GMOs and a non-CA label for the rest of the country. The more economical option will be to have a single, nationwide label admitting to the presence of GMOs. Hence the saying, “As goes California, so goes the nation.”
What can you do?
First, you can join me in helping to raise awareness of the campaign to get Prop 37 passed. Enter this giveaway! Share it with your friends and family.
Second, you can join the multitude of smaller natural and organic food companies fighting to get Prop 37 passed by donating to the campaign.
Monsanto and other Big Food corporations have raised more than $32 Million to campaign against Prop 37!
Want to know how much the grassroots Yes on Prop 37 campaign has raised? About $4 Million. Most of those funds are coming from smaller natural and organic food companies like Ayala’s Herbal Water.
What will you win?
This week, there will be not one, but TWO lucky winners!
One reader will win the Ultimate Herbal Water gift set, worth $125. You’ll get variety cases of every flavor of herbal water Ayala’s makes, in both sparkling and still options. Check out these tantalizing flavors:

I absolutely support Prop 37. Everyone has a right to know what type of food they are putting in their own, and their families bodies. People really have no idea what companies are poisoning us with. We just watch their commercials, take their word, and chow down. This is not safe for the future of our world. America seems to have truly taught the masses not to ask questions.
Hopefully, Prop 37 is a go. My reasoning behind this is that most of my family is allergic to commercial food products. I, myself, am allergic to whatever the heck they pump into chickens prior to them producing eggs. Because of this, there have been times when the food labels didn’t properly reflect something and one of our children got severely sick because of it. If the food labels were forced to change, then we wouldn’t have these mishaps on an almost weekly basis.
I don’t live in CA but I am watching closely! The vast majority of us want to know what’s in our food, but corporate advertising is muddying the water. I hope if it passes, we’ll get more info in other states too as a result. And I hope MA is next!
I support Prop 37 because I am scared of GMOs!
We, unquestionably, have the right to know what is in our foods. By doing so, those of us that care about what’s going into our bodies can make educated choices!! I pray Prop 37 passes!
If only I lived in Cali I would def be voting for prop 37!! It’s so scary to me that the government could hide what they are doing to our food and makes it all feel so overwelmed at the thought of growing and raising more of our own food…
I believe that we have the right to know what is in our food!!
So funny! I JUST tried out this water at Whole Foods last week! And I loved it. The flavor was light but present. I tried the lavender mint and the lemon ginger.
I’m defnitely anti-GMO its just so unnatural!
Rhonda S. Phillips-Tenderholt says
I am voting YES on prop 37 here in CA.
Yes to Prop 37! Wished I lived in CA so I could vote YES! Spreading the word to everyone who will listen!
Judy M says
I support Prop 37 because I feel we have a right to know what is in our food!! I fear what will happen to future generations if this does not pass.
Judith Marvaldi says
I totally support Prop 37. We have a right to know what we are eating and the corporations should not be the ones deciding what goes into our bodies to the benefit if their pockets! I used to live in California and wish I still did for reasons such as this! So, why is Florida not eligible to enter? I wouldn’t be surprised at the answer with such a backward mentality of the state. Go Prop 37!!!!
my family along with public did not sign up for/consent to this experiment called GMOs!
Laura C. says
I strongly support GMO labeling as I think it is important to know what we are consuming. We need to become more informed consumers and demand that manufacturers clearly label what’s in our food!! Thanks for the chance!
R. E. Maley says
I find it hard to believe that those so vehemently opposed to GM foods still eat meat, when the animals made for consumption in America are nearly unrecognizable as the animals they claim to be. It seems rather self-contradictory.
Not all the animals, only those raised within the industrial food chain. Most of this blog’s readers opt out of that system, instead preferring to eat meat, dairy, and eggs from animals raised on pasture or in the wild.
I am a subscriber already. No GMO’s.
My family already donated to prop 37. It is necessary to know what is in my food so that I can properly feed my family.
Tara McGinnis says
I support Prop 37 because I want to know EXACTLY what I am paying good money for and I do not want to support the GMO suppliers by buying their products
Naomi Snider says
I support Prop 37 because I want to know what I’m eating.
Nancy K says
I live in California, and you bet I support prop. 37 everyone has a right to know what is in the food they are buying!
I support Prop 37 because I think we should all know what is in our food. I am not cool with GMOs and I would like to know which foods use them. Even if someone is ok with it, the only way it becomes your choice is if you know what ingredients are truly in your food. And this should be the consumers’ choice.
Talia B. says
The general public needs to see how common the GMO foods are. Maybe more people will realize connections between these foods and allergies and such. Whatever it takes to get rid of GMO. Prop 37 NEEDS to pass!!!
GMOs are dangerous and mess with nature. They don’t belong in our food!
Jen S. says
I support Prop. 37 because I know about the dangers of GMO’s and it’s everyone’s right to know if they are eating food that could genetically damage their future generations of children.
We have the right to choose what to put in our bodies!!
My family and I care about what we eat! While I don’t live in CA, know that those voting YES to prop 37 are speaking for me and so many more!
I live in California and i voted FOR prop 37 already. I beleive we have a right to chose what we put in our bodies.
