The title reads weird, but trust me, Coke made it seem even worse.
So in the wake of Slim Jim and Moon Pie, Coke is giving away 100,000 Coca-cola cans to “American troops and their families.” All you have to do is click the link and you’ll tick another can onto the slowly-growing total.
This is obviously an awesome goal, otherwise I wouldn’t be posting it, but I’m always left wondering how promos like these actually work. What families will get the free coke? How many cans will each family get? I wish there was a little more info.
You know those MyCokeReward codes that are under the plastic caps or printed on the inside of a cardboard 12-pack box? Now through July 31, you can enter a single code and trigger a free soccer ball donation to a school of your choice. The kids would probably rather have the coke, which is why they need the soccer ball! In my day,

The Holly Rod Foundation helps provide technology to those affected by Autism and now though June 30, you can make a free $1 donation (up to $25,000) via AT&T and Facebook. Donations are made by liking them on Facebook or tweeting with the hashtag #ATTSpeakHope.
I’ve seen the firsthand positive affects technology can have with autistic children, so I couldn’t be more on board with what this foundation is trying to achieve!

9Lives cat food wants to donate up to one million meals to animal shelters and all we have to do is watch a funny video. They’re only at 15,000 donations right now, which baffles me. The Internet loves cat videos, especially funny ones, and we love freebies. I imagine we can get them up to a million in around 41 minutes.
Make sure to stick around after the video and enter the code shown to make your view count.

If you have a dummy Facebook account (come on, please tell me you do…) or don’t mind linking apps to your personal account, you should consider donating $1 to AdoptAClassroom.org for free thanks to 3M. From what I gather, 3M wants to donate $25,000 and so far they’re only at $656. That needs a few more zeros.
Click the yellow “Share A Note” button to like Post-it and share a story about how you use Post-Its to “inspire, encourage, and touch the ones you love.” I hope they like my true story of “one time I spilled cereal and used Post-Its to kindly show my brothers all the pieces they needed to pick up.”
I’m starting to understand why my parents finally got us a dog.
Land O’Lakes is currently running a promotion through May 1 where they will donate eight free meals to Feeding America in exchange for every recipe that is repinned from their Pinterest board. Now if only there was a way for them to cook me a meal as well in exchange for some pins. I think I had my 400th peanut butter and jelly sandwich of 2013 last night.

Every Facebook like will earn a free Sara Lee sandwich donation to a local food pantry that services those in need. You’ll also be able to print a $1 Sara Lee coupon, so you get to help somebody and save money. Does it get much better than that?

A while back I had the idea to create a site where I would post ways to donate to charities for free. But it recently dawned on me that it was a stupid idea. Not because of the subject, but because why would I start a separate freebie-esque site when I already have a huge one here? So starting today, I’m going to post the occasional free charity or donation offer on HIF.
Today’s offer is a free breakfast donation to a hungry child from Kellogg’s. They’ll donate one free meal, up to a million, for every share, tweet, pin, or video watch. Right now they’ve only reached 162,000 meals, so let’s make that number skyrocket.
If you’ve been itching for some free Schiff MegaRed Omega-3 krill oil, then you seriously have some oddly specific cravings. Are you sure you’re not pregnant?
This is available to the first 100,000 people to request it on Facebook. As a bonus, if all samples are request, Schiff will make a $100,000 donation to the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease.

If you’re a frequent customer of Starbucks, you might want to check out Google Offers today. They have a $10 Starbucks gift card for only $5. To make sweeten the pot, for every card sold Google will donate $3 to OFN for the Create Jobs for USA Fund, up to $3 million dollars. My napkin math says that’s a good deal. It also says hello and asks how your family has been lately.
I think I’ve already had too much coffee today.
