If you purchase any 1-2-3 Gluten Free baking mixes from their online store from now through November 8th, they will donate $1 per item to those in need. There is no special promo code and no limit -- the more product you purchase, the more they are able to donate. This is a great time for you to stock up for the holidays while helping others.
