Introducing the Fine Sponsors of The Great Canadian Blog Bash! #TGCBB

It is the focus of The Great Canadian Blog Bash to not only get to know other fabulous Canadian bloggers, but to proudly show off our Canadian companies and encourage others to shop locally! Each year companies from coast to coast heed the call of the blog bash and we love that mutual support!

What’s a Party without the Presents??

These fabulous Canadian companies are sponsoring prizes that you will find up for grabs right here on June 27th, offered to you by The Great Canadian Blog Bash hosts!

Got an idea for a winning donut?? For the first time in Tim Hortons history, Canadians have the chance to create what could be the next donut to be added to Tim Hortons iconic menu! From now until July 21, 2013, Canadians have the opportunity to create a new donut flavour that could be chosen as one of eight finalists by Tim Hortons and celebrity guest judge, Jason Priestley. Once the final eight have been selected, it will be left up to Canadians to make the final winning decision by voting for the ultimate donut winner, who not only wins some (serious) bragging rights, but will also take home $10,000.
