Martha Stewart

Recommended Posts

I got this from Delphi. I'm copying and pasting the persons post (as I didn't actually see the show)

Today on Martha Stewart, she had seven employees that had entered a contest for the next big idea for the future of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. One of the employees cannot eat gluten and has suggested a magazine for people with allergies and celiac disease. Martha couldn't decide which idea to pick, so everyone can vote online to choose the next big idea. Please vote - the link is below, and you can read the ideas, then scroll to the bottom for the vote. The magazine idea for people with allergies is not getting many votes - you have until February 7th!

I just voted, and yes, we may only have 17%, but that 17% is tied for 2nd place, which may serve as a wake-up call that this really is an issue and a market niche worth exploring. :)

It says you can vote once per day. If someone could remember to post to this thread to jog our memories, that would be great! I'm afraid my brain would forget.

I voted once, then changed clothes and voted again. Do you think they will recognize me? :ph34r:

I also posted this over to the celiacforums board. The more votes we can get the better. If anyone can bring gluten-free into the mainstream, the mighty and powerful Martha can do it.

I was soo dissapointed the other day when they said she was going to do "allergy free cupcakes" on her show and they were egg, dairy and nut free but chock full of gluten! I watched the whole show in anticipation of that :(
