I love to eat.
I love just about any type of food, and I especially love preparing food. So when I heard about the fact that nearly 1 in 4 children in America will face hunger this year, it tore my heart out. Here I am, enjoying these delicious ribs, and there are children going hungry.
Food feeds more than your stomach.
I know, that’s an obvious statement. But without food, kids don’t have the energy to learn. Your childhood years are what mold you into a functional member of society. Without the energy of food, you don’t have the energy to learn and survive. I can’t even imagine life without food – and as a kid, this has to be even more difficult.
Consider making a difference.
In fact, don’t just consider it – just do it right now. You can make a difference. I had heard about the Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry™ through Amanda Hite a few weeks ago at People Report’s Summer Camp. Head over there to check out this great cause and join me. Thanks to Dave Murr, I was reminded to get my rear in gear and prepare for tomorrow’s TweetOut.
Here’s a few things you can do to help:
1) Go to The TweetOut instruction page and make sure you start your list of local area restaurants that you enjoy. Get ready to talk to them tomorrow.
2) Make a $25 donation here. That’s what you’d spend on one night of a good grill out. Skip the grill out for leftovers and you can feed a child 3 meals a day for over a month.
3) Take the pledge and join over 42,500 people who are helping to fight childhood hunger.
4) Add the Twibbon to your avatar. Show your support.
5) Watch and share this video. It’s just under 7 minutes, and I promise it’ll give you the courage to take action if you were on the fence.
Get involved. These kids need our help.Tweet
