Operation No Kid Hungry


I guess everyone knows that I have a bit of a soft spot for kids and not just my own. It actually pains me to think of any child going hungry, EVER. I have found an organization that is trying to eradicate Childhood Hunger. So when they contacted me yesterday and asked me to help get their message out I jumped at the chance. I have been fortunate enough to support them at other times but when I heard that AT&T was doing this in conjunction with them I couldn't wait to be involved!

By having food blogs we have so much power to help get information out and in the public eye so please repost this if you can...

Share Our Strength has launched a brand new campaign to raise funds to help end childhood hunger. "Operation No Kid Hungry" responds to President-elect Obama's call to action to end childhood hunger by 2015.

Share Our Strength has partnered with AT&T to offer two great ways that you can support and participate in "Operation No Kid Hungry":

1.Donate by text: Text "SHARE" to 20222 on your mobile device to donate $5. AT&T will match all text donations up to $100,000. Help us meet this challenge grant! Find out more at http://strength.org/get_involved/text_donation/

2.Hold a food drive: Beginning January 19th, a national day of community service, help feed those in need by holding your own community food drive.
Visit http://Strength.org to find a food bank and a list of the most needed nutritious foods.

For more information about "Operation No Kid Hungry" and how you can help end childhood hunger, visit Share Our Strength's website: http://strength.org.


There are also more ways you can help get the word out, including banners for your blog and social networking pages here: http://strength.org/get_involved/spread_the_word/

Let's do our part to help this very worth while cause!!!

As Always...
