What are you planning for the family this summer? A vacation? A trip to see relatives? A camp? Sports practice? A birthday party?
Whatever you’re planning, you’ll make sure your loved ones are cared for and well fed. They’re so lucky!
The truth is there are so many kids in the USA who are hungry, especially hungry in the summer, because there’s no school lunch, and no place for them to go get a meal.
You can make a difference has become a cliché, overused, and somewhat meaningless, but it certainly applies here.
Let me bring this home to you.
Kids are not out asking for donations on the street…think about it…they’re not visible. They’re in a home, or on the street without enough food to make them feel comfortable or help them grow.
I heard about an organization trying to solve this invisible hungry child problem in America, and our family made the conscious choice to get involved.
~The Share Our Strength Mission Statement~
The Share Our Strength goal is to end childhood hunger in America. Working with others, we believe we can do this by 2015. Share Our Strength’s highest priority is to make sure that every child in America gets the nutritious food he or she needs to learn, grow and thrive.
All donations help end child hunger in the United States and are tax-deductible. Share Our Strength is a non-profit and uses donations to help provide nutritious meals to children. Donate today and provide a hungry child his next meal. Your charitable donation will help end childhood hunger by 2015.”
Whatever you do with and for your family this summer, remember to feel joyous and grateful that it’s not your family who is hungry, and give something to those who are.
Anything you can give to Share Our Strength will help.
Every single dollar you donate will provide a kid with 10 meals. That’s how far the money goes.
Really make a difference for your family. Get your kids involved. Help them connect to others. Show them how they can help feed hungry kids, too.
Pass this along to your friends and other family members.
We can all help. Make any donation you can.
