Hunter Hayes Helping to Stop Child Hunger #childhunger

hunter-hayes

I am being compensated as an ambassador for the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign but as always all thoughts and opinions are my own.

More than 1 in 5 children in the United Sates, may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly sixteen million children. It’s hard to believe about children in this country but it’s true. I know we always think it’s happening in other parts of the world and not here in the U.S. but it is.

ConAgra Foods is partnering with P&G to build a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. Since March and through August 2014,  ConAgra Foods or P&G, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America when you enter the 8-digit code found on specially marked ConAgra and P&G products. All you have to do is look for the red pushpin on specially marked packages and enter the the code at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com or you can go over to my sidebar and enter the code right there in the box.

Child Hunger Ends Here is proud to work with Grammy-nominated country music artist Hunter Hayes and be the presenting sponsor of his “We’re Not Invisible” tour. For every download of Hunter’s new single, “Invisible,” on iTunes, Child Hunger Ends Here will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to the nation’s leading hunger-relief charity, Feeding America, up to 1 million meals.

Through April 24th, simply enter a code on www.childhungerendshere.com for the chance to “Ask Hunter”  a question.

So be thinking about what question you’d like to “ask Hunter”. Think you might need a little help? Child Hunger Ends Here will share some suggestions for great questions. Think about what you’d want to know from Hunter about maybe being a role model. Or what the best thing about being a role model is or perhaps what the hardest part of being a role model is? Maybe you’d like to know how Hunter hopes to leave a mark on the world? I’m sure you can come up with something.

The rules are pretty simple:  You must be 14 or older and only one prize/question per user. Please review the Privacy Policy at http://www.conagrafoods.com/privacy-policy

Please take a moment to fill out this quick reader survey to help ConAgra Foods and the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign gauge awareness.

I know you want to help those 16 million children so go find those specially marked products and take just a couple of minutes to come back and enter the code. I’ll keep the code box right there on the sidebar for you.

Look Good Feel Better Celebrates 25 Years #ReimagineBeauty

LGFB_25_ANNIVERSARY_LOGO (1)

I participated in this program on behalf of Look Good Feel Better and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

LGFB_25_ANNIVERSARY_LOGO (1)

Cancer has touched so many lives, it’s hard to even find one person who’s life hasn’t been affected by cancer in one way or another. Personally I’ve know those who have won the battle, those who lost their fight and those who are fighting right now.

One thing I have seen in all these instances is courage and strength and a beauty beyond the physical. A beauty so radiant words can’t define it. It’s amazing!

Cancer treatment has a way of robbing those we love of their self-esteem, confidence and strength we know they have.  One of the hardest aspects of dealing with cancer for my mom was losing her hair. One of my most vivid memories of that time was hearing my mom talk about losing her hair. And watching her cry tears at the thought of that. To this day, it makes me cry remembering it. Right there in that moment, it took her confidence away.  It shook her to the core. Something physical yes but something even more emotional. This is my beautiful mom!
60And yes, I am so very happy to be able to tell you that she got her confidence back, her strength from within and even more from her faith and love in God. And she fought this twice and won! I pray and hope for my friends and those of you who may be going through this with someone you love to regain and keep that confidence to beat this.

That’s why Look Good Feel Better is encouraging people to #ReimagineBeauty and celebrating their 25th anniversary with a sweepstakes and why I chose to share it with you.

Look Good Feel Better is a non-medical, brand-neutral and free public service program dedicated to helping women living with cancer manage the appearance side effects of cancer treatment and improve their self-esteem.

  1. Visit the Look Good Feel Better website and try the Virtual Makeover tool.
  2. Use the Virtual Makeover tool! Upload your photo and try the new hair and makeup looks. By doing so you’ll, in a small way, experience the help women living with cancer receive during a Look Good Feel Better workshop.
  3. Share the “after” photo from the Virtual Makeover tool on Facebook or Twitter, using the hashtag #ReimagineBeauty. By doing so, you’ll be helping to spread awareness and be entered for a chance to win a trip to the National Women’s Survivors Convention in Nashville to participate in the Look Good Feel Better 25th anniversary party.  The prize can be transferred to a friend or family member who is a cancer survivor.

You must get your entry in by July 1st though so don’t wait! Here is my makeover look:
