I have been invited by The Motherhood to share the following information about the Vote2FightHunger campaign as part of a sponsored campaign. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. You’ve no doubt read my other posts about food insecurity and child hunger in the past so you know this is something I find very important. With 49 million Americans living with food insecurity you can only image how much in need food banks are for donations. So this month Walmart is launching the “Fight Hunger, Spark Change.” campaign. They have committed to providing $3.7 million in grants to Feeding America and other food banks and local agencies. And they aren’t alone, acclaimed chef, cookbook author and TV host, G. Garvin has teamed up with Walmart on this very important campaign. The 50 winning food banks will each receive a $60,000 grant. That’s going to help a lot of people.
You get to help decide where those donations go! Simply by casting your vote once a day for a participating Feeding America food banks.
I just clicked over to www.walmart.com/fightinghunger entered my home state TX and saw the list of participating food banks. I am originally from The Rio Grande Valley and I have seen first hand so many families in need there so I took the few seconds it took to cast my vote. You can do this once a day from September 15th through October 5, so you still have some time to make your mark. You can spare less than a minute of your day to help food banks can’t you? I know you can. You’re awesome like that!
Want to do more than just vote? You can! You’ll also find information on how you can donate or volunteer to take a direct action in the fight against hunger in your local community at www.walmart.com/fighthunger.
Before you head off, I wanted to extend a personal invitation to you to come join me on Twitter on Sept. 30th at 1 pm EST following and using the hashtag #vote2fighthunger and together let’s let the world know how they can spark change and help join the fight against hunger. Just an added incentive for you, there will be prizes to be won as well so please consider stopping by.
