💗 Hunger touches every community.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends, and got to enjoy some relaxation, laughter, and of course, delicious food. But as we all know, not everyone may be that fortunate.
Today is GivingTuesday.
Just as we did last year, we've decided to reallocate our full holiday card budget and donate it to Feeding America instead.
Their mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. This network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, and secures and distributes 4.3 billion meals each year through food pantries and meal programs throughout the United States. Due to the pandemic, 50 million people may face hunger in the U.S. — including more than 17 million children. Hunger knows no boundaries — it touches every community in the U.S., including your own.
My local food bank here in Monmouth County, NJ is Fulfill. Find a food bank near you:
Many people facing hunger are forced to make tough choices between buying food and medical bills, food and rent and/or food and transportation. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500.
We hope that you’ll consider joining us in donating to this incredibly important and worthy cause, if you can.
And specifically on GivingTuesday Nov 30, Meta/Facebook will match $8 million in qualifying donations.
Our fundraiser will run on Facebook now thru December 31, 2021.
If you can’t donate at this time, we hope that you’ll share this fundraiser on Facebook to help us reach a larger audience.
PS: Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit. Give today.
