I am sure we all come from different walks of life so I am telling you right now to think back to a time when you accidentally skipped a meal. Now remember how hungry you felt waiting till that next meal or till you could get to a place where you could get a snack. Now imagine yourself feeling that hungry EVERY SINGLE DAY!
My husband and I were just discussing the other day that if people would just take the time to help their very own communities how much better off our communities would be. You see the gift of giving goes beyond just that one person you are helping. It can ignite a spark and encourage that person to also pay it forward.
Did you know that 10 percent of U.S. children live in food insecure homes? That’s millions of children who don’t know when, or if, their next meal is coming. This is especially true during the summer months when school meal programs are no longer in effect. This is not okay. Not in a country where so many have so much –and are willing to share it.
I am very excited to tell you that I have teamed up with Champion For kids for the Summer of Giving Challenge. Champions for kids has a goal to provide 5 million meals to hungry kids this Summer and you can help by visiting the frozen food aisle in your local Walmart Super Center from now till July 1st to learn more about how you can help by doing your own SIMPLE Service food donation project .You could even win one of three $25,000 awards for your school just by entering your own food drive project. Simple Service Projects are just that, simple projects that you and your family can do together to help out someone in need.
Chamipons for kids says “SIMPLE Service projects are SIMPLE ideas that people can do to provide assistance to children in their communities. In partnership with our corporate partners, we bring people SIMPLE ideas they can do to bring children light and hope. Check back each month to learn about new SIMPLE Service projects and how you can become a Champion for Kids.”
Another easy way to help Champinons for Kids is to go to your local Walmart and shop for the following brands participating in this project: Tyson, Birds Eye, and State Fair products. By purchasing these products that you already love you are helping to feed hungry children. Just keep an eye out for the shelf tag below! You can also look for the two page spread in Family Circle magazine! I was given a $100 Walmart GC to purchase food to donate to my local food pantry The Hope Center. It meant so much to me that I was able to give back to them because there was a time when they actually had to help me and I was so grateful for that.
