I know it’s an ambitious goal. But I figure, as long as I keep getting donations (both small and large) I can hit this goal!
As of this posting, I have raised $2721.87. With special thanks to everyone who donated, especially JoeTaxpayer for his Feed The People matching challenge: $500 when I raised $1000: complete! And another $500 when I hit $2000! Also completed!
Wait. If you’re new to the blog, you might be asking “What is the Walk for Hunger?” GREAT QUESTION!
The Walk for Hunger is an annual fundraising event from Project Bread. It’s a 20-mile walk beginning and ending in the Boston Common, weaving through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, and Cambridge before heading across the Harvard Bridge back to Boston. The money raised from the Walk for Hunger goes on to fund many initiatives that feed the hungry with healthy and nutritious food!
This is a really important topic to me. Besides personal finance, some other topics I care a lot about are STEM Education and Fitness. When it comes to education, good nutrition is incredibly important. Without enough good food, children’s brain development is hindered, they can’t concentrate on their schoolwork, and they are set up for all sorts of future problems.
And an important part of being physically fit is having the right nutrition! You can’t stay in shape, maintain your muscle mass, or really be healthy if you don’t have the proper fuel!
So, how can you help?
There are lots of options!
*You can sign up to walk! It’s not too late!
*You can sign up to volunteer! They need lots of people to help out along the 20-mile walk route!
If you have any questions about the Walk for Hunger, or want to share any fundraising ideas or your own insights on food insecurity and feeding our hungry neighbors, please leave a comment!
