In less than a month, I’ll be joining thousands of others in walking 20 miles throughout Boston and neighboring cities for Walk For Hunger. The Walk for Hunger is an annual fundraising event run by Project Bread to raise money and awareness to combat hunger.
This will be my 4th year participating in the Walk For Hunger. I’m happy to say that for the past 3 years, I’ve raised more and more money each year. I passed $1k my first year, $2k my second year, and raised over $3k my third year. I’d LOVE if we could raise over $4k this year, but we’re still a ways away. I believe in this cause, and I love that this program allows me to help people gain access to healthy, nutritious food.
So, again this year, I’m asking for your donations. Any amount you contribute can help!
As in years past, my blogging friend Joe Taxpayer has put forth challenge funds. This year his challenge is the same as last year: When we raise $1k, he’ll contribute $500, and when we reach $2k, he’ll contribute another $500. It’s a great added incentive to get everyone to donate!
How can your contribution help? Below are just a few examples:
$25 Provides a nourishing hot meal for 15 people at a community supper program
$50 Helps a low-income family purchase $100 worth of fresh produce at a farmers’ market through double value coupons
$100 Provides grocery gift cards to low-income seniors.
The good news is, any donation, big or small, helps get healthy, nutritious food to those in need! Even $5 or $10 makes an impact!
And if you donate, you can see if your employer will match your contribution.
Also, if you’re local, you can also help out by volunteering, either before, during, or after the Walk!
If you have any questions about how you can help, let me know!
Thanks for all your support!
[Edit: For those of you wondering, we didn’t hit $4k this year, but we did raise $3016! Thanks for all your support!]
