Its week’s like this that I truly love what I do. This week I’m traveling to Grand Rapids, Michigan to join the amazing team at The Stow Company for round 2 of The Organized Give. An initiate started by the Stow Company, to basically provide social good, to reach out and help those in need through the services of organization solutions. This week we will be working with Kids’ Food Basket, a local organization in the Grand Rapids area that provides Supper Sacks for more than 4,000 children every single day!
MIllions of children across the country are hungry every day and night. The Stow Company saw this as a great opportunity to raise awareness about childhood hunger nationwide while helping out to make a real difference in their hometown. Why does this matter to you? There are three things YOU can easily do to be part of the change.
1. Grab a Widget: Place this on your website. Between now and April, 9, 2012, ror every “LIKE” The Stow Company Facebook page receives, they will donate $1 to Kids’ Food Basket up to $3,000 total. These funds will be used to purchase nutritious food, packaging supplies and more.
2. Decorate Supper Sacks: If you are looking for an easy service project for your kids this Spring, sit down with them and help them create Supper Sacks. Think brown or white paper lunch sacks that every single meal is served through Kids Food Basket and how wonderful if they are covered in love from another child. Decorate supper sacks with cheerful messages and illustrations and if you like, take it the grown ups for a fun group project with friends and co-workers. The Stow Company will be sharing their favorites via their Facebook page before all the donations are delivered to Kid’s Food Basket. Please deliver or mail bags to our facility by Friday, April 6. Also, as much as we love sparkly things, please refrain from using glitter.

3. Come to the Twitter Party: Join us on Friday, March 16th from 1-2 EST as we work with Amy Bair of Resourceful Mommy Media to have a Twitter party with Kids’ Food Basket. Four people will win prizes during the Twitter Party and those prizes will be all about making a financial contribution to your hometown to help you support childhood hunger in your community. Make sure to RSVP and attend the party to get a chance to give back, too! Every 15 minutes one participant will win $200 to donate to the public school or non-profit organization of their choice.” We hope you can join us! We’ll be using the hashtag#OrganizedGive.
Lets do something about it, not only in Grand Rapids, Michigan but all across the nation. As simple as a like, as simple as a Supper Sack, as simple as an hour of your time so that you might be able to make a donation to address childhood hunger in your community too. Food ~ its something so simple that so many of us just take for granted. Tell me ~ how do you support childhood hunger programs in your hometown?
