Welcome to My Personal Page

It's here again: that time of year when we start thinking about the holidays and often that means making sure we have a list of the gifts we need to purchase. Black Friday has us standing in lines at midnight on Thanksgiving. Small Business Saturday has us remembering to buy locally and spend our money at the small businesses in our local town. Cyber Monday has us racking up our credit card balances online. Of course, the way stores get us to spend is by offering sales under the cloak of making us think we are giving something meaningful and saving money so we can buy even more. At the same time, there are 16 million kids in the U.S. that will not be worrying about what gifts are being bought for them, but how they will get their next meal.

In the true spirit of giving, not masked as a disguise to spend, Giving Tuesday is a day that truly is about giving. Started by 92Y and the United Nations Foundation in 2012, last year saw over 30,000 organizations from around the world use social media to help raise awareness and funds for their causes. At No Kid Hungry, Giving Tuesday is a huge opportunity: for every dollar raised, a child is connected to ten meals. And thanks to Hickory Farms and Kettle Brand Chips, this Giving Tuesday, funds will be matched meaning it's double the impact which makes every dollar connect a child with twenty meals!

Of course we'll have photos and video to share.

No child in America should grow up hungry. But too many kids in our country don't have the food they need to thrive.

I'm helping end childhood hunger in America by supporting the No Kid Hungry campaign. No Kid Hungry is connecting kids all across the country with healthy food where they live, learn and play.

Every $1 you donate can help connect a child with up to 10 meals.

No kid in this country should grow up hungry.

Will you help me end childhood hunger this #GivingTuesday?
