My blog is going orange for the month of September and it’s for a great cause. I am participating in the Moms Fighting Hunger initiative headed by Stacy Teet of Kids Stuff World. Eating healthy is a very important topic for me. It breaks my heart when I see a child drinking soda or eating junk instead of real food. What breaks my heart even more is that there are children in our own country going hungry everyday. The fact is 1 out of 5 children in the US struggle with hunger, that’s 16 million kids. September is National Hunger Awareness month and if you would like to get involved too there are many things you can do to help:
- Donate to your local food bank, but don’t forget about the kids with peanut allergies. Follow my friend Pamela’s lead and donate a jar of sunbutter.
- Go to the Moms Fighting Hunger page and “like” it.
- Join the TwEAT OUT on September 17. This is for all you Twitter users out there, you can help spread the word all day on Monday September 17 9AM-9PM EST
- Watch this video to get inspired.
Look for posts on this topic all month long.
