20 Miles for the Hungry, Baby!

Aww yeah, kids. Who's walking 20 craaazy miles to help raise $ for the hungry on Sunday?!? This girl! In answer to your unasked question, yes, it's a pretty exhausting day. But it's so worth it. It rained all day last year and I still had the warm fuzzies thinking about how we were helping the hungry.

It's a great cause.
Did you know that one in five children under the age of twelve currently live in a household that struggles to put food on the table? Did you also know Project Bread feeds hungry people by supporting 400 emergency food programs in 136 communities in Massachusetts?

The high cost of living in Boston -
where the average two-bedroom apartment costs $1,266 per month - makes paying for food that much harder for struggling families. But we can help! Even a $10 donation provides 2 people at a soup kitchen with a bowl of hot soup and a sandwich.

Please visit my Walk Page and make a donation. It means a lot to me. Oh, and pray for no rain this year!

woot! i interned for a semester at pro-bread (as i affectionately call it - though my sister prefers "the loaf") when i was in college, and worked part-time and full-time there for the next three years! so i LOVE the walk for hunger!

and just in case you didn't feel good enough, i can vouch for the fact that they're a great organization, with great people who do great work :)
