As many of you are probably aware, there is a drive underway this April 1st, for bloggers to unite and donate to the organization Feeding America, formerly known as the Nation’s Food Bank Network. April Food Day is asking all those who write blogs and those who read them to donate $1.00 on April 1st (or even today!) One dollar is such a small amount, yet it equates to ten pounds of food, or seven full meals! If you wish, and are able, you may donate any amount.
I know I don’t have to tell you about the hard economic times some people are living through today. At Cote de Texas, I write about the fun things in life, the beautiful things, and the superficial, the very things that come from a life full of success. Unfortunately, I don’t spend much time discussing what is going on out there in America now, where so many people are out of work and suffering. The very things I write about seem so trivial in the face of the devastation and hunger so many families face each and every day. It only seems fitting that together, we take one day out of the year to think about something more important than the usual.
So, today and tomorrow, please take a minute and go HERE, to donate $1.00 to a great cause. Be sure and take the time to read the literature on their web site to see all the good work that Feeding America does.
Thank you so much!!!!! Together, all of us can make a difference.
