Blogging Out Hunger: So, I Got Stop & Shop To Do Their Part, Now It's Your Turn!!!
By Liz Thompson on December 30, 2008
Well, I asked my friends at Stop & Shop if they would like to help sponsor This Full House with a call out for donations in support of Blogging Out Hunger and they seemed to feel that it's, you know, a pretty good idea.
Aaaand, here's the good part, there's a way you (yes, YOU!) oh, savvy Internets, can help.
Why, by doing what you do best...of course!!!
Just so you know, Stop & Shop is actually making a pretty significant donation to the New Jersey Food Bank this holiday season. Its Food For Friends
campaign raised more than $1 million dollars which is being distributed
to 300 local hunger relief organizations throughout the Northeast --
the New Jersey Food bank receives about $74,500.
Stop & Shop gets the value of supporting bloggers (like, helping to make the New Jersey Moms Blog Launch Party a great success and sponsoring this Thanksgiving giveaway) and they're willing to help a Mommyblogger out this time, too.
By helping me to continue to spread the word about the desperate need
that The Community Food Bank of New Jersey is in due to the increased demands being put on New Jersey food pantries.
Here's where you (yes, YOU!) come in. All you have to do is a leave a
comment on the original blog post over at This Full House. Like, telling us your plan on dealing with this
cuh-ray-zee holiday week, or something as simple as, you know, what's
Stop & Shop will donate $1.00 for each comment and are more than ready to write a check (for up to $300.00) to The Community Food Bank of New Jersey!!!
As of today, we've raised $116 -- thank you if you've already visited with us and left a comment -- but, I'm turning to BlogHer for help in reaching my goal of $300.
Because, that's what BlogHers do best.
I know, 300 comments (just who do I think I am, Dooce)
it's a tall order, so I hope you'll consider joining me in spreading some much needed mojo across the Internets, this week!
Because nice matters, hunger sucks and Stop & Shop knows we care...DAMMIT!!!
