“The average person will eat #90Meals in the month of September. That’s 90 chances to dine out and make a difference for No Kid Hungry.
30 Days x 3 Meals a Day = #90Meals”
Life is busy. The foodie in me would love to be able to tell you that I’m home cooking perfectly balanced, fabulous meals for my family each night all Martha Stewart-ish-like. Truth be told we eat out at least twice a week, so ‘dining out’ in September to benefit hungry kids in my area is a win-win… and makes me feel a lot less guilty about doing so.
Just before “Sophie” was published I thought, “If I sell a million books, I’d like to find a charity to donate to.” No Kid Hungry was a no brainer. While I haven’t quite reached those numbers yet, I know that through small donations and participating in fun campaigns like this one, my family and I can still make a difference. I can’t stand the thought of a hungry child anywhere, let alone in my own backyard.
I was honored and thrilled at the opportunity to participate in the #90Meals campaign as 1 of 60 social influencers along with 30 celebs chosen by No Kid Hungry to pick a specific day in September to commit to Dining Out and then share pics on Twitter and Instagram. In return, No Kid Hungry will highlight my blog and me on their website. How great is that? *in my world, really great.
Stay tuned. The day I’ve chosen is Saturday, September 20th and I’m working on enlisting some fun folks to dine out with me!
Every meal matters! When you dine out for any of your #90Meals at a participating restaurant this September, you’re helping the 1 in 5 kids who struggles with hunger in the U.S. live fuller, healthier, more successful lives. You’re helping
• Connect kids to breakfast in the classroom
• Feed kids during the summer when there’s no school lunch
• Teach kids the benefits of healthy eating and cooking
You’re making No Kid hungry a reality, one meal at a time!
$1 connects a child with up to 10 meals. Find a participating restaurant near you and join me in this worthy cause.
