On #GivingTuesday 2015, YOU Can Help Make Sure There’s #NoKidHungry!

26 Nov

It’s that time of year again!

The time we stop and think about how thankful we are for everything we have. Family, friends, kindness, happy times, health, warm shelter, good food…

Even in the United States, though, many kids don’t have enough to eat every day. In fact, it’s 1 out of every 5 kids. The good news is, it’s simple to help!

TwEAT OUT for #NoKidHungry

8 Sep

BTC ThunderclapIt’s that time of year again!  Time to help school kids get the nutritious meals they need to do well in school.  You and No Kid Hungry can help make it possible.

It’s easy as pie. 🙂

Help by joining the  twEAT OUT for No Kid Hungry on Tuesday, September 8. Find a participating restaurant then or during September.  Big social media fan?  Find a participating restaurant and give them a little social media love to thank them for helping feed kids!   Be sure to use the hashtag #NoKidHungry so everyone can follow the conversation.

Here are a few more simple ways you can make an impact:

1. Add your name to the #NoKidHungry Thunderclap and encourage your friends to do the same. At Noon ET on Sept. 8, the Thunderclap will send a pre-written message on your behalf to any or all of your Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr accounts—simultaneously. For a few minutes, Twitter will be taken over by #NoKidHungry.

2. Follow @NoKidHungry on Twitter, “like” the  No Kid Hungry Facebook page, and follow No Kid Hungry on Instagram.

3. On Sept. 8 during the twEAT OUT, retweet & share messages that come from @NoKidHungry and use #NoKidHungry in all of your messages. Here are some samples:

  • Dine out for #NoKidHungry! Visit nokidhungry.org to find a participating #restaurant near you!
  • Going out to eat? Don’t forget to visit a #NoKidHungry restaurant. Find #restaurants here: nokidhungry.org

Making a difference in the life of a child is always rewarding, but creating that impact doesn’t get any easier than during the month of September.

The Power of Passionate Social Media Users Helps Feed Children

10 Jan

Right before the New Year is a time when people think about the past year, and how they can help in the future. In the effort to help make sure that very soon there’s No Kid Hungry, something amazing happened this past December: the No Kid Hungry 2012 Give-A-Thon.

On December 20, 2012, hundreds of “virtual” strangers came together, and then invited many thousands more of their friends, to help ensure children in these amazing United States have enough food.

No child should grow up hungry in America, but 1 in 5 children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.

Throughout the day on December 20, millions of people saw how important it is that in this beautiful country of opportunity, there should be No Kid Hungry.

In 24 hours, with a small team of passionate #NKH advocates leading the charge, hundreds of donors gave thousands of dollars to No Kid Hungry – to the tune of more than $30,000 (including a match for gifts).  Many donations came in small amounts, from first-time givers led to donate by seeing the passion of other donors on social media. And every penny was keenly appreciated.

And not only social media stars and individuals contributed.  Sponsors like Hotspot Shield  gave 100 donors of $20 or more an annual subscription for their premium online security, privacy and malware protection service, and BTC Revolutions donated an iPad Mini that (almost) inspired riots to help.

In this day and age, helping a cause can mean much more than writing a check or giving online.  It can mean getting your social graph – everyone important to you, that you interact with on social media – involved.  And those connections are what make events like #NKH’s Give-A-Thon a way for people to turn a passion for helping little kids eat, into a blockbuster event of giving.

Let’s All Help Make Sure There’s #NoKidHungry! 12/20 Give-A-Thon!

19 Dec

Happy Holidays!  This is the time of year when we all are even more touched by that giving spirit, and I am honored to be part of an amazing cause and campaign, #NoKidHungry, that’s fun, rewarding, and easy to participate in!

On Thursday, December 20, please join in the effort to help end childhood hunger by helping spread the #NoKidHungry word through tweets, Facebook posts, emails, and/or direct (gentle?) nudging of friends and family. 😉

We will be having a Give-A-Thon all day 12/20, with some amazing surprises and prizes for those generous souls who spread the workd and MAKE A DONATION!

* A generous Share Our Strength donor decided to do something extraordinary this holiday season: personally match all gifts up to $500,000. This means the impact of our Give-A-Thon will be doubled at the end of the day, making twice the difference for kids struggling with hunger!

Team No Kid Hungry Holiday Give-A-Thon

No Kid Hungry Give-A-Thon 12/20/2012 to end childhood hunger

Author note: Join us! Help us spread the word this Thursday! Visit the Team fundraising page.

This Thursday, December 20, we are excited to work with our amazing online community to hold a Team No Kid Hungry Holiday Give-A-Thon. Why now? Why in the middle of the holiday season? There are a number of reasons.

Primarily, hunger doesn’t take a holiday. When EVERY child should be excited for winter breaks, many know exactly how many school meals they will miss over the holidays, and don’t know from where their next meal will come. It is important for us to remember these children and their families during this time.

Fortunately, you can help. A $25 donation can connect a child to up to 250 meals. Are you wondering what to get that family member who has everything? Or are you trying to find something special for a friend? Consider giving the gift of No Kid Hungry this holiday season – a meaningful, and truly life-changing gift.

Through our countless online advocates and our Team No Kid Hungry community, we are making a day of it, and hosting our Holiday Give-A-Thon, complete with incredible prizes throughout the day that will amaze you! If we hit $10,000* in donations, one lucky donor will receive an iPad mini. Drawings will take place all day, so please spend the day with us!

Are you on Facebook? Be sure to like our Facebook page and follow our posts this week. On Twitter? Follow us here, and join in the #nokidhungry conversation. Check back on Facebook as we post our list of giveaway items!

How can you help prior to the Give-A-Thon? Share our Facebook posts, retweet our Give-A-Thon tweets, and spread the word. Plan your holiday shopping list, and do some one-stop, tax-deductible shopping here on Thursday.

The day will be hosted by our No Kid Hungry Social Council. Find out more, and consider getting involved!  Click “Join the Blogger Council” and we will be in touch. Thank you for all you do, for sharing your strengths with us.

Special thanks to friends (and Good Plus Tech client) AnchorFree for donating many annual HotSpot Shield Elite annual subscriptions (valued at $29.95 each!) , to be given to donors around various goals during the day on 12/20!  Stay safe keeping in touch, shopping, and making donations on all those mobile devices!
