Who can't use a Helping Hand?
According to Feeding America, approximately 5.7 million different people receive emergency food assistance from the organization in any given week.
You might remember, that I've joined forces with other local bloggers a couple of times over this past year to help raise awareness and fight this dreadful epidemic...
And now, I'm pleased to be a teeny tiny part of an even bigger awareness campaign...
To raise awareness about the national issue of hunger, Hamburger Helper® is partnering with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw to help Feeding America deliver millions of meals to local food banks through the Show Your Helping HandTM campaign. McGraw will lend his voice to the campaign through a Public Service Announcement which can be viewed right here!
You can support the worthy campaign by submitting codes from specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper at http://www.showyourhelpinghand.com/ or by logging on to make a donation. Hamburger Helper has already donated more than half a million dollars and will contribute up to an additional $100,000 to Feeding America through this program.
Don´t think one code will make a difference? The 17 cents Hamburger Helper donates per code is enough for Feeding America to deliver one meal to a local food bank.
You can also win an autographed copy of Tim McGraw´s "Southern Voice" CD by visiting http://www.showyourhelpinghand.com/.
Thanks to the fine folks at Hamburger Helper & MyBlogSpark, I have a prize pack that includes a box of Hamburger Helper skillet meals, a Hamburger Helper foam "Helping Hand" and a copy of Tim McGraw´s "Southern Voice" CD. In addition, Hamburger Helper will make a $10 donation to the Show Your Helping HandTM campaign on your behalf!!!
