Holiday Donation Drive – Share the Love!

My friend, Mo, at One Ping Only is hosting a holiday donation drive at her site this week out of the wonderful goodness of her heart.  I’ve talked before about poverty and hunger and the fact that we can all make a difference.  Even the “small” things that we do can make a huge difference in someone’s life.  Mo is taking a step to make a difference.  Here’s something she said in her post that really struck me:

“…it’s the idea of people going hungry at a time when so many of us are buying expensive, indulgent things for each other that is getting to me the most this year.”

What she’s doing: For every comment left at her Holiday Donation Drive post, she’s donating $1 to Second Harvest Food Bank


What you get: A chance to win a $20 gift card from Starbucks!  Or, you can opt to have her give that money in donation to and keep the warm fuzzy feeling you’ll get from helping families who are less fortunate this year.

When: Now through Friday, December 19th at 6:00 PT

If you have a blog, you can also share the love by posting about this and spreading the word.  If you use Twitter, take a minute to tweet a message with a link to Mo’s post and spread some more love.  Thanks a million!!

You can make a difference.  Go do it right now.  It’s easy and will only take 30 seconds of your time.

    Thank you so much for getting the word out and helping me raise money. Quite a few people have come my way from you and I’m hoping there will be even more! 🙂
