I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
Be honest, how many times do you go to the refrigerator, open it up to stare at the contents and quickly proclaim (or think to yourself) that there is absolutely nothing to eat. For most of us, it truly isn't that there isn't anything in the fridge, but simply nothing we want, right?
But did you know that 16 million American children live in poverty? When they open the fridge to find a snack, they truly are greeted with emptiness. They do not have reliable access to the nutritious meals that not only keep them healthy but also help them both academically and socially.
Champions for Kids agrees. They believe that all children should have: Someone who cares; a Place to belong; Hope for tomorrow and provisions for their journey. All children. They want to make it simple to give children the resources they need and show that helping others doesn't necessarily have to come in large doses, but rather foster a 'habit of giving'. We may not all be able to afford to give a lot at once, but if we all did just a little, those little acts of giving would add up to something big.
This is what the premise of the Hunger Heroes campaign in all about- action. By tapping into the power of giving, we can ALL be superheroes by helping to give the gift of food to those in need. And throughout the month of August, becoming a Hunger Hero to local families in need could not be easier. All you have to do is head to your local Sam's Club and purchase any of the following products:
With your purchase, you can help Champions for Kids provide much needed nourishment to children! It's as simple as that! Simply by buying products we might have purchased otherwise, we are helping out...no extra cost to us! (And if these aren't products your family personally uses, perhaps consider donating to a local food pantry? Double the giving!)
Want to do your part? Head to your local Sam's Club and start shopping!!
