This fundraiser closed 3 months ago
As always, for my birthday, instead of giving me presents, I'm asking all my friends to donate to one of my favorite causes. This year, I chose the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The reason why I chose this foundation, was, that there are many families (families of one to families of many) that are suffering financially (and emotionally) due to many reasons. It could be a lose of job, lose of a spouse or family member, the economy. Whatever the reason, going hungry, shouldn't be the result of them. I know food companies and grocery stores to survive to, but there are times I walk thru the grocery store, and I look at the prices, I think to myself, "This is ridiculous." As a family of one, even I cant afford some of the stuff at the store.
So, for this year, I'm asking to give what you can. Be it a $1 to $100. Please help me giving to families that need just slightly more than you do. Most times you don't see the families that struggle to put food on the table. Media usually only shows homeless people on the street or in shelters. But, there is probably a family, maybe even living right next door to you, that is suffering. Please give, so that noone goes hungry. Thank you
