It's springtime again, and that means that in just over a month, I'll be gearing up for the annual Walk for Hunger that benefits Boston-area Project Bread. For those of you not familiar with this group, it is a critical provider of food to families in need. In this down economy, with rising food prices and layoffs or pay cuts, more and more families are turning to Project Bread for assistance.
I have been a part of the Walk of Hunger since 2004--this will be my 5 year anniversary of walking. I am writing today to ask you to sponsor me as I undertake another 20-mile trek to help end hunger.
I know that we are all worried about our financial security, but even a simple $5 donation can help to make a difference. Please consider making a secure donation today. And even if you can't make a donation yourself, please pass on this link to others, to spread the word. It is important that we all pitch in and do what we can.
