I am flying to New Orleans in the early morning for a design confrence- but before I leave I wanted to post on a very important topic.
A few other bloggers are also posting on this and I would like to spread the word as well. Blogger Action Day!
Everyday, the news is filled with the dire news about the current economic climate and a lot of us use the blogging community to take a break from the constant drumbeat. However, we can not ignore the fact that friends and family members, and even some blogger friends have lost their jobs because of the recession.
People who never had a worry in the world now have to think about where their next meal is coming from. People who never would have dreamt that they would need help are now showing up at the local food banks. But when they get there, the shelves are bare. There is not enough food being donated to meet the sudden rise in demand. There is not enough money to buy the food for the food banks. There is not a general understanding that food banks need help to help fill their shelves.
Every dollar contributed provides seven meals or 10 pounds of food. A gift of $25 provides 75 meals. Please take a few minutes and make a donation, no matter how large or small, to either your local food bank, or the national food bank organization, Feeding America
