Week 2 Blog Entry

Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the meeting this week, however, my group filled me in on what was accomplished. We were arranged in groups based on our MAD card preferences. I was excited to hear that I would be in the hunger group along with Annelise, Jordie, Ali, Dylan, Taylor, and Logan.

Although I have worked previously with a wonderful non-profit, Feeding Children Everywhere, I know there are so many ways we can help fight hunger in our community as well as worldwide. Annelise and I really like Feeding Children everywhere because it is very hands-on. You and your team organize a hunger project with the money you collected and then you package the meals yourself. The hunger project we previously participated in only took about 30 minutes and we were able to package over 10,000 meals! Then you are able to decide where you wish to send the food. It was really eye-opening to see how hunger is a problem in our own community, not just in third world countries.

Annelise and I came up with a few names for our group. We particularly like “Hunger Heroes”. From our past experience in this field of philanthropic ventures, we know that it is possible to make an impact, and we hope to show others that every bit counts.
