Share Our Shrength

What a GREAT organization!!!
I was watching Food Network with my son a couple weeks ago and saw a commercial for The Great American Bake Sale benefiting Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry Foundation. It was explaining how people like you and me can make a HUGE difference in the fight to end childhood hunger just by holding a bake sale. I went on line and did some research and i was hooked.
That day my hubby, two kids and i started DFW'S Cup Cakes For Kids Bake Sale set for May 31. But we are aiming big with a goal of $5000 to raise! We have already partnered with Starbucks, Kroger and Super Target who all say they will either donate $25 gift cards or small items to be raffled off. O yes we are going to have a raffle too, so fun! I will be donating a few items from my store, www.bejeweleddesigns.net to be raffled as well as other fun items. We are wanting this to be HUGE and we know it can be. Every dollar raised counts, every effort counts and is seen in the eyes of the children this great organization helps every day.
What great women!
I listed a post about our Bake Sale on the Mom Pack ( one of the best yahoo groups around!) and was flooded with great advice, ideas and a few true angels have taken time out of their lives to jump on board and help how ever they can. Either by going out and buying items we desperately need to make this a success or by looking around their house and sending in what they can. Thank you all so very much to doing your part to end child hood hunger!
Stay Posted!!
I will be doing "updates" our progress with the sale here so keep looking back to see how things are going!
