I was telling another friend about my plan .. for every pound I get rid of, release or lose I am giving 5 pounds of food to the food bank. There are so many less fortunate people out there who can really use it and I feel that if I just do this little thing and get some other friends on board, we can feed a lot of hungry people. Even if you can only give pound for pound of weight that is something. I was going to do this for just the holidays but I plan on doing it through the winter and even further.. this time of year especially, churches who have pantries that serve the hungry are also in need so ask around and I am sure you will find somewhere that can use it. And if you earn that turkey but can not use it-- get it and donate it, it will make somebody's holiday table extra special if they can serve a whole meal. Use this link an search by zip code for your local food bank in the USA feedingamerica.org/default.aspx?show

You can also purchase cards at $35 for 5 cards and send them as Christmas cards that states a donation was made by the purchase of the card
