You go, J_RUBIN! I am going on a sightseeing tour in a little bit, then to the outlets to do some shopping, but before that I will be taking a walk around the resort property here because it is absolutely gorgeous outside today.

Thanks for your enthusiasm and participation!

I just got done with a 2.5 hour walk, delivering paper shopping bags and letters to houses in my subdivision for a community food drive. (I didn't know there were 650 houses before I volunteered for this!) lol I'm praying for a great turn out!

Any little bit helps!!

I wasn't aware of this, J_RUBIN - thanks for sharing the information, I will go to the website, too. That date happens to be my brother's birthday, too.

Did you know that June 5th is National Hunger Awareness Day in the U.S.?

I thought while dieting I could relate to those who suffer hunger pangs. However, I found the actual statistics very difficult to wrap my mind around. The extent of the issue of poverty in the U.S. and even in our own back yards is shocking and devestating.

What can we do on June 5th to be more aware and make a difference?

1. Look up the statistics at http://www.secondharvest.org/learn_about_h
unger/ They're staggering.

2. The national allotment for a one person household in the Food Stamps program is $155 per month or an average of $5.15 per day (less than $1.72 per meal for three meals a day). Try to meet this budget for one day and donate the rest of what you would have eaten/spent to a local food bank.

3. Visit the Hunger Site online (www.hungersite.com)and click the link to donate a cup of food to those going without today. In fact, sign up for the daily reminder to do this every day. Or shop for Graduation or Father's Day gifts from their catalog to support their mission. Or just buy something nice for yourself.

4. Donate food, donate funds, donate time.

5. Spread the word. The hunger site provides free e-cards to send to everyone in your address book.

Together we can make a difference.
