Stamp Out Hunger




Sorry that we're only two days away from this before I'm letting you guys know! (I just heard about it this week.) This is an extremely easy way to donate food!!
All you do is bag up items like canned foods (meats, vegetables, or fruit) or pasta, cereal, or rice. (No glass containers or expired items, please.) Your mail carrier will pick up the food and take it your local food bank. Wow! How easy!
Locals: I already called our post office. They are participating. If you're a couponer and have a stockpile, this will be even easier for you. Check out the Stamp Out Hunger Website for more information.
Happy giving!
Linked to Things I Love Thursday (I love giving made easy!)
and Just for the Joy of It (It really is a joy to give!)
P.S. Everyone, please comment to win one of 10 beautiful bracelets I'm giving away here. Thanks!

  1. Thank you for sharing this! We use to participate at our last home, but I have also missed it several years because I forgot to look for it!

  2. We usually get flyers announcing this event, but I haven't this year. I'll have to call our local office and see if our city is participating. Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Very cool- I've never heard of this before!

    Love your family photo from last year's vacation- you are sooo tan!! Anyway, GREAT resolutions- I have also been trying to be more purposeful with my time with the kids ad actually playing with them. I have noticed that all 3 o us are more relaxed and less hurried.

  6. Wonderful idea! Thanks for telling me about it!

    My friend Kaley at ChaChing on a shoe string is also doing some neat, community focused stuff this week... I know she has a lot of details on her facebook page and her blog. It might be a great way to team up and spread the word!

    Thanks for sharing your JOY (and the spirit of generosity!)
