Fight Hunger. Spark Change. Make a Real Difference.

It may feel like giving your time or your money to a charitable cause is just something you can't fit into your life. I completely understand. As a busy mom of 6, our day -- and our budget -- is already pretty stretched. That's why I get so excited when I see brands I love working together to do something about a very real problem in the U.S.: Hunger.

This spring, some of our family's favorite foods are joining forces with Walmart to make a real difference to those who struggle with putting enough food on the table. The "Fight Hunger. Spark Change." campaign is doing it's part to help Feeding America® secure 75 million meals for affiliate food banks across the country.  This will go a long way in the goal to bring help to the millions of people who are food insecure (or who aren't sure where their next meal may be coming from.)

Who is involved?
  • Walmart
  • Campbell's
  • ConAgra Foods
  • General Mills
  • Kellogg Company
  • Kraft
  • Unilever
  • You....
That's right. You are a very important piece of the puzzle, and it's very easy to help!

Just shop your local Walmart store from now until May 3, and do one of the following:

1) Purchase one of the 239 participating products, and the supplier will make a donation to Feeding America on behalf of a local food bank.
2) Choose to make a donation at the cash register when you check out (in increments of $1, $2, or $5).
3) Get together with 6 of your friends, family, or co-workers to take a picture and upload it publicly to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #WeSparkChange.  Walmart will donate $10 up to a maximum of $1.5 million, to Feeding America and their member food banks.

So you see?  Even if you are short on time, or cash, you can really make a difference!

I challenge you to help Walmart reach their goal of donating a total of $3 million (that's good for 30 million meals) by joining the "Fight Hunger. Spark Change." Challenge.  Just post the photo as required above and give your friends 48 hours to do the same!  Imagine all the people that could be fed if we all just took a moment to help.

**DISCLAIMER: For every participating product purchased at Walmart between April 6th and May 3rd, 2015, the manufacturer will donate $0.10 to Feeding America® - enough to secure 1 meal on behalf of local food banks - up to each manufacturer’s maximum donation.  Each manufacturer’s maximum donation is provided on the participating packages.  See package or for details.
