There is a place in your town. And mine. A place where a direct connection is made between people in need and people who can help. A place where hunger is confronted straight on and, for a time at least, defeated.
Minimal bureaucracy. Maximum effect. Just sleeves rolled up, helping out. One hand reaching out for another. Making a difference.
When you look into it, you will be shocked at how many little kids there are without a home. And without a decent meal. Not to mention parents. The elderly. Sons and daughters. Wives and husbands. Here in what is still the horn of plenty.
That place in your town is called a food bank. This is a day on which several good folks decided to make a difference. The fine blogger of the Easy and Elegant Life [listed at the right margin] has taken it upon himself to make a call for others out here in the blogosphere to stand against hunger. And to make a difference in the most direct and immediate way possible.
Please take a moment today to bring some food to your local Food Bank. Or if you like, click over to http://feedingamerica.org/ and hit the donation button. They will make sure your donation gets put to immediate, direct and good use. As my son would say..."It's just the right thing, Dad."
Thanks to Chris at Easy and Elegant Life for taking this initiative. And thanks in advance to all of you Epics for helping out. Now is the time. Take a hand.
