She is one of the awesome people who actually does something to help feed the hungry.
And she is holding an excellent contest! If you donate just $5.00 to help feed the hungry for Thanksgiving, she will enter your name in the contest for a chance to win a stunning Pink Zircon ring that I have shown above.
How many times do we enter contests hoping to win, and never give a thought to those more unfortunate than ourselves? By entering THIS contest, and by donating just $5.00 you will feel good whether you win the ring or not!! I do, and I did!! I donated yesterday after reading her write up, and I don't care if I win the ring or not, I feel good knowing that someone that is hungry will have food this Thanksgiving, thanks to Michelle and myself.
I was in this terrible position a few years ago when I was unemployed and unable to pay my bills and/or put food on the table. I had to swallow my pride and go to the food pantries to ask for help. Let me tell you, it is a lousy feeling. I can't imagine doing it for longer than I had to. But I remember feeling guilty more than anything.....
You feel like you are worthless, and shouldn't be getting a hand out, but on the other side of that coin, you can't find work, and the money isn't there. What do you do?? You have to reach out and hope that there is help out there. I remember that Thanksgiving, my holiday dinner consisted of a tuna fish sandwich. Lousy, I know, but at least it was something. You hear everyone talk about their plans and what they ate, and you just keep your mouth shut because you don't want to say that you had tuna fish. But that was all I had, and at least I ate. So many people don't. That is why I am behind this 1000%. Now you know why.
Michelle is hoping to raise $100.00 to help feed the hungry, can we help her out?
Please head on over to her blog by clicking HERE, read what she wrote on the left hand side of her blog, and donate to this wonderful cause. The requirement is that you have to live in US, Canada, Philippines, Britain, or Australia.
Let her know that Kat sent you, so she knows how close we blogging families are!!
I thank you, and Melissa thanks you, and the hungry people you will feed will be thankful too!
