I remember, back in the good ol' days, when I was working for Documentum before it got bought by EMC, before it went public, we participated in a food drive.
Documentum was going head to head with another older company who will remain nameless because I forgot who it was but it was probably Oracle, and our rep was talking to their rep and their rep was trying to console us saying that they always donated more than anyone and one day Documentum might come close to their donation..
Documentum almost doubled their contribution and we were just a little (50 people or so) start up. Ah, those were the days.
And in that spirit, please go to this site
and leave a comment. Furthermore, Life by Chocolate is participating.
As food foodies, our passion is food: We cook food, eat food, think food and dream food, but there are people out there who only do those last two. Did you know that 1 billion people in the world suffer from hunger or malnutrition and about 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes? I plan to help change that.
What are you most thankful for? Let me know by leaving a comment below and I’ll donate a nickel ($0.05) for everyone that does. I realize it’s not all that much by itself, but my goal is to raise awareness and get other bloggers to join in and participate to help feed the needy this Thanksgiving. All comments posted on this post from now until Thanksgiving (Nov. 27th) will be counted and I will donate a nickel for each to The Hunger Site. Simply leave a comment below to tell me (and everyone else) what you are thankful for. Also, make sure to visit The Hunger Site and click on the “Click To Give” button to give for free.
If you want to participate: Post a similar post on your blog, link here, and include your post link in your comment below. Feel free to change the dollar amount per comment or even where you donate the money. I’ll add all of the participating sites below so be sure to link here so we can help raise awareness, show our thanks and help feed the hungry! Otherwise, if you want to pledge along with me, let me know and I’ll add your name to a list below.Other Participating Sites.
Hopefully this childhood favorite will spur you to action! Leave a comment! The minimum I will donate is $100 but if this gets wildly popular I suppose I’ll have to institute a maximum.
