*Sharing Your Strength* is not just for adults
Cookie Central's Great American Bake Sale is creeping up on it's 4th year and I would like to take a moment to highlight two of the most important people in our campaign - my little girls Jazmin (10) and Mia (5). From the very first bake sale they have been such a driving force. From lemonade stands to mini flash mobs, these girls have not only taken part but motivated their friends to help as well. It's a true testament to how well even the youngest child can understand the hardships hungry children face each day.
It's Not Just My Kids!
Growing numbers of children and young adults are eager to help in the fight against childhood hunger in America. And now, with the help of Sodexo Foundation, Share Our Strength has released No Kid Hungry 2 and has embraced Share Our Strength's mission to end childhood hunger offering a one stop site full of resources, ideas and inspiration for any young person to make a difference.
No Kid Hungry 2 website is all about fun easy ways for the elementary school aged child to get involved. Find tool kits on how to collect Coins for Kids, sell Share Our Strength donation pin ups, host a bake sale (my favorite) and so much more.
No Kid Hungry 2 site is perfect for teens, providing tools to build momentum online using Facebook and Twitter as well as great fundraising/awareness raising ideas like The Food Stamp Challenge and (another favorite of mine) The Flash Mob.
