Want to be a Hunger Hero?! #HungerHeroes

Be a Hunger Hero logoBefore you get all confused, I am working with Champions for Kids on two projects this summer.  That’s because this amazing organization, Champions for Kids is committed to and dedicated to making it simple to give children in local communities the resources they need to thrive.   I always love ways to foster a habit of giving in my children.  It’s a mantra that I live by and try to share every day.  That’s why I love Champions for Kids, their core values are simple, yet profound, and drive their efforts to “mobilize millions” to help children — All children should have: Someone who cares; a Place to belong; Hope for tomorrow and provisions for their journey. All children.

I’ve advocated and spoken about this many times, but did you know that 16 million American children live in poverty?  Many of these kids don’t have reliable access to the nutritious meals that help them thrive and succeed both academically and socially.  I was one of those kids many many years ago.  You might have seen me in school and never would have known that my parents struggled to put food on the table and even begged for cups of rice.  It’s a hard place for a parent to be, wanting only the best for your children and unable to provide it.   That’s why I am thrilled to support organizations that hope to eradicate this epidemic.
