Ending childhood hunger is very important to me. And I know that it's important to you, too.
If you've been waiting to make a tax-deductible gift to the No Kid Hungry campaign, the time is now. December 31 is the deadline for tax-deductible gifts, and we're counting on you to make sure we hit the ground running in 2013.
You don't have to take my word for why ending childhood hunger is a priority; hear what 17-year-old Austin has to say about his struggle with hunger:
"Childhood hunger in America is important to me because it happened to me. It hurts and I hated it and all I wanted was to eat. Too many kids today go home from school and are not sure if they will have a meal that night. It is no joke and we need to do something about it because no kid deserves to go without food."
Austin's right: we must end childhood hunger. Too many of our kids are facing hunger. How can our nation's children succeed if they continue to suffer?
That's where you come in. I urge you to make your tax-deductible gift to the No Kid Hungry campaign today and take advantage of our special matching gift offer.
A generous Share Our Strength donor is personally matching all gifts, up to $500,000, making your gift go twice as far in making a difference in the lives of children struggling with hunger. For example:
- $46 can connect a child with a summer of meals and a year of school breakfast.Your $46 becomes $92!
- $100 can help deliver mobile meals to a child in need for three months. Your $100 becomes $200!
- $250 can help provide meals to a child in an afterschool program for a full school year. Your $250 becomes $500!
When you give to the No Kid Hungry campaign, you do more than connect a child with healthy meals. You bring hope to children like Austin who are struggling with hunger. Thanks for all that you do for No Kid Hungry.
