Making A Difference

This post brought to you by The Walmart Foundation. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the costs of living and unemployment sky-rocketing, you may not have much money to spend on your arts and crafts. Can you imagine what it would be like if you had no money to feed your family? You may not be aware of it, but 50 million U.S. citizens are faced with that situation every day.

Spring is usually the most difficult season for them, since donations to charity and food banks decrease during that time, but all of us can help out by participating in the Vote to fight spring hunger with Walmart

Walmart, in association with Feeding America and food brands such as America- ConAgra, General Mills, Kraft, and Kellogg's, gives the opportunity to take part in a nationwide Fighting Hunger Together initiative, which will take place from Monday, April 9 through April 30, 2012.

During that period, you can cast your vote for one of the 200 communities with the highest unemployment rate (determined by a Department of Labor Report) on Facebook and provide some relief from hunger.

The community with the highest vote, which will be made known on May 1st, will receive $1 million in donations from Walmart and the next 20 on the list will each receive $50,000. My vote would go to Mobile in Alabama, since that is closest to home.

When visiting a Walmart store between April 9 and April 30, make sure to buy certain products from the brands mentioned above. Look at the sings in the store and the packaging of the products; buying these assures you donate a meal to Feeding America or Action for Healthy Kids, a nonprofit fighting childhood hunger.

Vote on Facebook, buy the products, and spread the word. It is a small thing to do, but makes a great difference!
