BENEFITING: Feeding America

U.S. Service Member

THE STORY:

Congress has shut down the government at an estimated cost of 12.5 million dollars per hour. Government workers who were already furloughed earlier this year have been sent home without pay, urgent medical services have been halted, and poor families will not receive vital programs for basic subsistence. Congress has, however, made exceptions for military pay.

We don't want it.

We serve our country out of a sense of duty. And we will share in our country's hardships. So until Congress chooses to restore funding for programs that allow the families we fight for to survive at home, we are donating our paychecks to the poorest among us, those most impacted by the shutdown.

Even if you're not in the military, join us in donating your paycheck  - or any amount - and help out a cause that is directly targeting hunger here in America. 

Feeding America is the nation’s largest hunger-relief charity. It distributes more than 2 billion pounds of donated food and grocery products annually and feeds more than 37 million Americans each year, serving more than 200 food banks across all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. All proceeds go directly to Feeding America.

I love this concept. I don't have much at all, but I don't go hungry. Maybe when congress can stand behind our PRESIDENT we can move forward. 1 year ago
