Zoe, AJ, Jeff and I donated this past Chanukah to Feeding America and we committed our family to donating monthly to this and other causes causes to stop children from going hungry in America.
Each year, hunger affects over 48.1 million Americans, including 15.3 million children. These numbers are both tragic and unacceptable, and they represent very real people struggling to make ends meet all across the country. I am excited to be participating in a fundraising event for the New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at the Peloton Cycle Studio in New York City. I’m pledging to ride my heart out to raise funds and awareness to fight hunger at this year’s #RideAgainstHunger.
I’ve set a personal fundraising goal of $1000. Will you help me reach it? Your donations will go directly to support the efforts of WhyHunger and New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition to get nutritious food onto everyone’s plates and to address the root causes that keep people hungry.
Every single dollar counts, so please give whatever you can. You can donate online at my personal #RideAgainstHunger fundraising page https://www.crowdrise.com/marisspinningforhunger. If you’d prefer to write a check, please make it payable to “WhyHunger” and send it to me at 14 East 4th Street, #1128, New York, NY 10012.
Thank you for your financial and moral support! With your generous donations and my best effort, we can touch the lives of many who need our help. If you have any questions or want to join my spinning team, please do not hesitate to contact me at 917-270-7257 or email@example.com
With Gratitude, Mari
