Pete Matuszak's Fundraiser:

Pete's 36th Birthday Fundraiser for the Greater Chicago Food Depository

THE STORY:

Hey All,
Well it's that time of year again, when I get one year closer to something and further from something else. Help me commemorate my birthday by donating to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Seriously no gifts people (not even you Mom or Verl), all I want for my birthday are donations of $10 or more to help feed Chicago.

This is my favorite charity and one that really makes a difference to the most vulnerable populations in our great city. Consider that in Cook County, 1 in 6 people - more than 807,000 men, women and children - are food insecure. They don't know when or where they will receive their next meal. When you're hungry and your family is hungry, throw all your ideas about meritocracy and bootstraps out the window. People can't thrive, can't function, when they are in a state of desperation for their most basic needs. So let's all chip in and do our part to help our neighbors, our community and our city get beyond the struggle to merely survive. Together we all can thrive.

Last year through the generosity of all of my facebook and social media friends and family we were able to raise more than $800, which provided hundreds of meals and reminded me just how amazing all you all are. I was totally blown away by the response. So let's do it again. Instead of a shot and a beer put a $20 down for me to buy a weeks worth of food for families that truly need your help. It'll save me the hangover and make you feel like champion.

Sincerely,

Pete Matuszak
