Ending the Hunger

This is my first blog post for 2013. It isn't about resolutions or anything like that. It's about something that I think is important. Too often we bitch about how terrible the world can be. But we can do things to make it better. It doesn't have to be anything huge. Over the past year I started donating to our local foodbank on a regular basis. It's just been a couple of items dropped in the box at the local supermarket. Over the holidays me and the hubby also did a couple of cash donations. Again, it wasn't anything huge since we're on a tight budget ourselves. But giving what we could did give us a sense we were doing something helpful.
The foodbank hits home for me. I've never had to use it, but I've had close friends in the past who have. The fact is that hunger is all around us and closer than you may think. Usually after the holidays the foodstocks are down at most foodbanks. Consider a donation no matter how small. A little help can go further than you think.
I'll step off my soap box now.
Happy New Year,
