february blog for food update

As you may know, over 40 Oregon bloggers have been posting about Blog for Food to help raise funds for the Oregon Food Bank. In this economy so many foodbanks are struggling and we are trying to help our local banks which serve over 13 counties.

We have a running total now: as of last Friday, $1210 has been donated to the OFB (Oregon Food Bank) directly as a result of our efforts. Every $12 is enough for the OFB to collect and distribute an Emergency Food Box, which feeds a family of four for 3-5 days. $1210 represents over 100 food boxes. This is in addition to all the food that has been dropped off to various locations. Throughout the month many bloggers have joined us, and many businesses have volunteered their services as a collection site for those wanting to donate food. Thank you everyone!

.......Just to sweeten the deal, through Feb. 28th, Gilt Club is offering a free appetizer to anyone who brings in a donation to the Oregon Food Bank. All they ask is that you keep it to "one per party per visit" and don't abuse the offer, since it is for charity.......

This Saturday will be the last day of our combined efforts and we'd like to end on a high note! So if you feel so compelled please feel free to donate, any amount is welcome, and it all adds up to a good cause.

Enjoy!

That is great what you are doing! I wish we could create a comprehensive map of bloggers around the world who are working to fight hunger. I want to find someone who is good with that computer stuff...that way, people can click on their area and find out how to help out a project/fundraiser. Thanks! (Leaving this comment gave me a great-I think-idea) : )
