Squint just the right way and you’ll see your friends Alison and Shannon on the back of this Honey Nut Cheerios box. But, this really isn’t about us. In August, many of you helped support the ShopRite Partners in Caring and General Mills campaign “Blog it Forward to Fight Hunger.”
The campaign was a success and 3,000 boxes of cheerios were donated to people in need. Now, special edition boxes have been created to thank the bloggers and their readers who helped out. If you live in MD, NJ, NY, DE, PA or CT, you can find them in your local ShopRite store this week.
Thank you, thank you for helping. Especially with the earthquake in Haiti, Alison and I have been talking and thinking a lot about how lucky many of us are, and how we can do more to help others.
Following on the last campaign, ShopRite is now trying to help those who need food through “Expressions of Hunger.” The contest invites regular people to creatively express themselves through poetry, art, storytelling, or music, about the issue of hunger. The contest is open through March 1, 2010, and more information can be found at http://www.expressionsofhunger.com/. We hope you’ll check it out.
