For a good cause, are you ready!

Kraft First Taste is an email I get regularly and normally I am collecting recipes to feed the 5 of us. They are a good site to keep looking at and here is a paragraph from an email they sent me. I think it is such a good idea and we all have a good handful of people we could send some e-cards too.

Here it is:

First Taste members have early access to the Recipe for Joy program, so you can be among the first to experience the joy of giving and spread the word about it. Copy and paste this URL into your browser: and send a FREE holiday e-card today and every day through December 31, 2009!

Today and every day through December 31, 2009!

For more information about Feeding America, copy and paste this URL into your browser:

*Meals are used for illustrative purposes only. Kraft Foods has set a goal of donating the monetary equivalent of 10 meals for each e-card sent, up to a cap of one million meals. Feeding America's meal conversion is effective until 6/30/10.

So there it is, I hope you can do this and help many that may be needing the help. Seems like a good idea though I think our methods of food distribution could be better. Happy Holidays everyone!

Are you still able to go to college?

I have a found a site that might help you out during this downturn in the economy. I might be using it since I may qualify for the "moms going back to school" money that Obama set aside ??!!

You can rent your textbooks and it could save you many dollars. Check it out and see if it fits your pocketbook. I will definitely consider it when and if I get to return to school and need some textbooks.

I hope any that desire can attend college and get that degree that could open doors for you to earn your way in the world.

Do you have a loved one on Chemo?

I have found another site of interest I think. If you have someone one chemo for cancer treatment, this site has connections to arrange for house cleaning and maid service. It is a foundation so it is trustworthy and very noble. All that is needed is a fax from the doctor to this foundation for your friend, family member or co worker to get the service for free. Check it out and pass it along to all those that may have need of it.

There are several tabs to check out the doings of this organization, I like the page where they tell you who is handling all the management details. I hope this helps since a clean and tidy environment can lend itself to healing.

Food for those that need it!

I have found a video you can go and view and for each view money is given so that Kraft and its partners can provide food to those that really need it.

I have been fortunate to have been on the receiving end of food donations since I lost my job and the fire we had a few years ago. The food given is of good quality and much appreciated since it allows us to have food we like longer during the month. Tough to eat when it is not what you are used to though when hungry you eat to keep the growlies away for sure. I hope none of you are in this situation but if you are help is out there. View the video and as they say share it with family, friends and coworkers. Share my blog for a quick link to get to it or save it yourself to go and view it often to help them along.
