Giveaway! for Stamp-Out-Hunger


Food / Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Dear people,

I would have loved to give you more warning on this, but I just found out myself.

On Saturday, mail carriers across the country will be collecting food for families in need: the annual “Stamp Out Hunger!” campaign. All you have to do is place a bag of non-perishable pantry items by your mailbox—such as canned meats, fish, soup, juice, vegetables, pasta, cereal, peanut butter, rice… nothing expired, and nothing in glass containers.

I’m giving you two and a half days to prepare; hey, not so bad. In your glory days as a freshman you pulled off excruciating midterms with less time.

To make it a little more fun, I’m offering an incentive. Anyone who participates and lets me know will be entered in a drawing to receive two things: a book of 20 First Class Forever stamps…

20 stamps

…and a $10 Tim Horton’s gift card! Can I hear a scream or two??

TH card

Leave a comment saying you’re in, and I’ll enter you to win. If you can’t pull it off by Saturday, but pledge to deliver your donation to a local food pantry within a week, that works for me! (You do understand that I’m bribing you into giving? Good. I thought so.)

Spread the word. Spread the joy. Spread the food.

Success!
Shari

AAAAHHHHH!!! (Scream for coffee) I already have my start-of-a-pile on my counter and intended to look up if expired items were ok and consistently forgot to check:( so thank you! All the better if I get some coffee and stamps out of it!

Yes. {screaming}
I’m in.
Thanks for reminding me of the food drive. It was off my radar and I haven’t seen a memo in my mailbox yet. I should be able to remember though since it is always right around my husband’s birthday.

Do we get multiple entries for multiple comments?? 🙂

Is this girl remembering that it’s her moral obligation to provide her aging mother with the staples of life…….. uh, the stamps would come in handy too, but. ……….
