Will You Be A Voice for the 16.1 Million Voiceless?

by sexythinker

This week, during Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, we have an opportunity to truly be the change – an opportunity to use our collective “Klout,” “Kred,” Reach, and Influence to give a voice to the 16.1 million children in America who are hungry.

In 2011, the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry raised over 2.4 million dollars with the online assistance of over 2,000 members of Team No Kid Hungry.  We sent out over 10,000 Tweets encouraging friends, family, and complete strangers to dine out at one of the 5,000 participating restaurants. This year with over 8,000 participating restaurants – we’re going to need more than 10,000 tweets and 93 million impressions – in fact, we’re going to need double that!

It’s a big goal, and not only are we going to do it – we’re going to have some fun along the way.

Just in time for the Dine Out, we’re rolling out the official Team No Kid Hungry iPhone App (can only download from your iPhone)! If you’re not reading this from an iPhone, here is the web versionhttp://www.teamnokidhungry.org. This app will not only help us reach our goal and continue to grow the movement, it will keep us connected throughout the year and keep us united on focused actions to end childhood hunger.

The app will be the perfect place to join our annual “TwEAT Out” for the Dine Out For No Kid Hungry on Monday, September 17th, to earn points, badges, and even rewards for completing “missions” the week of the Dine Out (Sunday, September 16th – Saturday, September 23rd), and stay connected year-round to stay on top of the leaderboard as one of our top Hunger Heroes.

Not an iPhone user?  Don’t worry, you can still join in the fun by visiting http://www.teamnokidhungry.orgfrom any mobile device with an internet connection.

We can’t wait to see all of you become Hunger Heroes! Download the app now! http://www.teamnokidhungry.org/app. App must be downloaded directly from your mobile device.

SAVE THE DATE: June 21st TwEAT OUT Use Your Online Influence For Good. #NoKidHungry

by sexythinker

(VIDEO ABOVE) News Anchor Scott Pelley presented an excerpt from a recent 60 Minutes segment “Hard Times Generation:  Homeless Kids” at a Share Our Strength fundraising dinner. At the dinner Scott showed a video where he went to the Castlebury Middle School in Seminole County, Florida and spoke directly to students about their experiences with hunger.

1 in 4 children in U.S. will face hunger this year. Without the security of knowing where their next meal will come from, these children lack the energy to learn, grow and thrive. Share Our Strength is an organization committed to ending childhood hunger in America. The money raised through Share Our Strength’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry September 18-21, 2011 will connect kids with nutritious food where they live, learn and play.

Last year, many of us joined together to support Share Our Strength’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. Over 1,000 people spread the word online posting over 10,000 tweets about the campaign in just one week. Those 1,000 contributors helped Share Our Strength and the restaurant industry increase donations by 108%over the last year raising over 1.5 million dollars in 1 week.

This year, the goal is 3 million dollars and to start we need to rally over 5,000 restaurant locations to participate in the program. Now it’s time to rally restaurants around the cause.

Be a part of our “Online Be The Change Team”for this cause:

1.  Save the date – June 21st and participate in Share Our Strength’s online “TwEAT OUT”(tweet-a-thon) On May 4, 2011, we asked our social media followers to help us reach our goal by asking their favorite restaurants to be a part of this national event. Here’s what happened.. On June 21st we’ll be tweeting using this hashtag #NoKidHungry and engaging on Facebook as well. Subscribe here to get more details as we get closer to the event.

2. Add your voice to the national movement of over 41,000 people committed to ending childhood hunger in America by 2015 and Take The No Kid Hungry Pledge

Thank you for using your online influence for good. Let’s go make the world a better place.

Authentically,
