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.
