Blessings in a Backpack Feeds Hungry Kids During the Weekends

| January 23, 2013

blessings in a backpackBlessings in a Backpack is having a fundraising rummage sale this Saturday, January 26, 8am to 2pm, at the Bloom Elementary School (see map below). Money raised will be used to purchase food to be sent home with impoverished kids over the weekends. UPDATE: If donating online be sure to mention Bloom Elementary Tucson so your money stays local!

There is no shortage of data showing that hungry kids can’t learn, can’t focus, and generally have much poorer chance of success than well-nourished kids. Blessings in a Backpack manage to feed a child for 38 weekends on $80 – no small miracle in itself.

I can’t imagine living my life as a child in hunger. Help this charity, named Charity of the Year for 2012 by People Magazine’s First Help Feed a Child Campaign by coming out and supporting the rummage sale or donating online, and give them a “Like” on Facebook.
