Help Us Donate $2,500!


Ready?  Set?  Go!

You all have been so generous this year with your stories, support and encouragement, we want to pass this generosity on to some of your favorite organizations!

For the first 25 people who provide a recommendation in the comments below, we will donate $100 to YOUR recommended organization!

 

What's the catch?

 

There is none!

 

Based on your recommendations, we will give away $2,500!

 

The only requirements are:

  • It needs to be a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
  • It should be an organization that is doing something to encourage healthy eating!

 

So, act fast!

Please provide your recommendation in the comments section below:

  • If you know the EIN # (employer identification number), that would be helpful (you can quickly find it using the GuideStar search engine).  If you don't have it (or don't have time to look it up), feel free to go ahead and reserve your spot, and then you can come back and update it with the EIN.
  • If you want us to mention your name in the gift, please let us know.
  • If you want the gift to be in memory or in honor of someone, please include this info in your comment.

 

Why are we doing this?

Your stories continue to inspire us and we want to give back and help you support charitable organizations that are advancing the mission of healthy and delicious food.  You are probably involved with organizations in your community who are doing great things to help people eat healthfully and we want to honor you by helping to support those organizations.

While $100 isn't life-changing, we all know that these organizations welcome any and all support and, if this is successful, maybe we will consider increasing the amount in the future.

 

Together we can make a difference!

 

Thank you so much for all you do and for helping advance the mission throughout all of our local communities to...

keep it simple and EAT REAL!

  3. I am nominating Housing Resources Inc. 420 E Alcott., Kalamazoo, MI

  4. Five years on, I still wonder if directly soliciting financial assistance will ever feel comfortable. Such discomfort is likely a show of my own prideful weakness. Swallow that pride I shall. In multiple ways your generosity and friendship has blessed us and we are so very grateful for the gifts you share… for the obvious reasons of funding our needs, but even more so by the way your gifts represent an ongoing confidence you have in us and in our ministry. Please consider contributing to:
    Kid Power Cares, Inc.
    2317 N. Cardinal Drive
    Wichita, KS 67204
    EIN 45-2673368

    Merry Christmas!!!
