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 helping people be as healthy as possible.  You are probably involved with organizations in your community who are doing great things to help people live 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, especially in the environment we are currently in.

 

Together we can make a difference!

 

THANK YOU so much for all you do and for helping advance our mission throughout all of our local communities to encourage healthy lifestyles.

And, thank you for all you do help others to keep it simple and EAT REAL!

Happy Thanksgiving!
