Help FEED US Kids

Did you know that 1 in 5 American children are wondering where they will get their next meal?? Over the summer months up to 1 in 7 will go without meals. Many of us are lucky to have never had hunger touch our lives, but itz still a very real issue in the US.

Today, there is an easy way to help.  My friend and fellow FitFluential Ambassador, Amanda from Run To The Finish is hosting an online blogger bake sale.  She has teamed up with Women’s Health and their RUN 10 FEED 10 program.  The idea is that you run a 10K and 10 children in your community will be fed with the proceeds.  (Amanda has a discount code you may use HERE for registering.)  Another way to help is through donations and who doesn’t love tasty treats?  That’s why Amanda is hosting an online blogger bake sale where 100% of the donations will help feed children in the US.

Feed10BakeSaleWhat is an Online Bake Sale?

  • A whole slew of awesome baked goods will be posted on August 6th.
  • Think of it as a silent auction of sorts
  • 100% of donations go to FEED project to help feed children in the US

HOW IT WORKS – Salivate, bid, donate, eat.

  • Bids will be accepted from August 6th 9 AM EST to August 7th 9AM EST
  • Email with the item name and your bid
  • Highest bid gets the delectable treat mailed to them courtesy of one of the amazing bloggers donating their time, love and ingredients
  • Minimum bid is $15 for each item {it’s for charity!!}
  • Bids must be in $5 increments
  • If you get outbid on one item, try again or try another item!

At the close of the sale, winners will be contacted and asked to donate the specific amount via CrowdRise then their goodies will be shipped. The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.

There will be homemade items from bloggers as well as products from several sponsors available for bidding.  A jar of my Tropical Granola will be up for grabs, but I’ll probably add in some other goodies to whoever has the highest bid!

  1. Oh, this is such a good cause! I will definitely have to bid on something. Plus, I’ve always wanted to taste some of the yummy baked goods I see on so many blogs. 😉
