Recipe For Joy ~ Help Feed the Hungry

The winner is Jennifer at Getting Ahead! Congratulations Jennifer!

How would you like to donate 10 meals just by sending someone a FREE e card? This month I have partnered with Kraft Foods to help donate up to 1,000,000 meals to Feeding America. Until December 31st, for each e card that is sent Kraft will donate 10 meals to Feeding America. You don’t have to do anything but send an e card to someone you love, or even someone you don’t love, just send a card to help feed those who might not have 3 meals a day.

There are 11 other bloggers competing against The Happy Housewife to see who can send the most e cards. The prize, $1000 donated to a local Feeding America food bank. I have worked with my local food bank in the past and I would love for them to get $1000, that could serve a lot of Christmas dinners!

Click here to send your e card and start feeding America.

Kraft Foods wants to help kick off this promotion with a gift basket for one of my readers.
