A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

Do you have a story to tell?

I actually saw a blurb commercial about this at YouTube. Consequently I decided to click over to the site and check it out. It's a great idea and an interesting one. If you don't have your own story to tell maybe you want to link and share a story that you've read elsewhere from out there in the world. The explanation of a sharing story is available on the web site.

The great thing about this story sharing is that COUNTRY CROCK is donating meals** to
America's Second Harvest for each story shared. They have a goal of collecting one million stories by Thanksgiving. So let's see if we can help them out. Is there a story in your archives that will work? A story you know and have read out there somewhere? Go post it and help feed some families in need.

Do you know how many children right here in America are going to bed tonight with empty bellies? Too many. You can read more about hunger in America here. You're blogging and writing already so go on...check it out. Share a story.

**Meals are used for illustrative purposes only. For every dollar donated, America's Second Harvest
secures and distributes 20 pounds of food and grocery products, such as cereal, fruit, bath soap and
diapers. According to the USDA Thrifty Food Plan, an average meal is 1.28 pounds of food.
Country Crock® will match donations to provide up to one million meals.

Mailyn, I thought there might be some people who had a story they could share. It sounds like a great idea. to raise awareness about hunger in the U.S. Although I don't believe Country Crock is completely altruistic they want people to buy their product to be sure, but I applaud any time corporate America does something charitable.

Next I expect to hear them sharing the stories in their commercials on TV. Really, don't you think that's what's next? In the Fall the month or so before Thanksgiving? It's TV sweeps too. ::shrugs:: It's just my little conspiracy theory.

In the meantime the stories can help feed people.

You're right they are only doing it for the brownie points but it's still pretty awesome thing. Just think if all other megazillionaire companies would decide to do something like this. Unfortunately most of them ask their employees to give instead and then do a measly match.
