Loans By Kathy: Share Our Strength DINE OUT Starts Sept

Share Our Strength DINE OUT Starts Sept

For those that have followed my blogs, you know that I have been an avid supporter of the Share Our Strength organization.   The sole purpose of this group is to end childhood hunger in the US.  Recent statistics state that 1 in 5 children don't know when they will have their next meal.  For a country that has so much, this statistic just breaks my heart.  

This month is the DINE OUT event.  Below are the step by step instructions.  I am begging you to help our casue.

Dine Out For No Kid Hungry in 4 Easy Steps

Every September, Share Our Strength's Dine Out For No Kid Hungry brings together thousands of restaurants and their customers to raise funds for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. This year, there are more than 8,000 restaurants to choose from.

    1. Find participating restaurants and check out their No Kid Hungry promotions. HINT: Click each restaurant's location for their details.
    2. Invite your favorite people to join you at your restaurants of choice.
    3. Download 'Thank You' cards to give the manager or your server when you dine out.
    4. Share the experience and spread the word, including the September 17 twEAT OUT.

Repeat steps 1-4 all week long.

As states are forced to cut back many programs, it is important that private citizens step up to the plate to help those who are in need... especially our children.

Hi Kathy -- great idea and very easy-to-use website for restaurant information by zip code.

Joan, I hope you will join the cause.

Michael, they do make it easy.

That statistic is unbelievable. Thanks for sharingthe step-by-step ways to help. I will definitely be sharing this information in my area.

This is a great idea for a fundraiser and I love that you can download a Thank You card for someone at the restaurant.  Thanks for sharing!

Kathy the hunger situation has gotten worst, so every bit of help is so important.

Every little bit does indeed help and so many are in need!

What a great idea!  And, you get to eat so kids won't go hungry.  That pains me that children don't have enough to eat.

Posted by Ron Marshall, Birdhouse Builder Extraordinaire (Marshall Enterprises) over 6 years ago

Great idea, and giving a little extra for the hungry would be a great idea, too!  I know that the Salvation Army asks for donations around Thanksgiving, too, as do the "missions" around here.  Those kids should never have to go to school or sleep hungry.

Posted by Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc. (Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc.) over 6 years ago

Jennifer, it is wonderful to have the support of so many companies.

Ron, yes it is!

Don, the biggest need is when those children are not in school!

Posted by Kathy Sheehan, Senior Loan Officer (Bay Equity, LLC 770-634-4021) over 6 years ago

This sounds like an important organization with a real need to help out!

Posted by Eileen Hsu, LICENSED REAL ESTATE SALESPERSON (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) over 6 years ago

What terrible statistics! I have heard of this organization before. Kudos to you for sharing this with others!

Kathy I wish I had seen this from day one.  We eat out a lot..too much and will certainly take part in this event.  NO child should go to bed hungry in our great country!  I checked the link and there are numerous places in the Albuquerque area that are participating and now so will we be.... Thank you!

Posted by John McCormack, CRS, Honesty, Integrity, Results, Experienced. HIRE Me! (Albuquerque Homes Realty) over 6 years ago

John, glad to have you on the team!  Yes this is a worthy cause.  It truly breaks my heart to think that a child is allowed to go hunger in this country.
