The fastest way to feed 60 people

feeding america

If you are at all like me, then you have randomly donated a nominal amount of money a time or two. I usually do this when someone randomly asks for a donation, and I feel satisfaction in helping their cause. But I never really consider what the money actually does for the organization that I donate it to. In fact, honestly, at times I don't even care. It's not that I'm loose with money. It's just that I usually am donating the money to support a friend's cause.

The other day I made a random donation to a charity, and didn't really think twice about it. That was until I received a call from the charity's director of development. She said that my donation fed 6 people for every $1 that I donated. The number of meals that I funded with that random donation was staggering. I hadn't felt that good about "helping" an organization in a really long time. If I was able to constantly quantify my charitable contributions, then I am convinced I would give more.

So here is what I'm asking you to do. Quantify your help. Donate at least $10 to this charity (Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana), and know that for every dollar you give, you will feed 6 people. That way when you get home tonight, and your loved ones ask you how your day was you can say, "I fed 60 people today, and it felt great!"
