GAP Give and Get Program is Here! Enjoy 30% Off!!!

The GAP Give and Get Program is here again...YAY!!! From March 17-20 customers receive a 30% shopping discount and 5% of the purchases go to a non-profit which I have chosen. This year I have picked Feeding America, a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, which in turn support 61,000 charitable feeding agencies in every community across the country. They provide food to 37 million people each year. Their goal is simple: provide enough food to the nation’s charitable feeding system so that any person in our country who wants a meal can have one.

I chose Feeding America as my charity after watching Children without a home: a 60 Minutes story the other night. This 60 Minutes news introduction prefaced the story of Orlando families that found themselves homeless due to unemployment over the last few years, and it is quite honestly heart wrenching to watch. It truly breaks my heart to think of all the children in my local area and in the entire United States that are going to bed hungry. They are in a nation where there is an over abundance of food, yet they have nothing. The only meal some of them get is the one they eat at school. This is just not acceptable in my opinion, so I have chosen Feeding America to try and help them in some way.

"With 1 in 4 children now struggling with hunger, never in the history of Feeding America has hunger-relief been of so much importance. Nearly 14 million children rely on our network for the nutritious food they need during tough times. Our Kids Cafes and BackPack Programs help get food to those children that need it the most. We hope to one day serve all children struggling with hunger, to tend to those whose lives have changed so much over the last few years." (Information taken from the Feeding America blog.)
