I could not be more excited for some summer fun after the long, grueling winter we had. And while I’m all for throwing out the strict routines in the summer, I also like to take the opportunity to incorporate some new things into our days that are easier when things are more laid-back. One thing I try to focus on in the summer is finding ways to serve my community and volunteer or help others. Signing up for an awareness walk to raise money for a cause, taking part in a park clean-up day, helping those in need — there are so many ways to do something to help others. That’s why I’m excited to be partnering with Gold Peak® Tea, because they are partnering with Feeding America to help fight hunger in the US with their Gold Peak Fights Hunger Initiative.
I strongly believe that no one should go hungry, and when you have plenty of food yourself that the right thing to do is share with those who don’t. One great way to support people that don’t have enough food for themselves or their families is to donate to your local food bank. While our summer may be full of fun activities, for many kids summer is a time filled with a lot of hungry days, because they don’t get their school meals. So summer is a critical time to donate to food banks. You can do that by donating money, food, or your time.
A great way to get your friends and family involved is by hosting a backyard BBQ and asking each of your guests to bring non-perishables to donate to your local food bank. You can also set up a Facebook event to encourage people to donate to their local food bank even if they can’t attend or live in a different part of the country. You could set up an ‘eliminate summer hunger challenge’ and invite family and friends to join — make it a competition and see who can gather up the most donations for your food bank. There are so many fun ways to get involved and help others!
Gold Peak Tea is getting in on the fight — they have teamed up with Feeding America on an initiative to stop hunger. Now through 6/30/2018 Gold Peak will direct $1 to Feeding America through a special texting campaign. Readers can also support their own local banks, where ten food banks will be selected to receive a $1,000 donation at the end of the voting period! That all means that you have yet another way to help. Text “GIVE” to 26739 and Gold Peak will donate a $1 to Feeding America. Every $1 donated provides at least 10 meals to people and families in need. You literally could provide someone with ten meals by sending a single text. Go here to learn more about Gold Peak’s initiative and where one can support their local food bank for a chance to receive a $1,000 donation from Gold Peak. And head to Target to pick up some Gold Peak Tea for that summer BBQ — I always love supporting companies who give back.
