Turns out I sent it from my school account. Hope they don’t mind! :X (Hooray for Pulaski Tech?)
Anyway, I’m copying my email for you to read here, so you can give. Yes, that’s your call to action, in marketing-speak.
Give.Some.Money. Well, if you can. Even if it’s just a buck.
Can you tell I’m really tired? I may not be at school tomorrow. I’ll either be crashed in my bed, or I’ll be kicked out for using state IT equipment for fundraising purposes. Every day, a new, exciting challenge.
Food Bloggers Helping the Arkansas Rice Depot – a personal appeal from Christie
Hi, friends, foodie and otherwise!
I’m usually one who rails against spam, so forgive me and allow me just one interruption into your mailbox.
You’ve probably heard of Arkansas Rice Depot, but maybe you only have a vague idea of what it does. This organization, started in 1982 by a small group of Arkansans with their own money, sought out to mobilize the resources of our state (most notably at the time, rice) and organize ways to get it to hungry children, seniors and others in our state who need it.
Today, the organization focuses its efforts into four categories: Food for Families, Food for Children, Food for Seniors, and Disaster Relief. The Rice Depot feeds up to 14% of the state’s population. As you can imagine, these are monumental challenges in a tight economy, and they are supported in large part by donations.
This month, several of us food blogger types are asking for your help. Most of us have plenty to eat, and many of us even have the privilege of “playing with our food” by creating fine dishes. It’s time to give back.
If you can even give one dollar, please click this link and do so:
Thank you for your attention, and thanks for helping us food bloggers help our hungry neighbors!
