Ten for Tuesday: Tweeting for No Kid Hungry


UPDATE: A special thanks to everyone who tweeted, shared and encouraged others to tweet today. Moms Fight Hunger. We estimate that at least 131 tweets with #loseforgood were tweeted by the group, which means $131 today alone (translating to more than 1,300 meals). Plus, we also engaged people to do FB shares, likes and repins, as well as new followers for No Kid Hungry. We estimate $150 more dollars from that. 

The tweet campaign that initiated this original post this morning may be done, but tweeting can still help spread awareness, so keep tweeting, and thanks for being involved. 

Original Post: Today one of the easiest things you can do to support No Kid Hungry and help feed children and families in need is tweet! Really, it is that simple. For every tweet using the hashtag #loseforgood and #nokidhungry, Weight Watchers will donate $1 up to $50,000. Please, get your twitter on today!!

$1 can make a big difference - often translating to between $10-13 worth of food, so if you tweet all 10 of these, that is $10, which can have the impact of $100 or more! Consider tweeting with us as part of the Moms Fight Hunger Team! http://teamnokidhungry.org/index.php You can also follow us on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/MomsFightingHunger

    Happy Very Hungry Caterpillar Day: Celebrating 45 Years with Caterpillar and Butterfly Crafts from The Kid's Co-Op

    March 20th is Very Hungry Caterpillar Day with celebrations and programs being held around the world to honor the 45th Anniversary of the book. 


    We love The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so of course we're joining the fun. Plus, my youngest son's blog nickname is Caterpillar, after the book. Just as Wild Thing is my 4 year-old's nickname inspired by Where the Wild Things Are. 

    Today, we'll be doing another Very Hungry Caterpillar Food Drive. We did our first one for Eric Carle's birthday last June and called it a Very Hungry Caterpillar Virtual Food Drive and loved hearing that the virtual part worked, as others were inspired by our online shares and also did VHC-inspired food drives.

    P.S. The Very Hungry Caterpillar Virtual Food Drive post 
    also features 40+ Activities Inspired by the Book, so you'll definitely want to check it out.
    For our VHC-inspired food drive this time, Wild Thing will be helping me write the grocery list for food items to donate as we read the boo…

    {A Season of Giving} 12 Days of Christmas: Celebrating through Giving

    Stacy (the Great) of Kids Stuff World brought to my attention the 31 Days of Service/Giving Calender (and great e-book) from Mom It Forward. 

    Having gotten to know Stacy really well through our joint Moms Fighting Hunger effort during Hunger Action Month, I was all too happen to jump on board and take on 12 Days of Christmas, the action prompt for Dec. 4th.


    The e-book describes the prompt in this way:
    Choose another family in your area to be the recipient of 12 days of gift giving. Try to think of a family that may be struggling financially, emotionally, or with health problems and might need a boost during the holiday season.E ach day, starting December 13, leave a gift anonymously on the doorstep of your chosen family. Involve the kiddos in your secret acts of service. Your gifts can relate to the “12 Days of Christmas” song verses (i.e. partridge in a pear tree, turtle doves, French hens, etc.) but it’s not necessary. Try to choose or provide handmade gifts, drawings or tre…

    Happy Birthday, Eric Carle~We're Doing a Very Hungry Caterpillar Virtual Food Drive to Help Very Hungry Kids! Join Us!!

    Summer is officially here (for half of the world anyway). For many of us, school was out well before the First Day of Summer/Summer Solstice on June 21st. While summer means beaches, pools and vacation for many families, it also means increased food insecurity for others. Food budgets increase for almost everyone in the summer, and families that rely on free and reduced school lunches struggle with the loss of these much needed meals (many schools also provide breakfast to children as well and for many children, their only meals are the ones they eat at school). For some reason, thoughts of the summer struggle against hunger surged to the forefront of my brain every time I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, or overheard Wild Thing reading it to himself or his father or brother (he has the whole book memorized). 

    Finally, it came together, that caterpillar who is so very hungry and needs all of those food items in order to become a beautiful butterfly made me think of all o…
