Instead of fighting the crowds at the mall or paying through the teeth for overnight shipping, how about giving one of these gifts that give back? You don’t even have to wrap them (just print off the gift card and you’re done!). Toys will break and clothes will go…

How to Feed the World

Food for the Hungry, Life October 16, 2013

Today is World Food Day.  A day to not only open our eyes to the issue of chronic hunger, but a day to take a stand against it. I can’t feed the world. But I can feed Chereka. I can’t feed the world. But I can feed Reymart. I can’t feed the world. But I can choose to partner with an organization that creates a sustainable future for those who…

Food for the Hungry, Life August 7, 2013

The personal benefits of child sponsorship

Food for the Hungry March 12, 2013

I always knew it would be rewarding to sponsor children.  I mean, how can it not be?  Through Food for the Hungry, we are helping Chereka (Ethiopia) and Reymart (Philippines) go to school, stay with their families, get medical care, the list goes on and on.  But what I didn’t realize was just how much our family would benefit in the process. Through letters, photos and drawings, conversations are started.…

Food for the Hungry January 28, 2013

Remember that time I went to Ethiopia and met my sponsor child Chereka? Gosh I love her. Another group of Food for the Hungry bloggers is now in Bangladesh, and they are meeting their sponsor children today.  I’m so jealous excited for them and can’t wait to hear about their experiences.  That’s why I’m hopping on the Twitter chat tonight to talk with them LIVE about their trip to Bangladesh so far.…

We are the same

Food for the Hungry January 10, 2013

The flu hit Joe and Leila pretty hard this week.  The toughest part of the day has been when it’s time for them to fall asleep.  Between the aching, coughing and sniffling, they just can’t seem to get comfortable.  I’ve been lying down next to Leila to help her calm down and fall asleep.  Yesterday I was resting next to her, eyes closed, and BAM, I was in Ethiopia, in…
