Stamp Out Hunger 2010 - Special Article

The articles that are presented to the readers of this blog are usually about food and drinks, however some exceptions can and will happen, and what better reason than a good cause ?
On the 8th of May 2010, letter carriers will collect non-perishable food items donated by individual households, left by the mailbox.
This massive one-day food drive campaign has started in 1993 and since then many starving individuals and families have received precious nourishment.
It's important to emphasize that many people are going through serious difficulties, many of them were working and have recently lost their jobs.
These people are often ashamed to ask for food, just as many of us would probably be.
Implemented by the National Association of Letter Carriers, the 2010 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive will be organized in partnership with Feeding America.
Facebook users can also help the cause by clicking the "Like" button that can be found on the Stamp Out Hunger website, since Campbell's Soup will donate up to one million cans of soup to Feeding America for each fan.
So, if you want to be a fan, be a fan of a good cause.
Don't forget, it's on May 8, 2010 and you can sign up for e-mail or text message alerts to remind you to leave your food donation by your mailbox.
