Creating Aid

In this day and age, it’s easy to lose hope and to feel helpless.  Last night I was reminded that a group of people who care, working together, can make a difference and maybe even save lives. 

A group of 39 MN bloggers and I met to pack meals for Feed My Starving Children.  We mixed together soybeans, chicken-flavored vitamins, vegetables and rice in small plastic bags to be sent to another country, possibly Haiti, to feed people desperate for the nutrients we take for granted.  Together, less than an hour, our group, along with three or four others, packed 13,824 meals:  enough food to feed 38 people for a year.  It is astonishing that so little effort can change, and possibly even save, so many lives.  To learn more about Feed My Starving Children and how you can help, visit their website.
