Helping fight hunger one comment at a time.

Today Minnesota Viking Bernard Berrian issued a challenge to Mn. A challenge to fight hunger.

Between November 24 and Christmas this year, Bernard will match all gifts up to $5,000 to put meals on the tables of children and their families.

I believe this is being organized along with Second Harvest Heartland. From the Second Harvest website:

“For each $1 donated, Second Harvest Heartland¬†will distribute more than $9 worth of grocery products to those in need in our communities.¬†96% of each dollar of revenue goes directly to our programs.”

That sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Just yesterday the wife and I were discussing donating food or money to a charity for the holidays.

So here’s the scoop, for each comment that this post gets I’ll be donating $1 to Berrian’s challenge. Since Mr.Berrian will match each dollar I give, Second Harvest will turn those two dollars into 18 dollars worth of food.

Think about it, 18$ worth of food per comment.

What do you say?
