Fall FEED-Raiser

As you may or may not know… I have been named a FEED Ambassador as a part of FEED Projects.  As a FEED Ambassador, it is my duty to create fundraisers or events that aim to support our local food pantries, create hunger awareness or raise money for The FEED Foundation.

I decided to support The FEED Foundation for my first event!  I joined forces with Jersey’s Pub and Grub Downtown to offer 5 drinks and a $5 donation to The FEED Foundation.  How great, right!?  I’ll be there with my FEED 10 shirt on and FEED 1 bag in tow.  Not only are they super fashionable, but both of these products support school meals for hungry children around the world.  Why school meals?  Because studies show that when children can rely on a nutritious meal, they are more likely to be sent to school rather than working to earn money for their families.

Join me at Jerseys Downtown from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m on Saturday, November 3rd to support The FEED Foundation and party for a cause!

Marion – East Cedar Rapids Rotary Club

Today I had the honor of presenting at the Marion – East Cedar Rapids Rotary club.  To be completely honest, I did not know much about Rotary before I was invited to speak with their group early this Spring.  In addition to the Rotary club members, today’s meeting was attended by college students who were involved in a Cedar Rapids young leadership group who were learning about various organizations in the Cedar Rapids area.  Since there were quite a few new faces in attendance, the president, Nick Glew, gave a high level overview of Rotary International and how local Rotary clubs service our community.

Here is a video explaining what Rotary International is and what their mission is across the world:

This is a great organization and I am honored that I was able to share CharitableConnections with their members, as well as the guests in attendance at today’s meeting.  Please consider reaching out to your local Rotary clubs to find out how they play a role in your community.
