Last week I made THIS POST about Backpack Buddies, a program that puts food in the hands of kids who might not otherwise be eating well (or sometimes at all) on the weekends. One of the points I failed to mention in my post is that a large part of the program deals with kids helping kids, like Sebastian in the video below who organizes snack sales at his private school and in turn feeds 100 inner city school kids every month. This kid is so, so awesome.
The Foundation is holding a fundraiser party called Halloween for Hunger tomorrow, Thursday October 30th at 9PM at the Portside Pub which they’re turning into a haunted pirate ship and offering entry by donation. Anyone who donates $20 or more will get a free beer and either a sailor hat, pirate hat, or an eye patch to keep ye olde ghost pirates at bay!
