Family-to-Family Crisis solution
My husband and I, along with 5 other families, recently started a local chapter of Family-to-Family. Yesterday I received the following email from the founder of the organization:

FAMILY-TO-FAMILY NEEDS YOUR HELP!

There’s a crisis at our nation’s food banks and F-to-F wants to help.

Our friends at America’s Second Harvest tell us that their member food banks across the United States are reporting huge increases in the numbers of families coming forward in need of emergency food supplies. At the same time food donations are way down so less food is available to give away. Many food pantries are turning people away altogether, and many others are giving out less food to each person who comes in. People are going hungry.

PLEASE HELP US HELP BY PASSING THIS EMAIL ON TO EVERYONE ON YOUR EMAIL LIST!

Family-to-Family and the Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger have come up with a “crisis solution” to help these families… The Family-to-Family Hunger Relief Registry... a cyber-adoption program where you and your family will be linked to a family in one of the four desperately poor communities listed on our website’s cyber sponsorship page. If you are able to sponsor a family in need of help for one year ($25 per month), please click here Family-to-Family | Sponsor A Family to join our “cyber-sponsorship” program. 100% of your monthly contribution (minus Paypal’s fee of about .80 cents) will be used to purchase groceries every month for 12 months for “your” family.

In an effort to make an immediate impact, please forward this email to your own email list, or to anyone blogging… so that we can, as an extended, grassroots, cyber-community, help feed hungry American families.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL
