Because Nothing's Funny About Hunger

It's pretty unbelievable: There are Americans going to bed hungry, every single night.
I ask you to consider donating whatever you can afford to Feeding America (formerly Second Harvest), a national food bank with 200 member banks across the country. This is the official recipient organization of the project. Every dollar you contribute provides seven meals or 10 pounds of food. A $25 gift provides 75 meals. If each of us who has a blog writes something on April 1 and ask our readers to contribute, imagine the difference we can make in our communities.
April Food Day was begun by bloggers Easy & Elegant Life and Pigtown*Design. Please donate what you can, they really appreciate even one dollar!
