Lose Weight, Fight Hunger

Weight Watchers is starting their Lose For Good Campaign again this fall -- get healthy and help fight hunger.

Every pound you lose equals a world of good

From August 30 through October 17 Weight Watchers will donate up to $1 million to feed children and families who need it. Learn more on the Lose For Good website.

I'll be participating so let's cheer each other along and do a world of good!

Wanna do your own food drive to fight hunger in your area? Here are some ideas on how to collect food and tie it to crafting:

  • Host a crop at your house. Ask participants to each bring a canned good to your crop.
  • Ask your local scrapbook or crafting store if you can set up a food donation box in their store. They can promote your food drive via their website and newsletter.
  • Set up a swap box at your local scrapbook store, a retreat, or at your own crop night--crafters can "purchase" items from the swap box with a canned food item.
  • For more ideas, check out Scrapbook Royalty's Feeding Our Communities effort, in conjunction with the Fiskateers, earlier this year.
Just passing along a little charity info for ya!
