simply give.

I have a new way for you to save the world this week, and it's super easy! All you have to do is go to Meijer's to do your normal weekly shopping, and purchase a $10 Meijer food pantry card. These are then converted into Meijer gift cards and given to one of two hundred food pantries they are working with. 

AND if you donate between September 2-8 (RIGHT NOW!), Meijer will give double every donation you give! So, if you give $10, Meijer gives $20! This wonderful program is rightfully named Simply Give, it's just so simple!

Here is what the CEO had to say about it:

“Hunger is a problem that continues to grow in all of our communities. This contribution shows our commitment to hunger relief in the Midwest and applauds the continued generosity our customers and team members have shown their neighbors.”
-CEO Hank Meijer (
This year's $1 million donation equals six million meals, and brings the programs total contribution since 2008 to $4 million (or twenty four million meals). Pretty great, right? Simply give!

Heading to the east side this weekend to see Ashleigh...let me know if you still need to give me your school supplies!

Be the change. Make the difference.
