As many of you know, a few years ago, I started making cheesecakes for a few friends during the holiday season. One thing evolved into another, and before I knew it, I was baking cheesecakes as part of a joint effort with Feeding America. Goal: Eradicate hunger and food insecurity in the United States of America.
My deepest gratitude to all of you who have contributed to this campaign in the past few years. You are an invaluable asset to our American communities in need. I would also like to highlight two of my most supportive donors, who are not only incredibly generous, but who have adopted Feeding America into their giving routine periodically throughout the year, since the birth of this campaign: Mrs. Jan Johnson and Mr. Colin Johnson - sincere thanks to you, from the bottom of my heart!
For those of you who would like to make a generous donation to Feeding America this year, kindly do so, right here on this page. Simply click DONATE NOW, above the goal meter. In appreciation, I would love to bake a fresh pumpkin cheesecake for you. (But don't worry, you can still donate, even if you are not into cheesecake, haha!) And for those of you who are far away, I guess we will have to share our cheesecake virtually!
Over the past few years, many of you have thanked me for introducing you to Feeding America, a stellar charitable organization. You continue to contribute annually, and your generosity has gone far beyond even this small campaign of mine. If you are so inclined, please consider making your donation here on this page, so that we can reach our new donation goal together. I would love to see us reach, and maybe even surpass, $25,000 dollars this year. All contributions are processed in the same way, are tax-deductible, and go 100% towards Feeding America's common goal.
(If you make a donation, please forward your receipt to me, so that I can also track it: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Our achievement and progress as a community are dependant on ensuring that all people are healthy, and equipped with the opportunity to succeed. An astonishing number of Americans do not know where their next meal will come from. Millions of children will suffer, in a multitude of ways, due to poor nutrition. This solvable crisis will have decades of impact on our society.
I highly encourage you to peruse the Feeding America website. It displays the multi-faceted nature of this epidemic, and also relates detailed, staggering statistics. Learn about the programs Feeding America has developed, based on the specific needs of individual communities. Charity Navigator has awarded Feeding America 4/4 stars. 98% of your donation goes directly to those in need.
I hope you will join me in helping the cause of eliminating food insecurity. Simply click DONATE NOW, above the goal meter, RIGHT HERE ON THIS PAGE!
