In July 2015, my best friend and I started a charity called Be the Change, founded on the simple idea that no family should ever have to go hungry, especially during the holidays.
In just three months, with the help of our family, friends, and neighbors who donated food, money, and their own free time, we were able to provide an ENTIRE WEEK’S worth of food for 25 families in the San Fernando Valley!
This year, we have set our goals even higher—to provide 100 families with enough food for them to be able to enjoy a week’s worth of home cooked meals this Thanksgiving.
With an estimated weekly food cost of $75, we need to raise $7,500. We know this goal is ambitious, but with your help, we also know it’s achievable.
Will you help us Be the Change in these families’ lives? Any donation, big or small, can make a profound impact on families in need.
If you’re not able to donate money, please consider donating food or your time. For more information, visit our official website, www.dontbethesame.com.
As Mahatma Gandhi said, "Be the change you wish to see in the world".
