Help my birthday wish: a hunger free Merced

Update: the birthday competition is over, but the link and fundraiser is still live. Please donate if you can. The need for our services has never been greater.

Hi Friends!

Happy New Year! I’m one year older on January 8th. Would you help me raise money for some creative anti-hunger programs in my city -- Merced, CA? Our Pop-Up People's Pantry, the People's Fridge and the 18th St. People's Garden feeds hundreds of families every week and are growing every day. This cool video shows some of our work  (Thanks to the Pollination Project for the video.)

Since COVID the number of families unable to feed their children has exploded. Merced County statistics show about 1 out of 3 children are going to bed with some degree of hunger. Our local surveys in poor neighborhoods see closer to 1 out of 2 children hungry.

Thanks in advance for your support. 100% funds go to the United Way of Merced County to support these local projects. Whether $5 or $500, you can be sure we’ll use it wisely!

Best wishes! Thank you for dough-nating and peas feel free to share with your friend. I just had to include some food puns.
