This year our #SHRM14 blogger crew is looking to “Strike Out Hunger” and we need your help! You may recall that last year we had a super fun game of kickball for our fundraiser (no doubt I’m still bitter that the green team got shafted), but this year we are taking to the lanes for a fundraiser Big Lebowski style. You may be asking what that means to you? Two things- 1) you can join us and 2)you can donate from wherever you’re reading this. There is limited space and the event is this Sunday (I know, I’m sooo last-minute), but consider helping out this worthy cause!
Why No Kid Hungry?
This year, more than 16 million children in America will face hunger. That’s one in five. Share our Strength is working to connect hungry kids with the food they need to grow and thrive. We’re doing our part to connect kids to the healthy food they need every day. Every dollar we raise will make a huge impact for kids. In fact, just $1 can help connect a child with 10 meals.
That’s huge! Please be a part of this with us. I cannot even begin to tell you the impact you will have on these children!
Who sponsors this event?
The event is sponsored by Dovetail Software and Dice.com. They have not only helped with providing the event but are also kicking in some sweet items for our silent auction. We are honored and appreciative to have them on our side once again! Last year we topped $11,000 in donations. We’d like to see that number go up!
We can only top that number if you get involved and donate! Invite your friends to donate, we know you have a lot of friends! This event is going to be a lot of fun, and you have some control over how fun it can get. Dwane has promised this to anyone who wants to accept:
And since our love for sport and helping others is nearly matched by our love for playing dress up, we are taking the inspiration for the theme from one of the greatest bowling movies ever, The Big Lebowski. And since it is a costume party, and we have little to no shame when it comes to NKH, for any donations over $500 we will re-enact a scene of your choosing from the film, and post it online for the world to see.
There you have it folks, now are you going to get involved? Click here to donate to our team!
