Thank you for visiting my 2018 Friendsgiving page for No Kid Hungry. Once again I’m embracing the holiday season to try to raise awareness and funds to help eradicate childhood hunger in America. As most of you know I’ve been hosting holiday parties to benefit others for 28 years now. I LOVE how so many of you have included my endeavors in your holiday charitable giving. In conjunction with my annual Friendsgiving meal that I will be hosting in January I am also having a 5K race this year. I'm very excited about this and if anyone is interested in participating please go here to register. https://runsignup.com/Race/GA/Suwanee/Friendsgiving5K

1 in 6 kids in America today face hunger.
WHAT DOES “GOING HUNGRY” MEAN, EXACTLY?

In the United States today, facing hunger can mean different things. Maybe there is no food in the house and no money to buy any. Maybe there’s food, but not enough to last through the end of the month, so parents skip meals, or kids get smaller portions than they need. Whatever their situation, kids who don’t have reliable access to three healthy meals a day are much more likely to face unhealthy, unsuccessful, uncertain futures.

That’s just not acceptable. We can solve this problem and solving it would provide the greatest return on investment.
Another Friendsgiving host said it perfectly.

“Today’s kids are tomorrow’s artists, entrepreneurs,
scientists, business, military and political leaders”

Every $1.00 you donate will connect 10 children with a nutritious meal. That means that last year we helped feed nearly 150,000 children between my two Friendsgivings events. I’d like to surpass that this year. The average cost of a Thanksgiving dinner is $50, it would be wonderful if each of us could share a Thanksgiving (equivalent) with the children of this country that deal with hunger daily. But we’ve been hit hard this year and I understand how many of us have stretched our charitable budgets. So please donate what you can, no amount is too small. I am just very thankful that you took the time to visit my page.

Love and Happy Friendsgiving!

Ann Marie
