Today (well, technically tomorrow) is April Food Day - a no fooling around day for bloggers and FOB's (friends of bloggers) to get together to say that we're here for one another and for those in our own backyards who are in need of some help. Having to choose between food and heat is not a choice anyone should have to make and our hearts go out to those who on a daily basis are making that choice. Most of us, at one time or other, have known what it's like to juggle bills and the fear that grips us in the pit of our stomachs (generally in the middle of the night) over how we'll make it to the end of the month. It's doubly tough for those with empty stomachs.
Bloggers all over the country are asking their readers and friends to join together on April 1st and make a donation to Feeding America (formerly known as America's Second Harvest). Any donation, no matter how small, will go a long way if we all do it together.
I thought the story was fitting for April Food Day - one of mutual support and unique talent. Certainly, something bloggers know a lot about! Below is a video I found of about 10 minutes of of the program. At about the 4:18 minute mark is a very funny scene of prodigious eating - one of the unique talents of Pytor's band of friends. Let's all hope that one day, everyone will have enough.
A great thanks to Pigtown*Design and Easy and Elegant Life for spearheading this effort. Two voices have grown to include many. Let's keep it going!
