On November eighth I requested you on your assist…
I’m so grateful for the hundreds of thousands of people that learn / watch / obtain / hearken to and reply to our stuff. I don’t need something in return for myself. However I’m going to name in a favor right here. It’s a small ask but it surely might have a significant influence within the lives of people that actually simply want a break this time of yr.
I’ll hold this fast – there are roughly 259,000 individuals on my island who’re thought-about “meals insecure” and can’t get sufficient to eat with out help. 79,000 of them are kids beneath the age of 18. The concept of 79,000 kids inside a couple of miles from me going to mattress with out dinner, or exhibiting as much as faculty too hungry to be taught actually pisses me off. However I don’t keep mad when one thing can not and shouldn’t stand. I take motion. I hope you’re that method too.
My son and his center faculty buddies put collectively over 150 Thanksgiving dinners for the native meals financial institution to distribute to households in want. I needed to high this off with a monetary donation impressed by the children’ efforts so I requested you guys to make a small donation, provided that I’ve made you cash – or made you smile – in some unspecified time in the future this yr. You actually got here by means of large time.
As of this morning, we’ve smashed our authentic objective of elevating $10,000. LI Cares / The Harry Chapin Meals Financial institution is now going to obtain extra like $20,000, all of which shall be used to distribute meals to the meals insecure on Lengthy Island. This cash shall be serving to to feed tens of hundreds of individuals in want. It’s actually extraordinary what we’ve been in a position to do collectively this month.
So tomorrow, throughout the Thanksgiving meal, in a quiet second the place I ponder all the issues I’ve in my life to be grateful for…very excessive on the checklist shall be all of you. I respect you guys very a lot. You’ve completed an exquisite factor. We’ve doubled the objective and we’re making a huge impact on individuals’s lives.
In case you haven’t donated but, the shape is right here. Even 5 bucks goes a great distance.
