I Made A Wish On Santa's Lap: Let's End Hunger in 2009

Seems like everyone's got a wish this holiday season... London and Maddie have been writing letters to Santa, but this year they've been more conscious of other people's needs and situations. Just today, Rex and I went over to Mendham Township Elementary School for the holiday singalong and brought a second big bag of London and Maddie's contributions to the Interfaith Food Pantry (I posted about Maddie's Pop Tart contribution over on Roxiticus Desperate Housewives when the food drive first started a couple of weeks ago).

As you may have noticed, all of my blogs, including this one, the Bay Head Blog, participated in a Blogging Out Hunger campaign to raise awareness of hunger in New Jersey and to raise money or food donations for the Community FoodBank of NJ on Monday, December 15th, and the donations are still coming in through the blogosphere. Today, I kept going on the Blogging Out Hunger campaign by leaving a comment on This Full House (see link in the post below), where Stop and Shop will contribute $1.00 for every comment up to $300. I also went over to the CEIVA Digital Photo Frame site and sat on Santa's lap. As you can see from the photo above, I made a wish to end hunger and whispered it in Santa's ear. You never know... I thought it made sense to cover all bases. The folks at CEIVA are also having a contest at their site: one random entry will be selected on each day of the contest through the end of the year. Each winner receives a cash prize of $500. While $500 won't end hunger, it sure would make a nice contribution to the Community FoodBank of NJ. Why don't you head over to the CEIVA site and make your own wish?
