As a member of the Feeding America network, we’re working harder every day to assist individuals and their families right here in Colorado & Wyoming in these tough economic times. It’s a daily challenge and we’re always looking for new ways to meet it head on. That’s why we’re so excited to announce our involvement in the Feeding America Pound for Pound Challenge! Now in its second year, this proven fundraising program has partnered with NBC’s The Biggest Loser and General Mills to encourage Americans to “Lose Nationally, Feed Locally”. And we need your support to make our involvement a success!
Participating is easy and your impact can be huge. Now through June 30, 2010, simply sign up and pledge your weight loss goals at pfpchallange.com
. For every pound you pledge, General Mills and other partners will donate 14 cents to Feeding America with 9 cents coming directly to FBR– that’s enough to purchase one pound of food. In addition, you can quickly and easily gain encouragement for reaching your goal and pledges for Food Bank of the Rockies through the program’s Friends & Family Online Fundraising program. The more sign ups and pledges a food bank has from its area, the more funds it receives. So please help us by signing up now and encouraging others to sign up and/or pledge! Visit FBR’s Pound for Pound blog for more information on how you can get involved on a local level! https://www.poundforpoundcolorado.blogspot.com/
