GTT - Virtual Food Drive

Green Tip Tuesday features Libby's virtual canned food drive. I love this idea of it being virtual. Why? Well, it is such a greener alternative than a physical food drive. You save on time, money and gas that you might otherwise have put towards participating in the food drive.

We have until the end of December to donate to "Libby's and Feeding America: Save Children from Hunger!" drive and there are so many different ways you can participate. Read below for all the information on this years virtual food drive and BE GREEN!

Libby's and Feeding America: Save Children from Hunger!

A recent report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows that nearly 17 million children in the U.S. live on the brink of hunger. Overall, more than 16 percent of Americans, or 49 million people, sometimes run short of nutritious food.

That's why, as part of this year's Get Back to the Table month, Libby's and Feeding America want you to help less fortunate families Get Back to the Table through the Virtual Canned Food Drive.

This is Libby's second year partnering with Feeding America to raise money through an online canned food drive. We want to empower you, your family and your community to give back to needy Americans. Here's how you can participate:

1. Click here to create a team. It can be your family, a group of friends or even an individual.

2. Start raising money by sharing your link with everyone around you. From friends to family, it doesn't hurt to ask.

3. You have until Dec. 13, 2010, to raise as much as you can through your donation page. If you raise $1,500 or more, Libby's will congratulate you by providing you with a year's supply of Libby's vegetables!

As a thank-you, Libby's will give every person who contributes to the Virtual Canned Food Drive a coupon for 50 cents off two cans of Libby's vegetables.

In addition, Libby's will match up to $40,000 of donations raised through December 13, 2010, which will help provide 525,000 meals for needy families!

Remember -- every five dollar donation helps provide 35 meals for needy families. Please support the cause!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
