This is a personal hello from me to all of you who have a deep concern and love for people who struggle to find food to eat daily. People from all over the world have joined with me to feed people in almost 20 countries.  Anything you or your friends give to this project will be spent only for food. We take care of the administrative cost another way in order to be able to spend all donations totally on food. I started out with $3.22 myself and with the help of so many others in the last nine years, it is over $210,000. Pretty amazing!
Thank you so much for your help.


"I would love to do this with the preschoolers/mother's-day-out program.  Think the children will really love this and will get them involved in helping others."

Just how did all of this start????  Well, in the fall of 2003, I was out walking a lot of days with a friend, and I began to notice pennies on the ground.  I said, "You know what?  I am going to begin picking up pennies and saving them.
