HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Thank you for your generosity and support this year.  It's been an amazing one!  In under 3 years, we've collected nearly 400,000 lbs of food for food banks and pantries across the country.  We have some BIG things planned for 2012.  Please continue to visit our website and let people know our young organization exists.  We couldn't do what we do without your support!


On behalf of our entire team - THANK YOU!

Have You Heard About the Cool Stuff We're Doing?

Tis the Season...

Hope everyone is doing well!  We wanted to update you on all the cool stuff we've been up to over the past few months.  Last we chatted, we were just on the VH1 Do Something Awards where we were able to tell the world about our hunger relief efforts.  This was an incredible experience, and we were honored to be nominated among the other organizations!

We've been so busy since then. As of today, we are just 2 moving companies away from hitting 200!  That's 200 movers going out every day asking their customers for their unopened, non-perishables and making a difference in the communities they serve.  Together, we have delivered over 350,000 lbs of food to food banks across the country.  Oh, and we're not even 3 years old yet!!

We could not do what we do without the support of our generous partners and donors.  You guys help us do great things, and we can't thank you enough for your passion for our cause.

You'll be hearing from us again soon.  We've been chosen as 1 of 5 organizations up for a MILLION dollars on the Chase American Giving Awards.  This will be aired on NBC in December, and we're really going to need your help in getting out the vote. We got an AWESOME endoresment in the first round of voting: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN!  That's right!  The Boss loves Move For Hunger!  Check us out on his website!

If you're interested in joining our street team, please email Jason@moveforhunger.org, and he'll get you set up.  And if you haven't done so already, LIKE us on Facebook!

Thank you all gain for being ridiculously amazing!  Please stay tuned for more hunger updates!

 

Sincerely,

Adam Lowy
