Move For Hunger: We Did It!

Awarding the Mover of the Month award
Awarding the Mover of the Month award

On behalf of  Move For Hunger, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your generous donations during Global Giving's Open Challenge.  Your support has earned us a permanent spot on this amazing fundraising website and eliminated the costs associated with our prior fundraising site (A total savings of over $300 per year!)

Over the past few months, we have been hard at work to shed more light on the growing problem of hunger in this country.  Through a recent grant with Ford Motor Company, Move For Hunger's executive director was able to take a 28 day, 9,000 mile road trip across America.  During this journey, he visited food banks, movers, and other people looking to get involved in our hunger relief efforts.  You can watch some videos from the trip at

During the spring, we set up a mulitude of Gold's Gym Food Drives across the country.  Our movers generously provided boxes and transportation services for the event.  While we still have one more going for the month of May, Move For Hunger was able to collect over 1,200 lbs of food during these drives.  That's enough to provide over 960 meals to those in need!

We have tons more planned for 2011, and I can't thank you enough for your continued support.  Your donations make a HUGE impact to our cause.  Please continue spread the word about our growing organization.  If you haven't done so already, please follow us on our Facebook & Twitter pages to keep up with our activity on a daily basis.  We haven't quite been around for 3 years yet, but we're already approaching 200,000 lbs of food collected.  Thank you again to all of our donors, movers, food banks, and partners who continue to support Move For Hunger.  We'll be checking back soon!

We love our generous movers!
