All That to Say: Feed

I love this weekend's giveaway because it is such an incredible program! If you don't know about the Feed Program it was started by Laura Bush and is a program designed to feed the nations.

The program produces bags made of recycled burlap bags (super cute, visit KASA if you live in The Woodlands, or find other local areas by going to the Feed Website.)  On each product is a number, and that number represents something significant.

For example, the cute bag I am giving away has the number one on it which means it will provide 1 child a supply of micronutrient powder for 1 year! 

Here are some statistics about world hunger for you:

1 in 7 people in the world go to bed hungry every night (including here in the US).
More people die from malnutrition than malaria, Aids, and tuberculosis combined.
Hunger is No. 1 on the list of the World Health's Top 10 Health Risks.
65% of the world's hungry live in 7 countries.

Here's where it hits home for us:

When we first got our daughters, they were so severely malnourished that their skin was sloughing off, their hair was falling out, they had skin sores over much of their body, and they weren't even on the growth charts for height and weight.  All from malnutrition.

So this weekend, I'm giving away a bag from the Feed Program.  You'll have to be local to get it, as I won't be able to get it to you in time for Halloween (unless you don't care at all about it having for THIS halloween, in which case, enter away!)

As always, the rules are simple, Follow the blog, retweet this post on Twitter, @thatcaroljones, and then leave a comment ON THIS BLOG. (If you've already followed my blog, you're still eligible and if you're not on Twitter don't panic!  Just make SURE you comment on this blog!)

All that to say, we can't do everything, but we can all do something.  I love what Andy Stanley said at Catalyst, "Do for one what you wish you could do for everyone."

(And don't forget to check back on Monday and see if you've won!  I haven't heard back from last week's winner of the great Mocha Baby Designs and will have to have a redrawing on Monday for that gift as well!)


  1. love this idea and how they promote their organization, and raise awareness! super cute bag too!!

  2. I really didn't just comment for the bag -- been meaning to follow, but kept forgetting!!!!! Love ya!

  3. Wow Carol,
    That really touched me. Reminded me when we first got Sierra back and how thin and malnutrition she was.
    We caught her chewing paper allot and finally we asked why are you always chewing paper it's not good for you. She answered " we'll mom said paper will keep me full longer :( yeah sad.
    But yes this is such a great cause. I will be looking into it to see if they have anything like this in Prescott Az...
    Thanks for the heads up.
