I love how things come together unexpectedly sometimes. I love how I can still find so much good in the world amidst the sadness and tragedy. I love how people continue to amaze and astound me. Quite frankly—I am loving life right now.
When I had this little idea I threw it out to my North Iowa Blogger family and they all jumped on board so I am thrilled to announce that we are embarking on a campaign of sorts to raise more awareness and help stock our local food pantries.
The month of October I designated my Comments for a Cause to be for Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank and tomorrow I will reveal the amount that we will be donating to them as a result of Comments for a Cause. During November our North Iowa Blogger group will be promoting both Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank and The Franklin County Food Pantry by collecting donations of both canned goods and money to be donated to both of these great facilities.
I am thrilled to be able to promote this on It’s Just Life and hope that you agree that this is a great thing to do in November . I know I have so much to be thankful for—November is definitely a month for thanks and I am going to show my thanks in a tangible way with a donation of food.
If you would like to join in on the food drive with the North Iowa Bloggers we would love to have you join us. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make a donation and I will follow up with you. How awesome would it be to have this little local food drive go crazy big???? I would be beside myself.
If you would rather donate to your own food pantry PLEASE do!!!! They are all in need of food and especially as the holiday season approaches the needs are great. Ozzie Ohl from the Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank posted a list of things that are most needed and I would venture to say it is a universal need. Please join us in November—give what you can where you can.
Most Needed Items
Mac & Cheese
