One of the organizations close to the ‘lil Burghers heart could use your help. With just a little over a month to go before the end of the year, The Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project needs about 2,000 Tote Bags to reach the 10,000 mark for the year. keep reading

Totes and Team Members in Action!

Yesterday, I did something, well, beyond awesome. I mingled with a few of my favorite team‘s players (Starks, Batch, and Essex) while we helped the Food Bank and Max pass out turkey and fixings to a little over 250 families. This was truly a blessing–it feels so good to give back and do good at any time of the year, but especially around holidays. keep reading

Hunger: A Few Thoughts

Today, I did not worry about my personal hunger. I am lucky. Not everyone is. 1 in 6 people are suffering from hunger, and that’s a problem.

The moment I got into work for a Staff Appreciation Day and realized I took the last bagel, I at the same time thought, “Good thing I got here when I did”. What was I thinking? Did I forget everything I learned when I joined up with other local bloggers for a #blogmob of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank last night? I should be thankful there were still donuts for the others to eat and that I did not have to go hungry. I sent my daughter to school with a full belly and two snacks for her 2 1/2 hours there. Others may eat their only meal between now and Monday at a school lunch while I will be enjoying subs, Kennywood chicken, and a baptismal picnic this weekend. My work provided me with an amazing lunch of foods from around the world and desserts out the wazoo. I should feel ashamed for the amount of food that I am sure we wasted today, and guilty for eating when I know others are suffering. keep reading
