Remember how The Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project was collecting supplies for Women’s History Month and I posted a challenge to gather some supplies? Well, I have to admit, I was slightly disappointed that Mr. Burgher was the only one to pull in supplies in my effort to fill up the car, but I was super excited that he gathered up 250 supplies (filling 5 tote bags) for us to take to the end of the month celebration at our favorite restaurant, Las Velas.
Friends, there is a harsh reality in the world around us. People living in poverty, unable to provide clothing, food, or shelter (basic needs) for their families. This shouldn’t be news to any of us, but today, I want to call attention to a special situation that is the harsh reality of poverty. Today, I am teaming up with a number of other local bloggers in a #BlogSwarm and we are going to bring it to you. This isn’t your typical ‘lil Burghers topic, but I urge you to listen.
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.
…as you would have done to you.
Recently, Mr. Burgher, our ‘lil Burghers, and I became #smhero (Social Media [super]Heroes) when we helped out with The Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project. I was charged with the challenge of taking a Tote Bag and filling it with food when I visited the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for the #BlogMob. This was an easy task, but we knew we had to do more.
