Going Orange for No Kid Hungry + Blog Hop

Pin It

Crayon Freckles has gone orange in support of the No Kid Hungry hunger awareness campaign. i've joined with 75+ moms to create awareness in the fight to end childhood hunger in America.   join us on facebook here
i've posted before in support of No Kid Hungry.  i shared their Hunger Hits Home documentary and to helped you connect with your legislators about policy changes that affect children in need.  but i still want to do more.  in one of my other posts, i shared a story about a situation i had with my own hungry child... 

there were several nights that Bear chose not to eat dinner. about an hour afterwards, he would ask for a snack. on the fourth night or so, we told him that if he chose not to eat, he would have to wait until bedtime snack. by an hour before snack, my sweet Bear came to me crying and saying desperately,
momma i'm hungry!
my heart was twisted, so of course, i got him a snack. 
but i can't fathom being in that same situation as some other parents are
and knowing that

i couldn't go into the kitchen and get him something to eat.
can you imagine that?
