A 2020 Contemplation (and what’s to come)

Today is December 1st. It’s the day we typically launch our final project of the year. Thinking about this time last year, I don’t think anyone could have imagined the complete craziness of 2020. Giving to Hungry For A Day dipped a bit, but overall, we were still able to help so many. This year, we helped our friends at […]

Thanksgiving Time!

Some of you have been following along for years and know that Thanksgiving is our favorite time of the year. To those that are new, here’s the story… Nine years ago, a church in the Pensacola area, asked us to help him put a plan together to provide 25 families with a Thanksgiving meal. That first year, we blew the goal […]

Update on our last project : Our last project provided meals to the doctors/nurses/staff for two ICU wards at Grady Hospital who are on the front lines of fighting the Corona/Covid-19 pandemic, as well as helping bring business to a restaurant staff during these turbulent times. A huge thank you to everyone who gave! Before that, we helped our friends at Comprehensive Community […]

We’re not all hunkered down…

While the corona virus has most of us hunkered down at home, avoiding everyone, there’s a group that’s out there doing good.  It’s our friends at CCS (Comprehensive Community Services). They’re a nonprofit working in one of the roughest and lowest income zip codes of Atlanta. They’re working with the homeless, women in the sex industry and those in the margins – […]

A note about 2020

I always take time during the  holiday season to reflect on the past year and think about the upcoming year. As I reflect on 2019, I am so grateful for a group of people that desire to live generously. What’s next for 2020? Encouraging more people towards a life of generosity, partnering with more organizations that are making an impact […]

Where is your Thanksgiving dinner coming from?

2019 is Year 8 of our Thanksgiving outreach. It all started when our friend, Tim Payne, from the Pensacola area, asked us to help him put a plan together to provide 25 families with a Thanksgiving meal. That first year, we blew the goal away and helped 55 families. (meals being assembled in Pensacola, Florida) Over the past 7 years, the […]

Summer Project

I have such great memories of summertime – days with no agenda, riding my bike through the neighborhood, playing baseball, going to amusement parks to ride roller coasters…but the highlight of summer for me was always summer camp. A full week to be away from home, adventuring in the woods, swimming, playing sports and making new friends. This summer, we’re […]

An Invitation

Like many of us, I like to consciously take some time during this season to reflect on the past 12 months and think about what’s in store for the next calendar year. As I reflect on 2018, I’m most grateful for our community that desires to live generously. My vision for 2019 involves expanding this reach – we want to […]

109%

What is 109%? Last year for every dollar given to a Hungry For A Day project, 109% went to the project. How does this happen? Each December, our community gives to fully fund our Operating Costs for the next year. In 2019, we need $19,500 each year to cover the basics. Expenses include administrative costs, credit card processing & IRS […]

Thanksgiving 2018 (It’s finally here!)

Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching, and it’s our biggest undertaking of the year! If you’re like most of our community of generosity, you’re thinking about who you’ll be inviting over for Thanksgiving Day, who will be cooking the turkey and whether you’ll be eating pumpkin or apple pie. Having a hot meal on Thanksgiving is a luxury most of us […]

Meals for Teen Moms

With the back-to-school season in full swing, we are once again working with the Atlanta YoungLives outreach program as they minister to teenage moms. YoungLives pairs teen moms with other women mentors who encourage and support these young moms as they simultaneously navigate two of the most challenging stages of life: the teen years and early motherhood. One of the […]

A Special Need

This month we’re excited to once again be partnering with Don Shire Ministries and the Jehovah Rapha House, a special needs orphanage in Haiti. Last year when we helped the Jehovah Rapha House, they had just found out they were being evicted because the owner didn’t realize they were housing “ugly children”. We are happy to report that God has […]

Walking with sex workers and the sexually exploited

It’s time for our first project of 2018! We’re revisiting a partner that we’ve helped several times through the years, Serenity’s Steps. Our goal over the next two months is to fund their Hotdogs and Prayer outreach. What is Hotdogs and Prayer and who is Serenity’s Steps? Serenity’s Steps is an organization that walks with sex workers and the sexually […]
