According to a USDA Survey released today, more than 1 in 7 American households had trouble putting food on the table in 2008. The numbers involving children are heartbreaking: “16.7 million children were classified as not having enough food.”Because of your interest a few months' back, I want to challenge you to take $10 out of your budget and see how far you can stretch it for charity. Show off your couponing skills and make a difference in your community! Here's how you can participate:
- Set aside $10 this month and work your couponing/deals/promo magic to get the most you can. Shop anywhere–grocery store, drugstore, Walmart, Target, etc.

- If you're not a blogger, please share your details in the Comments section below. I'd love to see your photo by email if you take one. Please pass the word around to your family and friends. Think about the impact we can make if we each contribute!
