Michele Boal co-founder of Coupons.com and founder of CouponsforChange.org wants to remind others that together we can all make a difference, “It’s difficult to comprehend the enormity of this epidemic, but the fact that there are over 16 million children in our country feeling the emptiness in their stomachs is something that drives us to be a solution to this problem. We have already secured meals for over 1.4 million children struggling with hunger over the past year and we look forward to exceeding this number in the coming year.”
“Share Our Strength is working to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children have access to the nutritious food they need to learn and grow,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “We’re excited about our new partnership with Coupons for Change given their unique ability to help families across the country save money on groceries and essential household items while providing meals to children struggling with hunger through our No Kid Hungry Campaign.”
“I grew up with a single mom in a house where money was tight, and I didn’t always know where my next meal was coming from,” said Melissa d’Arabian. “Now, as a mother to four young daughters, I want to do everything possible to ensure they – and all children in America – never experience hunger. I’m proud to join forces with Coupons for Change as they help families save money while also giving back to a cause that is so close to my heart: helping Share our Strength end childhood hunger in this country.”
Coupons for Change has created a video titled “Save Money, Change Lives” to show how easy it is to give back all year long just by saving.
