Have you ever heard of Feed My Starving Children? Sending specially formulated, nutrient rich food to mal-nourished children in nearly 70 countries around the world, this non-profit Christian organization relies on volunteers to keep it going.
It’s an organization that’s close to my heart. I’ve volunteered there, packing food, and the before and after photos and videos they show you are more than enough to make you want to come back and do it all over again. I also love that 93% of the money they receive goes right back into helping others, with only 7% going toward administrative costs. One packed meal only costs 24 cents to produce – can you imagine spending that little per person on your next family meal? At that rate, they’re able to help millions of people around the globe.
When I learned that Jill over at Spoils of Wear was doing a feature called Traveling Bag for a Cause, raising awareness for FMSC, I knew I wanted to be involved. Jill purchased the bag from the FMSC store, then styled it on her blog. From there, it’s gone from blogger to blogger, with everyone styling it differently while promoting the great work that the organization is doing. That was a no brainer for me – I can style, and I love what they’re doing!
I loved the chevron pattern on the bag – since I wanted that to be the star I kept the clothing simple.
Wearing a JCrew top (truthfully, it was once a dry clean only dress that accidentally made its way into the laundry pile), and my red pants from Len Druskin, I was able to let the bag shine.
Aren’t the colors perfect for fall?
My grandmother’s bracelet, a Wild Ruffle necklace, and some Lois Hill earrings were the only accessories I needed.
When I saw that my friends Chris Ann and Kristin over at LoveFeast Table were trying to raise $24,000 to sponsor a mobile packing unit for FMSC, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Here’s where you come in. For every comment left on this post until December 30th, I will donate $1 toward the packing unit, up to $1,000. Just leave a comment telling me about your favorite cause, and you’ve automatically raised $1 toward feeding a child in need. Want to raise more? Leave up to two additional comments if you post this link on Facebook or Tweet about it (just be sure to tag Wild Ruffle on FB, or mention @wildruffle so I can be encouraged by your sharing of the love). That’s $3 dollars toward changing a life, without any commitment on your part.
If you’d like to go even further, be sure to check out the link via the LoveFeast/FMSC button on my sidebar. They’re working together to accomplish something wonderful, and they’d love to have you along for the journey. To hear more about their story, click here.
So start commenting – I can’t wait to hear about all of your favorite causes!
