The holiday season is here! Between Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts, planning Christmas dinner with family, visiting friends and attending holiday parties, things are about to get crazy! During all the holiday madness, I always try my best to give back to those in need and show my support towards causes that are near and dear to me.
This year, McCain Foods Canada wants to make a difference in the lives of countless Canadians with their #McCainShareGood campaign. And they need your help! Show your support and win some great prizes! Keep reading to find out how!
I don’t think I’ve ever shared this on the blog, but I am now. When I was a child, there were times when my mother, who raised me as a single parent, relied on The Food Bank during tough times to feed both of us. Even with her working a full-time job and getting a second one, it wasn’t enough to consistently provide for both of us. Eventually, things turned around and my mom found a better paying job and met a wonderful man. So we didn’t need to rely on the Food Bank for help anymore.
However every year, there is a staggering number of people throughout Canada that still need help. This year, many Canadian families are facing great difficulty in putting gifts under the tree for their little ones or even food on their tables to feed their families.
Did you know?
According to the 2014 Food Banks Canada Donor Impact Report, more than 4 million Canadians don’t know when their next meal will be. In the coming year, McCain Foods Canada has pledged to donate a total of one million dollars worth of food and monetary support to Food Banks Canada, to help fill the plates of those in need.”
We all know how much good can come from helping others. This holiday season from November 19 – December 23, McCain Foods will donate $5 to Food Banks Canada up to $50,000, for every good news story, shared using #McCainShareGood on Twitter or by tagging the McCain Foods Canada Facebook page. Share something good, all while helping the hungry. Now that’s something to feel great about!
