robin hood foundation

Anyone who knows me will soon learn why I am so excited about today's posting.  It's about cheese.

Give an artisanal Cheese of the Month Club and a contribution will be made to the Robin Hood Foundation to fight hunger.  How novel...fighting hunger with food! 

Okay, first of all...cheese.  Enough said.  Second, I have a huge philanthropic crush on the Robin Hood Foundation.  Since 1988, the Robin Hood Foundation has targeted poverty by applying sound investment principles to philanthropy, helping the best programs save lives and change fates.  $25 is all it takes to provide 3 meals a day for an entire week.

At Robin Hood, 100% of your donation goes directly to programs helping poor New Yorkers.  

You don't have to buy cheese to help out Robin Hood.  You can make donations or tributes, register for gifts, or buy cards or party favors.  And thanks to a matching grant in effect right now, your donation will get matched dollar for dollar and have twice the impact.

I'm not done yet.  Check it out...there are other FREE ways you can help out the Robin Hood Foundation.  You can donate your FB status or tweet a message in support of the Robin Hood Foundation and promote this awesome organization to your friends, family, and community.

And one more cool thing for music lovers...

Tomorrow, December 4, join Sheryl Crow at Irving Plaza for a concert to benefit Robin Hood. One general admission concert ticket ($250 - $130 of which is tax deductible) will provide 300 meals for hungry New Yorkers.  And you get to rock.  With Sheryl Crow.  And there's an open bar.  Win win win.
