I'm part of a team raising $35,000 to deliver 70,000 meals to kids who are facing the winter without a steady supply of food. Can you help? As little as $.50 provides one meal!
Did you know 13 million kids in America won't have enough food to eat this weekend? Holy crap! It's startling that hunger isn't only happening in isolated parts of our country, but right here in our own neighborhoods. Not only does Conscious Alliance support Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, the over 100+ food drives we host annually support local communities nationwide in addition to the programs we support locally in Boulder, CO.
Among all the complicated political turmoil we face on a daily basis, it's easy to overlook the very basics. There are people who don't know how they'll receive their next meals.
This is one of the reasons I came to work for Conscious Alliance. To help people receive the basis necessity we all deserve and need to survive—food.
Conscious Alliance is a movement built out of the music scene that empowers young people. As a music and concert art lover, I was inspired by Conscious Alliance's work before I started as a full-time employee in January of this year. The fact that helping other people is my job, makes me a better human being. I get to live my passion.
This year, my work efforts has helped donate over $1.2 million worth of food in 2018! I've gotten to partner with my husband and Madison House Presents to promote the largest food drive to date at Electric Forest Festival. I've watched as we've delivered semi-trucks of food donations for the first time from natural food companies like Justin's and Hormel to impoverished nations like Pine Ridge Reservation. I can't begin to tell you what it means to see the impact of my work and getting to walk into an office everyday with like-minded people who want to make the world better.
How will my fundraiser help reach hungry kids in need? Conscious Alliance is now receiving large-scale food donations (literally semi-trucks of food!) from the natural food industry. The money raised through my fundraiser will help move the food to where it's needed and will be distributed through Conscious Alliance's network of schools, getting the food directly into the hands of kids.
