Bigger than Us: Walking for Charity

Bigger than Us: Walking for Charity

We've talked about walking to raise awareness for a cause. After looking at all the options we are excited about our decision to support something that is very relevant to not only our trip, but also to millions of people across the Untited States. We are backpacking across America, and it seemed right to choose a charity that supported people in our own country. Given that we will not be eating extravagantly, due to our limited carrying capacity and rather small budget, it only seemed right to bring foward the reality that domestic hunger is and issue in this country.

feedingamericalogoFeeding America provides a number of services and programs aimed at relieving hunger throughout our country. We encourage you to visit their site and make a donation. Our walk is not charity based, but it seemed selfish not to use it as a vehicle to help others. Furthermore, it would warm our hearts to know this walk was bigger than us (that means you too).

By donating in honor of OurWalkAcrossAmerica.com we will be able to keep everyone up to date on how much has been raised. Simply follow this link to FeedingAmerica.org, select "Give A Meal" under the "WAYS TO GIVE" menu, and donate in honor of OurWalkAcrossAmerica.com; be sure to place either This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in the recipients box at the bottom of the page.

If unable to donate please post a link to either this page or to FeedAmerica.org on your Facebook or Twitter, because every little bit helps.

 

Thanks Again, 

Levi and Shikira
