Join the “Hunger is Unacceptable” Campaign
July 28, 2008 § Leave a comment
If you’ve followed David’s Food Stamp Challenge posts and final call-to-action, you may have seen this one coming.
We believe that everyone should have access to sufficient healthy food. In order to end hunger and food insecurity, the priorities and consciousness of our community must shift. We must, as a community, believe that hunger is unacceptable.
Well, here’s an easy way to get started. Join us, with one voice, and tell Central Texas that “hunger is unacceptable.”
Join the Campaign
1. Send us your photo.
Send a photo of you holding your “Hunger is Unacceptable” sign. Use cardboard, paper, fabric… whatever material you’d like. Take the photo by yourself, with your family, with your dog, at your favorite landmark, or even in your front yard – whatever you’d like.
Upload the photo directly to our Flickr group.
How to upload a photo or video to this group:
Upload the photos or video to your own Flickr photostream. Flickr gives you lots of ways to do this: www.flickr.com/tools.
Go to the Organizr, click on the “Your Groups” tab up the top, which will open to show you a list of all your groups. Just drag and drop the things you want to share on to the group!
We’ll post a photo gallery on our website, flickr album, facebook page, YouTube and other social media sites.
2. Join the hunger petition.
The most powerful message you can send to your legislative representatives is a hand-written letter. You can also drop off your sign at the Food Bank, or mail us your sign (8201 South Congress Avenue, Austin, TX 78745). Please write your name and full address on the back of your sign so your legislative representatives know you’re located in Central Texas, and sign it.
On September 30, the last day of Hunger Action Month, we’ll “take action” and deliver your signs to the legislative body at the Capitol in Austin.
3. Pass it on & stay informed.
Stay informed by joining the CAFB Community. We’ll give you updates about the campaign, and ways to take action during Hunger Action Month in September.
Tell your friends about the campaign using your social networks online like Facebook, Myspace, LinkedIn, Twitter and more. Or just do it the old fashioned way in person or by phone.
We respect your privacy. Just because you send us your photo via email, or mail us your sign, doesn’t mean that you’ll automatically be signed up to our enewsletter or receive letters from us in your mailbox. But we think you’ll like what we have to say, so why not give us a try and sign up online at http://www.austinfoodbank.org. You can always unsubscribe at any time.
