Today is the day of the 7th annual Bull City Foodraiser, run by Greg Doucette down in Durham, NC, working with Turquoise Parker of the Durham County schools.
It’s to raise money to send food home with kids over the holiday break – a lot of these kids get most of their meals from school – and school break can mean skipped meals. NO ONE WANTS THAT, RIGHT?
I am doing a $2 match on the first 250 donations. Other folks are doing matches, too.
You may be thinking, “this sounds really nice, but I don’t have enough to make a difference.”
With the matches – whatever you donate – even just $1 – will have more money added to it! So, even a little can really help.
I’ll update this w/the exact match number in a bit, the GFM is live, but Greg hasn’t done his big thread with the # of matchers just yet.
UPDATE: 18 MATCHERS – YOUR DONATION NETS ANOTHER $36!!!!!
Last year, everyone went a little nuts and over $55K was raised. The whole thread of days happy insanity with the backstory and pictures is here.
Can we do it again?!?!? COME ON, MAKE A DONATION AND SPEND MY MONEY! Things are still really hard for so many people, especially kids – let’s make things just a little easier.

(I know the link looks weird, but it’s good. )
They also have 501c3 status now, so your donation may be tax deductible, depending on your tax situation.
