First, let me say Happy Thanksgiving to all of those celebrating today.
As we sit down to our plentiful feasts, I wanted to take a moment to bring a wonderful campaign to your attention, and I hope you will join me in supporting it. And if you have a blog, join me in blogging about it.
Kidfresh is a line of all-natural frozen kids’ meals, created with the input of nutritionists and chefs to help busy parents get some wholesome foods (veggies too!) into their picky children. And now they reaching out to bloggers and their readers to help feed children in need in NYC.
Up to December 15th, Kidfresh will donate 30* of their meals to City Harvest of New York City for every new “Like” on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/Kidfreshfoods
For every blog post covering the campaign, Kidfresh will donate 300* Meals to City Harvest. How amazing is that? If you are a blogger and you want to write a post, email me at carketch29 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I will forward you the email I received on how to do this.

Let me be very clear that this is not a sponsored post. I have received nothing from Kidfresh beyond the email asking me to spread the word. And with such a wonderful donation campaign, how could I not take part?
Everyone can help, whether or not they are a blogger. If you don’t have a blog, simply click HERE to “like” Kidfresh on Facebook and send 30 meals to City Harvest.
