Monday Motivation: Keeping A 10K Promise

Anti-hunger, KB's Journey

Today’s post is actually more like a confession. You see, last year, I signed up to run the Run 10 Feed 10 challenge in Cincinnati in October. I was rocking and rolling on during my training for like 3 weeks, and then… BOOM. I fell off. Big time. So much so, that I *gulp* skipped the race.


I know, I know, I know… You see. I figured that if no one asked me about it, then it didn’t matter. Especially since I’d already paid the registration fee, which helped provide 10 meals. But, deep down, I know better. So, I am getting my act together and keeping my promise to run 10 kilometers to fight hunger.

To make it count, I am doing the following:

  1. Using Charity Miles to not only help me keep track of my training miles, but to also raise funds for Feeding America. For every mile that I run, $0.25 is donated to the cause. If you’re looking for an incredible way to support a cause, this is a great one that will keep your body moving.
  2. For every training mile that log, I will donate $2 to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

So, there you have it. It’s time to make good on a promise that I made to myself and to fight hunger in the United States.

What goals have you backtracked on? How are you planning to get back on track?

We Like to Part-ay-ay-ay

Anti-hunger, Beauty & Style, Charitable Companies

…especially when it’s for a good cause!

Unilever is undertaking a comprehensive initiative to cross off hunger, which among other accomplishments will help donate TWO MILLION MEALS through Feeding America.

Today, the company is co-hosting a Twitter party to raise awareness about hunger in America and to inspire all of us to take small actions that can add up to a big difference in the world. Conversations will be driven by facts about hunger and simple ways that we can all do our part to help out.

The Twitter party kicks off at Noon ET, and you can follow along using the hashtag #BetterTogether. Oh, did I mention that there will be gifts? Use the hashtag in your tweets to show participation and be eligible for prizes given out during the party. Party peeps will have the chance to win one of 15 gift baskets filled with Unilever food and personal care items AND Unilever will donate 500 meals on behalf of each winner to Feeding America.

Good times indeed. Now, in full disclosure, Unilever is a client of my agency. I usually keep the two gigs separate unless a Client is doing something that totally fits into the scheme of my blog. All of that to say, I posted this on my own free will and was not asked to do so by my colleagues, managers, etc.

With that out of the way, I hope to see you at noon! Not following me on Twitter? Let’s fix that. 🙂

VIDEO: Hating on Charitable Celebs? Why?

Fab Gab, KB's Journey

Today I’m rolling out my first VLog because every now and then, I just want to talk. Things pop into my mind and I need to get them out. Having said all of that, today’s “Friday Fab Gab” topic is:

Why do people hate on celebrities who are doing charitable deeds?

Listen to my rant and then tell me your thoughts…I want to honestly know “What’s up with that?”
