ACTION REQUESTED: Walmart’s Fight Hunger. Spark Change.

We are excited to announce the launch of Walmart’s Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign! Folks, this campaign is a big one for Care and Share, and your participation can help us provide food to thousands of our Southern Colorado neighbors in need. Participation in the following activities are tracked by zip code, and we directly benefit from each activity that happens within our 31-county service area! Now through April 25th, there are three easy ways for you to get involved: 

  • Purchase: For every participating product purchased at Walmart between March 28 and April 25, 2016, the manufacturer will donate $0.09 to Feeding America – enough to secure one meal on behalf of local food banks, like Care and Share. See package or click here for details. Participating suppliers are: Campbell Soup Company, General Mills, Kellogg Company, the Kraft Heinz Company, and PepsiCo 

  • Online Acts of Support:  
    • Generate donations for Feeding America food banks by using #FightHunger on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, sharing and liking campaign posts on Facebook, showing support on and using unique Snapchat filters in select stores.
    • For the first time, Twitter has developed a custom emoji for the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign. When you Tweet using the hashtag #FightHunger, the custom emoji will appear after the hashtag.
    • For each online act of support, Walmart will donate, up to $1.5 million to Feeding America.
    • To kick off the campaign, Walmart will make an initial donation of $1.5 million to Feeding America. Based on the public’s social engagement, the goal is to reach $3 million! 
  • Donate: Donate to a local Feeding America food bank, yours is Care and Share:),  at the register.
Lastly, we are thrilled to share that two of Care and Share’s very own volunteers, Jenny Schell (who you may remember as the keynote speaker at Care and Share’s 2015 Recipe for Hope) and Kendra Larmour are featured in this nation-wide campaign!! Check out their videos by clicking their names above.
