Couponing for Community: Use Your Awesome Couponing Talents to Help Others!

Last year, a bunch of bloggers got together and put on "Couponing for Community." Over 80 Bloggers participated and gave tons of food to needy local charities!

I'm joining in this year, and hope that you'd like to help to! Here's some more info about this awesome event:

What is Couponing for Community?
Couponing for Community is an effort by couponers all over America to use the power of couponing to make a united impact.  We invite you to join this community of couponers by using your couponing skills to give to a homeless shelter, food pantry, or a friend in need during the week ofMay 8-14, 2011!  May 14 is also National Stamp Out Hunger day, so giving is as easy as leaving a bag of non-perishable items by your mailbox.
What is the goal?
This year we are setting a goal of 10,000 items donated in one week’s time. We invite you to track your giving during the week  of May 8-14 and then share your story on our Facebook page. We’ll even have a giving tracker to tally up everyone’s efforts!!
What can you do now?
  • First, head on over and Like Couponing for Community on Facebook!   That will help keep you up to date on the details of the upcoming event and give you a place to connect with all of the other participating!
  • Second, as you shop over the next few weeks, begin to set aside items that you can donate during the week of May 8-14.  Note: Since we want to keep a tally of items given that week, make sure to keep track of the number of items that you give away.  You can even take a picture to upload on the Facebook page.

How awesome is that?? So, keep an eye out, and start setting aside those extra items you don't want/need. Let's see how much we can give!
