I hope that you're looking forward to this month of December with more pleasure than dread.
I got in the Christmas spirit early this year and recorded a brand new Christmas song called "Merry Christmas To You." It's a fun country-folk celebration of the season.
One of the ways I'm giving this holiday season is through this nifty online service called Charitable Checkout. When you donate to Feeding America through the widget (seen above), I'll give you an exclusive free download of "Merry Christmas To You" – which is not available anywhere else – and one of my sponsors will give you a coupon for their products. Talk about holiday savings!
Feeding America is my charity of choice because celebrating with food and family is one of my very favorite pastimes at the holidays. I am deeply affected by the knowledge that 1 in 6 Americans is affected by hunger. No one should be hungry at any time of the year, but especially not during the holidays.
With every dollar you give, Feeding America provides 8 meals for those who might otherwise go without.
Whether you're up to your elbows in pastry flour or serenely clicking "order now," I hope you'll join me in easing the pain of hunger in America this Christmas.
"Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can
Merry Christmas To You"
My love to you with many thanks,
