Diana Cosby drops by to talk about her 5th International Food Bank Drive Challenge


Diana Cosby picIt’s the holidays again, an emotion-filled time where it seems there are not enough hours in each day to fit everything in, not to mention dealing with the struggling economy. But, in this time of financial challenges, I ask each of you to please consider one more stop on your crazy to do list, that of making a donation to a local food bank. Your donation can be a dollar, potatoes, whatever you can give. Anything you can offer to those with nothing is a gift they didn’t have.

I volunteer for Habitat For Humanity, and something amazing happens when you allow a person a flicker of hope, that somehow, incredibly, even a stranger understands that at times life shoves us onto a road we never asked for.

Ifood-bankn 2010 in addition to my personal donation to my local food bank, I decided to start a Food Bank Challenge, except it wonderfully got out of hand. Once I posted The Food Bank Challenge on my Facebook page and my Facebook romance author page, people from across the U.S. began donating to their local food banks. Then, my Facebook pages received posts of donations from Canada — the Food Bank Challenge went international! Since then, donations for the International Food Bank Food Challenge have been made in numerous countries. And you know what, this is truly a blessing. In this venture, we all win. Gifts from the heart do that, they fill you, remind you there is good in the world, and that you can make a positive and profound difference in others lives.

2014 International Food Bank Challenge

 Goal: 1000 donations.

 

How it works: Starting on the 1st of November, when you donate to a local food bank orth (4) food drive, post on my Facebook page -or- Facebook Fan page, (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Diana-Cosby-Romance-Author/150109024636?ref=ts), beneath the daily International Food Bank Challenge post, add that you donated along with your name and contact information. On December 5th, I will use http://www.random.org to select one name from all of the people who posted that they donated on my FB page or fan page that I received.

I will mail the winner an autographed set of the bestselling MacGruder Brother series; His Captive, His Woman, His Conquest, His Destiny, His Seduction, His Enchantment and a tote bag from this year’s New Jersey Romance Writer’s conference!
