How My Girl is “Giving Back”

April 30, 2010


By now, you’ve all heard me get the word out about Anya and Rhiannon and their money raised for Feeding America.

Here’s the letter that just went out today from Second Harvest OC.

I pick the girls up after school for our private tour of their warehouse facility and so the girls can deliver their donation (actually around $80 bucks) in person.

Dear Friend,

After watching the recent Feeding America segment on American Idol’s “Idol Gives Back” episode, a couple of local entrepreneurs were inspired to take action.  Ten-year-old Anya and her friend Rhiannon from Dana Point, California decided to raise funds the old-fashioned way – by setting up a lemonade stand.



The girls made a huge sign that reads “Raising money for FEEDING AMERICA” and recruited Anya’s little four-year old brother, Lukas to provide the “cute” factor. Talk about savvy marketing skills! 

In just two days, Anya and Rhiannon raised over $60 to help feed the hungry. Here at Second Harvest, $60 translates into 120 meals – that’s 3 meals a day for a family of four for 10 days!

How can you take action?  First up is the mail carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive on May 8.  See below for how easy it is to participate.
And please keep reading for more easy ways you can get involved in the fight against hunger right here in Orange County!

Thank you for your support.
