It’s the first month of the new year, and many people have different opinions about it. Some are happy for a new start and a chance to set goals. some are sad because the holiday season is over and they have to go back to work or school, and quite a few are scared because the “giving season” is over.
Hunger Is Not Seasonal
Many people dedicate a lot of their time during November and December to volunteering and donating their possessions to those in need. This is great; it brings communities together and gives a sense of hope to those who are struggling to make ends meet. However, those volunteers go back to work or school and the donations begin to diminish. With over 50 million people dealing with food insecurity and 1 in 5 children going to be hungry every night, we need to do something to help year-round.
Make “Giving Back” a Lifestyle
With the new year, many people try to weave better choices and ways to attain happiness into their life. Why not add making a difference in someone’s life as something to achieve throughout 2016? This may sound complicated, but with TangoTab, it is easy and fits in your daily routine. Whether you use the app at a partner restaurant or attend one of our monthly Feed the City events, you can end hunger.
To give back with the app simply find restaurants near you on the app, check in or redeem an offer, and we will take care of the rest. The cost of a meal will be donated to a local food bank, and you can keep track of how many people you have fed.
To give back through the Feed the City events, just join the Facebook page to find out about upcoming events and see what materials you need to provide. It is a fun, family-friendly sandwich-making event that brings people together from numerous communities. All the sandwiches, chips, and cookies are packed in a truck and donated to the SoupMobile, who then distribute it to food banks around the area.
We Are All In This Together
Let’s make 2016 one to remember. Set your goals high, continue working on them throughout the year, and make every day a positive one. Don’t save the happiness, giving, and spending time with people for the end of the year. Start today and inspire others to make a difference.
