What up, y'all!!
A quick word about some changes here at SimpleSizeMe. I've gladly joined the board of Fruit of the Vine International (new website on the way, old one here). Therefore, I'm directing all future SimpleSizeMe donations to Fruit of the Vine. Many thanks to all the supporters of other organizations, especially The Hunger Project. The Hunger Project does great work and they have received over $3,200 through SimpleSizeMe. I hope to meet their people sometime soon.
My hope now is to give a boost to Fruit of the Vine. I will be working to provide as much information as possible on their efforts. I'm also going to see if I can fly out to Kenya in May (anyone wanna help me with flight money??) to take some video of their projects. I know that once you see the great work that is happening through Fruit of the Vine, you will want to participate.
So from now on, you can think of this blog as a place to learn about hunger and other serious challenges but also as a place to provide direct relief through supporting the work of Fruit of the Vine International. I hope you will join with me in these next two months to build a stronger platform of givers, prayers, doers, and care-ers for Fruit of the Vine.
I am planning to end this rice diet on June 6 which will be the date of the Fruit of the Vine annual banquet. Please plan on joining us here in Philadelphia on that date. I will provide more info as I have it.
Thank you all so much for taking this journey with me. It's been wonderful. Now, let's finish well.
