Pound for Pound Challenge

So.... got plans for how to stick to that every-New-Year's-resolution of losing weight?  Carrie mentioned the Biggest Loser's "Pound for Pound Challenge" and, of course - we decided to sign on!

Did you know that hunger is a struggle for 1 in 6 Americans? There are many ways you can spread awareness and help Feeding America deliver millions of pounds of groceries to local food banks.

Last year, The Pound For Pound Challenge helped Feeding America® deliver more than 3.5 million pounds of groceries to local food banks. The Pound For Pound Challenge is back for year two and with everyone's participation, it will be even BIGGER!

For every pound you pledge to lose through June 30, 2010, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 14¢ to Feeding America® – enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank. $800,000 maximum donation. 

 You can also check it out on Facebook

Stay tuned after the new year (and holiday feasting has subsided) and cheer us on to our goal!!
