Blogging To Feed The Hungry

This is a HUGE thank you to all of you who follow my blog and come here to visit me every day. About a year ago I started advertising on my blog and have made a vow to donate all the proceeds from advertising to Gleaner's Food Bank of Indianapolis. In one year The Other Side of 50 has raised almost $250 dollars to help feed the hungry, thanks to you guys. Pat yourselves on the back. You've made me proud. Keep coming back and see my head really swell with pride for y'all, OK?

Hubby asked me if I ever make it REALLY big like Pioneer Woman would I continue to donate the money to Gleaner's? I said "heck yeah" and then I'd have to come back here and tell you all that "I love you more than my luggage."

Thank you again for your support and know that by your daily visits you not only tickle the crap out of me and my ego, your efforts are also feeding the hungry. You guys rock!

If you have the time, please check out the video below on what the folks at Gleaner's Food Bank are all about. And if you're so inclined, leave a donation, or find a way to help out your own local food bank or food pantry.

love,
Mags
P.S. The Other Side of 50 will be on vacation until sometime next week due to my turning 52 on Saturday. I'm heading north to celebrate (or mourn) the event. Behave and hold down the internet while I'm gone, OK?

You don't look a day over 30! Have an awesome birthday and thanks for sharing the love to a good cause.

Rhee is a great example of philanthropy and has inspired me to give all my proceeds back to my readers in the form of giveaways. Thanks for being one of my biggest supporters!
