Washington DC Crop Hunger Walk 2012

I'm very proud and love that my sister Malinda Dix-Hunt put forth a successful CROP Hunger Walk for 2012. I'm certain the group is still accepting donations from anyone who would like to contribute.

I was thrilled to be a part of the hunger walk.  In the midst of my own financial stresses it was a relief to think of someone else ... to help someone in my community with one of their most basic needs, hunger!  

By myself, ending World Hunger seemed a daunting task.  But gathered together in Southwest I learned that we helped make a difference for those less fortunate in our community by participating in the DC Crop Hunger Walk on Saturday, May 5, at the Christ United Methodist Church (4th and I Streets SW).

We met representatives of Martha's Table and Hunger Revolution and found that there were other ways to get involved in the struggle to end hunger than fund raising.  I was concerned that I had not trained for the walk, it was only a few miles (2-3) but my husband came along to make sure that I was both encouraged and protected.  He and another friend kept me company and I finished the walk with others.  There was only one injury ... a trip and fall on the side walk but she was able to,  with God grace, finish the walk with us. 

I am going to do this again and you can go online if you desire to donate to support this effort on my page, go to Ending Hunger One Step at a Time.  You'll feel good about it.
