Huddle to Fight Hunger

Making a difference can be easy when great companies get behind great causes. You can make a difference just by clicking on the link below. Kraft is donating one meal for every click to their page or text. It won't take much effort on your part, but it will make a big difference for someone.

Here is a copy of the email I received with the link. Since I live in Southeast Michigan it is directed to the local food bank near me, but this is a national program. Please click today. The program ends on January 9th.

Kraft Foods has teamed up with Feeding America and Gleaners for the HUDDLE TO FIGHT HUNGER!

What is "Huddle to Fight Hunger"? Huddle to Fight Hunger is Kraft Foods' biggest-ever multi-brand integrated program. The program features many celebrities and the college football Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl game, all designed to help give Feeding America 20 million meals – or more – during this year's football season.

How does Huddle to Fight Hunger work? The program features a number of ways to help Kraft Foods meet and exceed their 20 million meal donation goal.  Here are a few of the easy ways to help:

  • Go to, and click "Join the Huddle" (just one simple click!). When you do, Kraft Foods will donate one meal. It's that easy: one person, one click, one meal donated to Gleaners.
  • Text the word "MEALS" and your zip code to 71717 – Kraft Foods will make a one meal donation to Gleaners for each text.
  • Play the Kraft Foods HUDDLE TO FIGHT HUNGER Game on Facebook! In the Fight Hunger Facebook Game, you pass the ball to a friend. For every pass thrown, Kraft Foods will donate 1 meal. If you and your friends can keep the drive alive for 4 passes, a touchdown will be scored and Kraft Foods will donate 7 bonus meals, for a total of 10!

As a member of the Feeding America network, Gleaners benefits from initiatives like this that raise awareness and funding for the important work we do every day. Millions of Americans are faced with food insecurity – and we're working harder every day to assist individuals and their families right here in Southeast Michigan. It's a daily challenge, and we are always looking for new ways to meet it head on – ways like the Huddle to Fight Hunger initiative!

Work is Fun?

Recently I changed positions at work and I found that I had a real difficult time adjusting. I went from being in the field to being split between field time and office time and I was not enjoying it. In fact, although this was a move in the right direction for me, I felt like someone had let the air out of my tires. Instead of waking up on Monday mornings energized and looking forward to the people I would be interacting with I woke up dreading the day and the solitude.
As with most job changes when one person moves it causes a chain effect and many people in our organization moved into new roles at the same time I did. One person reached out looking for advice on how to adapt to his new situation. As usual, what I found in giving him advice is that I wasn't practicing what I preach. I wasn't living up to my own expectations. I was talking the talking, but certainly not walking the walk. Why wasn't I enjoying work? I wasn't making it enjoyable. It's not the new ro…

What To Do With Frozen Lobster Claws

Happy Valentine's Day!!!  We had our celebration a day early and while grocery shopping I came across frozen Lobster Claws.  I bought them thinking I could just Google directions on how to serve them.  No luck.  If you see them, buy them.  They are so yummy and here's how to prepare them.

How to Detect Email Fraud, Phishing Basics

I would have never thought in a million years that I would be a victim to fraud.  I am not overly
careful, but I am always alert (just ask my son who thought he'd get away with charging $212 on my Visa card).  Last Christmas I was the victim of identity theft.  A clerk at a cell phone store took my information and went to an Apple Store and basically took over my wireless account.  Lesson learned - set up your own phone at home.  Do not let the clerk do it for you in the store.

Going through that process I learned, what I thought at the time, was more than I needed to know about fraud, and specifically about phishing.  Until today, when someone thought I would buy in to their scam.

What is phishing?  Phishing is an attempt to obtain information from you by disguising an email to look like a site you trust.  Trust me, they look real.  There are logos, and links, and terms used that make it look legit, but if you look closer you can catch some details.
