Heads up for those of you on Facebook. City Harvest is a nonprofit food rescue organization that picks up excess food from restaurants, caterers, cafeterias, and other suppliers, then delivers it to the hungry in New York.
I like my charity to be local, too, but if you're on Facebook, take a minute before you check out for the weekend and suggest their page to every one of your friends! They're getting $5 per new friend until 7/15 [from SOMEBODY ELSE], and that $5 will buy 18 POUNDS of food for hungry people.
Giving to charity is oftentimes FREE, and this is one of those times. JUST DO IT!
