it's here: Couponing for Community!

Me blogging about couponing is kind of like Lady Ga-Ga blogging vegetarian dress patterns, but I'm related to the founder of this cause and figure I could jump on board this year. 

And so....

I'm excited to share with you about Couponing for Community 2012.  It's an opportunity to join with couponers nationwide to GIVE BIG.  Simply use your couponing skills to give to a homeless shelter, food pantry, or a friend in need during the week of May 6-12, 2012.   Then head to the Couponing for Community Facebook page to add the number of your donation items to the tally.  (We love pictures too!)

The goal this year?  30,000 items donated  in one week's time!  Last year, we blew away our goal, and we know that together we can do it again!

May 12 is also national Stamp out Hunger Day, so giving can be as easy as putting a bag of non-perishable food items out by your mailbox on Saturday, May 12.

In the meantime, head over and 'like' the Couponing for Community Facebook page to get connected with other couponers in the C4C community.  Then start setting aside items to give during the week of May 6-12.  I'll be sure to post a reminder when the time gets closer!  You are not going to want to miss this chance to flex our couponing muscles for GOOD!

It probably goes without saying that you don't have to use coupons to donate food.  You're more than welcome to just plain old donate food and hygiene items any where during the week of May 6-12. (but if you want some great couponing tips, may I recommend Cha-Ching On A Shoestring?!?)

Hope you can come join the fun!
