Together With David Arquette We Can Help End Child Hunger In The US

David Arquette It's All Good

When it comes to celebrities fronting for a cause I am often skeptical. I figure they’re being paid and it’s just another job, not that they’re really behind the cause. When one of the women I follow on Twitter contacted me about It’s All Good, a nationwide program to help feed 100,000 children here in the US, I knew I needed to share it. And when I read how involved its celebrity spokesperson, David Arquette, really is I felt comfortable sharing this with you.

It hurts my heart that there are children here in the US that go hungry because their parents just can’t make ends meet. I know many parents like me feel the same way. EcoMom, an online retailer specializing in providing healthy products for families, feels that way too. And because they have an amazing company and believe in social good, they asked David (hope he doesn’t mind I’m on a first name basis with him already!) if he would help them get healthy good to local families. And he didn’t just say yes, write a check or show up for a few hours of shooting video. He showed up and helped with his hands and his heart.

We can help too! For every purchase every single purchase made on ecomom.com, no matter how big or small, the company will provide a U.S. child, between the ages of 4 and 18 months (we’re talking babies!), with key nutritious meals necessary for healthy growth and development. Simply put: for every purchase, EcoMom will feed healthy nutritious meals from Plum Organics to one child for a day. EcoMom has set their goals high, and are committed to feeding at least 100,000 hungry children in the U.S. this year. According to Dr. Alan Greene, MD, FAAP, Founder of Dr.Greene.com and ecomom board member, “The first year of solid foods is arguably the most important in our lives.  Babies and toddlers’ growing bodies and brains are built from the food they eat, giving them healthy amounts of great food is one of the bests gifts we can give.” EcoMom’s first food partner since the launch of the site, Plum Organics CEO Neil Grimmer adds,  “This program reinforces Plum’s mission to get better food to all kids, we are excited to partner  with ecomom to get our high quality food to little ones in need.”

EcoMom has products for the whole family so it’s pretty easy to find something you’d normally buy elsewhere and buy it from them to support It’s All Good.  Thanks for taking the time to learn about this program and helping out if you can.
