I’m proud to say that Oprah Winfrey’s Live Your Best Life charity walk has been a huge SUCCESS! Share Our Strength, the charity “H. Luiz Presents…” has been affiliated with since the begining of The Blog, has raised over $60,000.00 for the No Kid Hungry campaign. We could not have done it with all you supporters.
Three top fundraisers were “quoted” on Share Our Strength’s website: Michele Mudrick, Carol C., and Yours truly, H. Luiz Martinez. Marla Lowe was the top supporter, raising over $10,000.00 for the cause. Click here to see Our quotes at Share Our Strength’s website

“I’m a strong believer that every child (especially in the U.S.) should never go hungry and we ALL must do what we can to end this travesty. My child [Jonathan] and I used to make full lunches (sandwiches, water, fruit) and give them to the hungry people in the communities of Jersey City, NJ. Advocacy to end hunger is something we have been doing as a family for years.” - H. Luiz Martinez
On behalf of the (less hungry) Kids of the No Kid Hungry campaign, THANK YOU!!-THANK YOU!!-THANK YOU!!
