Walmart’s Spring Fight Hunger Campaign #WeSparkChange


I don't think about it everyday, but it is becoming more and more apparent to me.  As a teacher, I work with kids everyday and this fact is staring my right in the face and I am unable to deny it any more.  I like to think that as a citizen of a country as great as the United States of America, I can say that none of my fellow citizens are going hungry.  Families not having enough to eat is a … [Read more...]
