Click to help the hungry in Oklahoma
Want to help the hungry in Oklahoma? This might be the simplest way ever. Walmart is having a competition called “Fighting Hunger Together.” (This isn’t one of those things where your friends tell you to share something so that you can all get a $100 gift card. It’s, you know, actually real.) Walmart is giving $1 million to the food bank that has the most likes by the end of the year, and each of the five runners-up get $100,000 each. This is how you can help:
- Click here for Oklahoma City and western Oklahoma. Click here for Tulsa and eastern Oklahoma. Or click here for a list of all 100 communities in the country.
- Tell other people.
So here’s just some general info about hunger, according to the campaign. Nationwide, about 9.2 percent of families can’t afford regular meals. The rate is twice that in Oklahoma. In the Oklahoma City area, it’s 21.1 percent. In Tulsa, the rate is 20.1 percent.
So get to clicking and liking. Tulsa is in the sixth place right now – high enough to win a $100,000 grant. But Oklahoma City needs a bigger boost. It’s only No. 14, which still isn’t too bad on the list of 100. You can like both. (And, if you’re like me, you can like more places, too. I liked Arkansas because it’s my home state.)
P.S. Thanks to the folks at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma for the heads up!
