A Thank You and a Call to Action

I hope this finds you well. I'm writing to join Zachary Bos in inviting you to participate in and support a special event this coming Sunday. 

The Status Report on Hunger in Massachusetts notes that in 2010, 10.8 percent of households were food insecure. This is the highest rate recorded in the Commonwealth since this data was first collected in 1995, according to the Project Bread website. 

After two meal-packing events last year, this Sunday we will package more meals than ever -- 40,000 -- just in time for Thanksgiving. But in order to do so, we need to raise $10,000 (that's 25 cents per meal!) before then. Please consider making a donation to this incredibly important cause:
  • Donate to the Humanist Chaplaincy via PayPal online (please write "VIA event" in the "special instructions" box). Please note that this drive is separate from our annual year-end fund drive, and all of the money goes to Kids Care for the cost of food. 
  • Send a check payable to "Outreach, Inc. - Kids Care" to Harvard Chaplains, The Memorial Church, One Harvard Yard, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138.
  • Bring your contribution to the service event on November 18.
In addition to donating to support the costs of the meals, please join us in packing them on Sunday, November 18, anytime from 12-6pm at 59 Shepard Street Cambridge, MA 02138. This is a great all-ages event (bring kids!) and a wonderful way to put your values into action and demonstrate to others that every day countless Americans are doing good for others without religion. Read more on Facebook here. (

Thank you so much for your time and consideration, and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving! 

Best regards, 
Chris Stedman
