Rock For FoodShare with The Boss!
An old school friend, Robyn, brought the cause FoodShare Toronto to my attention. There are many causes all over the world, but to help others, I think you first have to have a strong foundation and that starts with making sure all local people especially children have the opportunity to receive healthy food. FoodShare has teamed up with Bruce Springsteen aka: The Boss to offer an online auction for great tickets to his concert in Toronto on May 7, 2009, a backstage meet and greet and a matching contribution of up to $50,000, by Bruce Springsteen himself.
So if you’re a big Springsteen fan or you just want to help a good cause, put in a bid and you might just get the opportunity of a lifetime! Either way, share this your friend, family and colleagues and give others in need a chance to eat good, healthy food and wipe out hunger.
