Sat., May 10: Leave food to help your mail carrier "Stamp Out Hunger"

I’m still pretty fixated on the disaster in Burma, which I blogged about earlier in the week. But with something so big, I wanted to balance blog space with something small and manageable.

Much closer to home for those of us in the U.S., Saturday, May 10 is annual Stamp Out Hunger day, when mail carriers collect non-perishables to help feed the hungry. Participating couldn’t be easier: just leave canned goods and other non-breakable items in a bag next to your mailbox. The Harlem Globetrotters break it down for us (I thought we needed a lighter note today).

Today’s mitzvah: Pick up some soup, pasta, cereal or other non-perishables at the store to
leave for your mail carrier on Saturday, May 10, Stamp Out Hunger day.
