It doesn’t matter how busy you are or what kind of budget you have. You can still do a lot to help fight hunger during Hunger Action Month throughout September.
If you have children, you can often involve them in simple service projects. In the Moms Fighting Hunger Blog Hop collection below, you’ll find lots of ideas for involving your children. But even if your children are too young to be involved, there’s a lot you can do simply through social media.
Following are some ideas you can use to make a difference through social media alone.
How You can Help through Social Media
Sign the No Kid Hungry Pledge
You can add force to the fight against childhood hunger by taking the pledge to end childhood hunger and joining Team No Team Hungry.
Orange is the color for hunger awareness, and there are a number of ways you can “go orange.”
If you’re a mom, you can join us through Moms Fighting Hunger. Follow the Moms Fighting Hunger Facebook page for inspiration and ways you can help. You can add a Moms Fighting Hunger Twibbon badge to your Facebook or Twitter profile photo. This is what my @DebChitwood Twitter and Facebook profiles look like during September.
But there are other ways you can go orange to draw attention to Hunger Action Month. You can download images for your Facebook profile and pages from No Kid Hungry or Feeding America. (Check out how I’ve gone orange on the Bits of Positivity Facebook page.)

Share Resources and Events Online to Help Fight Hunger
You can help fight hunger in September and through the year by following Moms Fighting Hunger on both Facebook and Pinterest. You can even help earn money to fight hunger through a number of the campaigns. At various times, businesses will donate money for each tweet or share online.
I invite you to share my free graphics. If you’d like a graphic to promote the fight against hunger, please feel free to use any of my free printables. Of course, please link to my blog so others can find the graphics, too.
