Couponing for Community

As many of you already know, I am a firm believer in Giving Back.  From May 8-14 please join me and couponers all across the country by using your awesome buying skills to make a large donation to a non-profit of your choosing.  This is a weeklong event where bloggers and readers use their skills to donate as many free and inexpensive items as they can to local organizations.

Here is the info found on the facebook page from Kaley:

We invite you to join this community by using your couponing skills to give to a homeless shelter, food pantry, or a friend in need during the week of May 8-14!

What is the Goal?
This year we are setting a goal of 10,000 items donated in one week’s time. We invite you to track your giving during the week of May 8-14 and then come back here to share your story. We'll even have a giving tracker to tally up everyone's efforts!!

Why May 8-14?
We are the kind of people who find ways to give all year long. But we have chosen to set aside one week each year to ‘flex our couponing muscles’ for GOOD and show the impact we can have when we work together. We also chose this week because May 14 is national Stamp out Hunger Day, so giving can be as easy as putting a bag of non-perishable food items out by your mailbox on Saturday, May 14. Check with your local Post Office to find out if they are participating at Stamp out Hunger.
If you have additional questions about this united giving campaign, contact Kaley at Cha-Ching on a Shoestring
