My family is blessed. We’re not always able to buy the things we want, but we’re almost always able to have what we need. There are many, many families and people throughout the nation for whom that is just not the case. Having been in a position to need help in the past, my family and I know what it feels like, and it’s not fun. With the holidays quickly approaching, that feeling is likely to be greatly exaggerated.
These people, in many cases have to rely on nonprofit organizations like churches and food banks just to put food on the table. But of course, food banks don’t just magically appear when there are folks in need. The need help in order to provide for the needs of the people they serve. Food banks always need nonperishable food, but they also need personal care items. While my family is able to be selective and buy only personal care products that are made with organic and largely natural ingredients, when you’re in need, almost any assistance is a good thing.
This is where Unilever comes in.
Unilever is committed to donating more than two million meals to families in need with Feeding America and every item on your shopping list counts. Show your support by adding Unilever brands to your cart next time you shop. Together we can help to Cross Off Hunger. This program is part of Unilever’s overall goal to become a more sustainable company and help one billion people improve their health and well-being.
We can each do our part to help their cause. Visit MakingLifeBetter.com to learn about hunger in our nation, including what food banks really need, how they operate and where you can find banks in your area, so you can offer informed assistance.
You can also simply continue to use your favorite Unilever products, including family favorites like Ragu, Skippy, Lipton, Benn & Jerry’s and Q-Tip. Our family uses Ragu pasta sauce, Breyers ice cream and Country Crock spread pretty regularly, and my stepsons asked for Axe products for Christmas.
In the next few weeks, I will purchase $50 worth of Unilever products to do my part and share with you what I bought and why (or why not). I’ll also learn all I can about what the food banks in my area actually need so that when my family donates, we’ll be fulfilling actual needs rather than perceived ones, and I’ll share ways that I believe all of us, including Unilever, can lead more sustainable lives. Because I believe that we can make things #BetterTogether
