A few weeks ago, I was asked if I would like to participate (on the behalf of SJ) in a campaign for Weight Watchers and their partners, Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger, called Lose for Good. Being that I love Weight Watchers, and LOVE helping out good causes, of course I said YES!
Last year was the debut of the Lose for Good campaign and it produced AMAZING results. Members lost over 4 MILLION pounds, Weight Watchers donated $1 million to charities focused on fighting hunger, and 1,500,000 pounds of food to local food banks! The funds contributed by Weight Watchers represent the difference between life and death for up to 6,000 children! That is HUGE!
“Last year, thanks to Weight Watchers and its members, more than 50 local organizations throughout the country were able to continue and extend their afterschool snacks and summer meals programs, impacting nearly 250,000 children and their families.” –Bill Shore, Founder and Executive Director, Share Our Strength
The Lose For Good campaign will kick-off on August 30th and run until October 17th! We are so excited to be a part of this wonderful campaign and hope to make it even bigger this year! Our new challenge for Shrinking Jeans will begin on August 30th, and not only will we be doing good for ourselves, we will be helping others along the way! We hope you will join us in making a difference!
