Last Christmas Day, along with the help of two friends, I (Max) was able to hand out 150 cheeseburgers as well as 155 cans of soda throughout poverty stricken cities within Essex County, New Jersey. I used the money given to me by family on Christmas and set off on a journey. It was a last minute decision, not giving me enough time to accomplish this task on the scale I was looking for.
Although, this Christmas Day, I plan on being able to give out 1,000+ cheeseburgers, accompanied by a can of soda per burger. As there is only so much which I can afford independently, I am graciously asking for donations so I can raise enough money to make this possible come Christmas.
While many of us receive presents, many people don't eat on Christmas; or ever for that matter. This Christmas, I want to give people who get constantly neglected something to smile about. Seeing someone's face light up brighter than a Christmas tree because of something that we tend to belittle everyday (food), is an extremely humbling experience. It is an experience I would like to uphold every year moving forward.
As I already have a few volunteers who have offered to so selflessly commit to helping out give out the food, additional support is always encouraged. The more people, the more donations, the more empty stomachs' are filled. **PLEASE** feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments, or if you'd like to be a part of this very special event
