Words That Inspire #5

 "The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in". Morrie Schwartz


When I think of these words, I see this manifested everyday here in Hawaii. One of those kindred spirits is Rose Acevedo who is a board member of the Sierra Club. Here's what she's up to feed our local food bank in Hawaii.

Pepsi Co. Refresh Project is offering a million dollars every month for great ideas that support local communities.

My idea, FRUITBUSTERS, to help feed the hungry in East Hawaii was approved by Pepsi on May 1st.  The goal of FRUITBUSTERS is to develop a small crew who will rescue all the ripe fruit from trees whose owners can’t do their own picking.  This abundance of fruit will then be donated to food banks and meal programs in our area.

We need your support, so please log on below to vote. Everyone who registers can vote EVERY DAY until May 31. 
hank you for your vote,

Rose Acevedo
Picking fruit, that would otherwise just fall to the ground and go uneaten, and donating to our local Foodbank  is a wonderful idea.  Please help us by voting for this project below.

  1. Heisann!

    A good idea, here in Norway I see more and more trees full of fruit in January. The apples turns moldy hanging from the branches. It´s a pity, because fruit here is an important food source in the dark period. We must import a other kinds of fruit.
