A new $10,000 challenge for the new year

| January 4, 2011

The new year has brought us an amazing new opportunity, and we need your help!

Yesterday, the Gene & Marlene Epstein Humanitarian Fund* issued us a challenge: they will donate $10,000 to MAZON in support of anti-hunger efforts in your community, but only if we raise a matching amount within three weeks. That is, if we do not raise $10,000 by January 24, 2011, they will not make their $10,000 donation.

We are grateful for any donation you may have recently given, but we ask you to consider donating to MAZON now so that we do not miss out on this opportunity. A gift of any amount will move us closer to the meeting their challenge, and in turn, help us feed even more hungry people in your community.

If you prefer to send in a check, please note EPSTEIN MATCH on your check.

If you prefer to call, please tell whomever you speak with that you want your donation to count towards the EPSTEIN MATCH.

*Gene Epstein was recently named HuffPost’s ‘Greatest Person of the Day’ for his recent venture, Hire Just One, through which he has pledged to donate $1,000 to charity every time a small business hires an unemployed person, up to $250,000.
