Use your American Express this January to ensure no kid goes hungry

13 Jan

No Kid Hungry is a vital organization that provides food and chances at new beginnings for children throughout the nation and it’s incredibly easy to help them this January.  All you have to do is register your American Express card here, then use that AmEx at any restaurant that accepts their cards by January 31.  When you do that, American Express will donate $1 for each purchase you make up to a $1,000,000.  If you take a look on the No Kid Hungry site you can see how far that money will go.  For example, they invested $5,000 recently that led to 12,000 meals for hungry children in Arizona…so imagine what a million dollars can do.

Which restaurants will you be checking out to help out?  Let us know down below…
