Helping SOME help people...

Spring is here! And also, this is our fourth installment of "Helping people help people!" While we've already featured SOME in this series, they have so much going on that we're going to highlight two more ways to help them out.

If you are amongst the ranks of starving artists, you would do well to enter the SOME Gobble Gobble Turkey Challenge. It's SOME's 40th Anniversary, and they are seeking a special 40th Anniversary turkey logo to help us mark this year's Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger. Says SOME:

We like our faithful turkey Bob, but we think that you might be able to design a new turkey logo that's even better. Join the event group on facebook and submit your design proposal right there.

You can also de-friend your competitors, and then re-friend them on May 1, when this contest ends.

Next: if volunteering with Bread for the City isn't enough for you, and you just can't get enough time in front of the computer, then you should help out with SOME’s very cool story collection project. It will be a great opportunity to hear firsthand about poverty in DC and ways that individuals have managed to overcome serious obstacles. Fifteen-minute video interviews will be filmed with 10 individuals, and SOME is seeking a volunteer to help transcribe these interviews. The project runs from April 20 - May 1, and this volunteer work can be done from any location.

As usual, there are great ways to come help at Bread for the City, too. We're excited to see you around the Center soon.
