I had a an idea to help the poor and hungry by hosting tournaments that drew in pinball players with the idea of donating all tournament entry fees to a local food bank. Others believed in the idea, and quickly joined forces with me.
Now we are in December 2013, and 14 cities have hosted Flip Off Hunger events. T
We raised $9,572 as of 12/16/2013. Based on a $1 donation creating 3 meals, Flip Off Hunger has donated over 28,716 meals!!
I am hoping that we can push past $8,000. If you are interested in adding to the total, simply donate to a local food bank and send me a copy of the receipt. I will add your donation to the Flip Off Hunger fund.
We smashed our goal of $8,000. Next year, our goal will be $11,000!!
Next year, I hope to organize even more cities. This was a smashing success and it was a great feeling helping families in need. I want to personally thank every host that stepped up and organized a local event. I also want to thank Josh Sharpe and the IFPA for recognizing the value of Flip Off Hunger and granting each city a full value IFPA Event. And a special shout out to Jared Guynes (Bakushan) for taking his time to create the Flip Off Hunger Logo. Without the support of the pinball community, this would have been a single event that raised a few hundred dollars for the hungry. Together, we raised thousands!
Thank you all who hosted or attended a Flip Off Hunger very, very much!!
