Dear Hunger Helpers!
Are you ready to regularly eat One Less Meal and donate that meal to help others? Are you ready to take a stand and help your neighbors?
Beginning this month and on the 13th of every month we invite you to participate in the Double D Diner’s “One Less Meal For You!”
When I originally “opened” the Double D I thought “how cool would it be if we could get people to take a moment and think about something most people take for granted. Hunger. How cool would it be if we could get as many people as possible to eat ONE LESS MEAL on a regular basis and donate the cost of that meal to help fight hunger.”
Most likely you don’t know what hunger is. You might say you’re hungry at times, but seriously. Couldn’t we all do with One Less Meal? Do you really know what hunger is?
Would you be willing to give up your breakfast today and donate one instead? Even if your breakfast is just a cup of coffee.
How about lunch? Could you do with out lunch? Even if your lunch is just a can of soup.
That late night snack?
1 in 6 people go to bed hungry at night. We owe it to help our friends and neighbors. Join us! You won’t starve. Trust me. I know some of you. I hope to see you drop by the diner on March 13th. http://DoubleDDiner.org or http://OneLessMeal.org.
You do your part and we’ll do our part to make sure our HungerHero delivers your donations to those in need. Our big crazy dream is to have 1,000,000 people donating the cost of a diner meal each month. Thank you for helping us.
P.S. DON’T FORGET TO INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO JOIN YOU!
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Earlene Babcock, and I am a waitress here at the Double D Diner. I used to work down the road at FLAPJACKS for Earl, but it’s rough when you’re dating the boss. Earl was throwing his weight around (which was no small thing!) and I just wasn’t getting the respect I deserved. So when Clyde asked me to help run the Double D, I jumped at the chance. Talk about jumping from the frying pan to the fire! Now Clyde thinks he’s the boss of me.
People think it’s easy to be a waitress. Just look pretty, smile all day and keep pouring the coffee, but there is a whole lot more to it than that…even with the looking pretty part. People think I just wake up looking this good, but the truth is, there is some work involved. Here at the Double D, I’m serving people all day long, trying to keep Clyde in line, and on top of that- I end up being a therapist to half the people that walk in here. Some kind of drama shows up and sits right down at the counter almost every day.
Believe it or not, even I have to blow off steam sometimes. Usually, I just go out with Wanda and we squawk about this and that, but she’s taken up with Russell Buckingham again (I am keeping my mouth shut this time, but I’ll tell you that it is a mistake of the monumentable kind!) and she’s not always around when I need her. I try talking to Clyde sometimes (we actually are friends), but it’s like talking to the wall. He’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer…..
I was watching TV the other night and was hearing about how these celebrities have their own blogs where they just write down any and everything to anyone who’ll read it. Like a diary I guess. So I decided…Why not? I will make a blogary of my own just like they do, and we’ll just see what happens.
Hello? Can you hear me? Is anybody out there? Anybody getting this?
