I’m working as an ambassador for Child Hunger Ends Here this season, and was so pleased to see that ConAgra Foods was once again sponsoring Blissdom to help promote the cause. This year, for every tweet during the conference tagged with the #childhunger hashtag, two meals were donated (five during the ConAgra Foods sponsored Girl’s Night Out party).
Anyone watching the Blissdom tweets could easily see the excitement over the meals donations. The incredibly popular keynote speakers Scott Stratten and Jon Acuff tweeted to their followers, and Jon’s tweet alone was retweeted over 1,200 times. In total, the #childhunger tweets during Blissdom resulted in 186,426 meals donated – amazing.
On Friday night, ConAgra Foods sponsored a fabulous Girls’ Night Out event featuring Blissdom favorite (and the Voice finalist) Chris Mann and Glee star Amber Riley. They were both fantastic – such powerful voices. We also had the opportunity during the conference to watch a compelling video about the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. Have some tissues handy – it’s a really strong message.
