HR and No Kid Hungry #SHRM14

    Two of our very own NASHRM members are involved in the SHRM Blogging Crew for Annual Conference! Ben Eubanks and Kristina Minyard will be attending the SHRM annual conference and blogging about what they learn and their experience. If you are missing out on the conference they, and the rest of the blogging crew, have you covered. One of the tasks the blogging crew has taken on is a fundraiser each year, before conference starts. Last year the group divided into two teams (Blue vs Green- and yes our two members were on opposite teams competing against each other!) and played a fun game of kick ball. You can see a video the group put together here. This year they will be participating in a slightly different event, but still have an opportunity for everyone else to get involved and show their support-even if you aren't in Orlando for the conference this year. So here is the scoop:

    • Why No Kid Hungry?

    This year, more than 16 million children in America will face hunger. That’s one in five. Share our Strength is working to connect hungry kids with the food they need to grow and thrive. We’re doing our part to connect kids to the healthy food they need every day.  Every dollar we raise will make a huge impact for kids. In fact, just $1 can help connect a child with 10 meals.

    • Who sponsors this event?

    The event is sponsored by Dovetail Software and Dice.com.  They have not only helped with providing the event but are also kicking in some sweet items for our silent auction.  We are honored and appreciative to have them on our side once again!  Last year we topped $11,000 in donations.  We’d like to see that number go up!

    If you'd like to help the blogging crew reach their goal follow this link to donate. At the very least, share this with you friends so they have an opportunity to donate!
