There is already a drive set up to support Food for Freedom on the YouGiveGoods website to which anyone can donate food of their choice. YouGiveGoods will deliver all of the food donated online on the “big day” – Saturday, May 25th, 2013, to be counted towards the world record attempt.
This massive food drive will positively impact the lives of the 82,000+ citizens currently living in poverty in Northeastern Wisconsin. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percent of children under the age of five in Wisconsin living in poverty increased from 13% in 2007 to 23% in 2010.
When asked what motivated Danny to want to try to beat this World Record he replied, “To provide people that don’t have the luxuries we have with the food and nutrition they need. As far as the record goes, records are made to be broken…and I’d go to the ends of the earth to break this one.”
Anyone can help Danny and his team reach their goal by visiting www.YouGiveGoods.com/FoodforFreedom.
