Lose-A-Palooza & Lose For Good

More than 1 billion people worldwide are hungry. More than 1 billion! Hundreds of millions of them are children. Weight Watchers has joined with Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger to raise money to help combat hunger worldwide.

Lose For Good® is a 7 week campaign running now til October 23, 2010. Weight Watchers members are losing weight every day and during this campaign they are losing weight AND raising money to fight hunger. For every million pounds lost, Weight Watchers is donating $225,000 as well as dollar donations for every "Visit a meeting for free" coupon redeemed.

Tomorrow (September 14) is Lose-A-Palooza, a one-day social media event that Weight Watchers created to benefit Lose For Good® and raise money for Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger. Weight Watchers will donate $1.00 (up to $60,000) for every approved mention, action or acknowledgment related to "Lose For Good" made on blogs, Twitter or Facebook. This is a super-easy way that we can do our part to fight hunger in the world. Many of us are online everyday, updating our blogs, Facebook, or Twitter accounts. In one small mention of Lose For Good, we can raise money to help the cause.

Here's how you can get involved:


Tomorrow I will be posting another blog post featuring "Lose For Good." The easiest thing you can do is comment on my blog post. Be sure to mention the phrase "Lose For Good" in your comment so it counts and earns $1 to fight hunger!!

I also encourage you all to write your own blog posts, mentioning "Lose For Good" and encouraging your readers to comment and continue the chain.


On Facebook, "Like" the Weight Watchers, Share Our Strength or Action Against Hunger Facebook pages. You can also "like" or comment on any of the Weight Watchers "Lose-A-Palooza" posts throughout the day on Sept 14.


On Twitter, Follow @WeightWatchers, @ShareStrength or @acfusa. Also tweet or retweet using the hashtag #LoseForGood!

So please, get involved! With very little effort, we can do our part to help end hunger in our world. No one, especially a child, should go to bed hungry. With Weight Watchers, we can really help to change things. I will be posting again tomorrow, so please come back and comment on my post. And if you have a blog, write your own! I will comment on your blog as well and we'll help benefit Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger! Comment through Twitter and Facebook too! Together we can really make a difference!

One2One Network introduced me to this program and by posting this blog post, I have the opportunity to possibly win a gift card. My opinions and this blog post have not been influenced by the One2One Network or by Weight Watchers.
