This weekend StickerGiant is proud to be official sticker sponsors for an event right in our home town of Longmont, CO. Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and the event is entering it's 10th year organized by non-profit Our Center.
The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create unique and handcrafted bowls.
Longmont attendees are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
It is the collective genius of all the people involved that has made Empty Bowls what it has become. Events have now taken place across the United States and in at least a dozen other countries. Many millions of dollars have been raised and donated to hunger-fighting organizations. We could never have imagined all the things people have done or all the ways the project has touched people.
It's worth finding the time to attend this weekend. Your participation will have a profound impact and you'll be able to get your hands on their colorful event stickers printed by yours truly!
