There are many ways people can come up with to feed the hungry in the society, Jesus of Nazareth performed a miracle by feeding thousand as of people we cannot be able to replicate this miracle but we can create a way to feed the hungry. What if you could feed 150 people with 20 dollars? People may probably spread this joy of feeding the hungry since it could be so cheap. Extreme couponing has been utilized in parts of the United States by a couple of individuals to increase money to feed the hungry in the society.
Lauren puryear used to feed the poor from the donations she got as well as from her pocket money, she had a non-profit organization called ‘for the love of others’, the money she got in this organization was not enough to feed as many people as she wanted, but when she decided to adopt extreme couponing she is now able to feed more hungry people. Lauren had an objective of feeding 30000 individuals before her 30th birthday celebration and she is practically accomplishing this since this September 2016 to march 2017 she has gained the capacity to feed 26000 individuals with just 500 dollars. Lauren recruits her friends and family in this activity, she spends only 5 to 10hours every week when snipping coupons to feed thousands of people in a month, since extreme couponing only takes a short time.
Other organizations have also taken up extreme couponing after noticing how Lauren was successful, an example of these organizations is southern branch of the New Jersey Food Bank in Atlantic city and The Touch feeding Ministry in Asbury run by Reverend William Williams III.
Jerry Ascione got an idea concerning extreme couponing in 2002 where he saw a coupon for Walgreens in a free classifieds paper which was expensive than the price of the item, the stores policy was when checking out you were required to pay the difference. He had a thought that the cash he would make from this, he would give it the hungry people in the society. Jerry sees hunger as a huge problem and wants to do something about it, during his free time he drives around giving out food, water and even money. Jerry’s faith in mankind has been extraordinary, he recollects a period when he gave somebody food, and this individual shared this food with another person before eating that food.
You too can feed the poor without having to be an extreme couponer, you can just take a step and feed someone who is in need and your life will never be the same again.
