(OKLAHOMA CITY) – Nov. 2, 2016 – During November, 100 percent of sales from a special orange bracelet with a spoon charm, which is made possible by the Rustic Cuff fundraising department, will benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. Orange is the color that represents hunger awareness for food banks across the nation.
“I’m passionate about making a difference and raising awareness about those who are hungry in our state,” said Miss Indian Nations Outstanding Teen 2017 Morgan Money. “My goal is to help as many families, children, and organizations as possible. Working with the fundraising department at Rustic Cuff is something I’m so excited about. This company and its owner has such a heart for others, just as I do. This piece of jewelry is something everyone can wear, share and enjoy all for a great cause.”
Money, a junior at Edmond Memorial High School in Edmond, Okla., has been helping raise awareness about hunger in Oklahoma for the past three years through her work with local pageants.
“One in four children go hungry every day, but this is a real reality for every community throughout our state,” said Morgan. “My mom was food insecure as a child and if it weren’t for the programs offered she and my grandmother would have gone hungry.”
Every Rustic Cuff bracelet sold will provide 32 meals for Oklahomans struggling with hunger. To purchase the bracelet, or for more information about Money’s effort to fight hunger visit https://helpendhungerblog.wordpress.com.
