Help End Childhood Hunger in America. Yes, America.

Many of my most prized childhood memories while growing up in Iowa involve food. I think back to Thanksgiving, sweet corn days, and other family events symbolized by a home cooked meal. I was lucky that even when times were tough; there was always food for our family to eat.

It is hard to imagine growing up in America being hungry. One in five children in the U.S. struggles with hunger. Kids tell us what hunger feels like:

Pay It Forward with a Free iPad2 

After making a donation to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry charity, I was entered in a drawing to win an iPad2 from Cinnabon, Inc. Surprisingly, I was the lucky winner. Now I have the opportunity to pay it forward with your help.

Post a comment below as to who you think deserves this iPad2 and why (less than 500 words please). Comments must be posted by 5:00pm (Eastern) on Monday, October 10th, 2011 to be considered.

Please note that this is not an official sweepstakes and not affliated with my employer. I'm personally selecting one person's recommendation on who should get this iPad2. The person who receives the 3G 32G White Verizon iPad2 will be responsible for all charges to get it set up with Verizon Wireless.

Thanks again to Cinnabon for this fun way to pay it forward.
