Just got a link to this via Twitter from Cammy:

I'm not a big fan of Tyson Foods, but they're supposedly donating 35 pounds (translating to 140 meals) for each pledge at this website. If the goal of 1,000 people taking the online pledge is reached, a semi-trailer filled with 140,000 meals will arrive at the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas in Austin during the SXSW ’09 Interactive Festival.

Pledge to end hunger.

And for you local folks, while we're on the topic of giving, please check out Project Bread (who sponsor the annual Walk for Hunger) and the Greater Boston Food Bank.

And for you non-local folks, I'm sure you can find something local to you guys, right? Or maybe this can help.

Thank you for helping us spread the word!

Today is a big day - we're making our big push to reach 3,000 pledges. This will help us fill two more trucks. We can't decide where to send them until they're loaded.

Can you help us by:
- signing The Pledge at
- use Facebook, Twitter, and email to ask others to join you

Thanks again. Let's fill the trucks today!
