A really easy way for all of us to help fight hunger

Weight Watchers has a campaign going on right now called Lose for Good. From September 5 to October 23, 2010, Weight Watchers participants can help provide food for hungry people around the world and here at home, through losing weight and participating in other activities.

But if you're not in the market for a weight loss campaign, you can still help out. On September 14, 2010, you can participate in Lose-A-Palooza. On that day, Weight Watchers will track every mention of Lose for Good that is made in social media (blogs, Twitter, Facebook and Fourquare) will donate a dollar to Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger.

I'll post a reminder on the 14th, but make a note and get ready to blog, tweet and Facebook for a great cause!

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, but as thanks for my time in writing about this campaign, was entered into a prize drawing.
