Go Eat

Everybody likes to eat, right? Well, did you know that just by eating at select restaurants, you can help kids with cancer? Yes!

First up, for the month of September, Chili's restaurants around the country are raising awareness of childhood cancer through the Create-a-Pepper campaign. Diners are encouraged to donate $1 or more to create a pepper coloring page to be displayed in the restaurant. Through that simple act, since 2002, Chili's has raised over $40 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - with the 10-year goal of $50 million right on the horizon. In addition to the pepper pages, on Monday, September 24th, Chili's will be donating 100% of the day's net proceeds to the campaign. I'd say that's doing something, wouldn't you?

And for our local Friends of Georgia, Saturday is CureSearch Night at Cypress Grill (insert Cajun yell here)! Twenty percent of the night's receipts will be donated to the Austin CureSearch Walk, so go! And eat up!

And don't forget to watch the Stand Up to Cancer telecast tonight! Even though I won't be with the Momma delegation in the audience, my friend and FIERCE 46 Mommas ally (and Dr. Ben Warren on Grey's Anatomy) Jason George will be. This guy walks the walk, y'all, and we so appreciate the support!
