Suggesting a Public/Corporate Partnership To Feed The Hungry
Putting our money where their mouths are.
You have seen them in the street, in the papers, and on the media.
You have donated to your church or other charities to make a difference for the truly needy.
Here is a new idea for a public/corporate partnership to further tackle the problem faced by the nation's hungry here, as well as the hungry elsewhere:
I suggest you create a Non-Refundable coupon, that people who want to give to someone claiming to be in need of food can purchase and give such persons.
McDonalds(R) thereby demonstrates compassion for the needy, allows the donors to do so as well, and ends up with a low net cost, besides possibly increasing foot traffic/purchases by customers coming to purchase a few of the Non-Refundable coupons.
While possible restrictions as to the number of such coupons which can be purchased at one time might need to be considered, McDonalds(R) by sponsoring such a program allows the donors to know that their expenditure will actually be used for the claimed "need food" purpose (not liquor, dope, or a scam) and McDonalds(R) can add that "any profits on these specific Non-Refundable coupons will be donated to charity."
This proposes a public/corporate partnership project that would make McDonalds(R) original founder and all McDonalds(R) staff, past and present, proud.
Sincerely, A McDonalds(R) Customer"
