How Many Hungry People Can We Feed With This Tree?

No, I’m not going to try to feed this actual tree to hungry people. Instead,  I will create bowls, pens, wine stoppers, cutting boards, carvings and a variety of other items that, if people want them, they can make a donation to The Outreach Program to help pay for meals to feed hungry people. And Outreach meals are only .25 cents a piece so we can feed a LOT of people from our burly log!

As I stood looking at this burly log trying to figure out what to do with it, I asked myself the question that I’ve asked in every speech I’ve ever given about hunger:

How Can You Use Your Career or Hobby to Feed the Hungry?

That’s when the idea hit me:

We can feed hungry people with this burly log!

I say we because numerous people asked if they could buy a bowl or whatever I make from this. So, yes, you can. Here’s how it will work:

  • When I create something, I will post in on here and various social media outlets
  • I will put a suggested price on it (which will include the price of shipping)
  • You can make a tax-deductible donation to The Outreach Program
  • I will create and keep a count of every meal that is funded through the donations

Here’s what those beautiful burls look like on the inside!

Stay tuned for the first turning! It should show up in the next couple of weeks!

    Do we get to bid or is it first come first serve?
