“Since becoming a mom last year, my life has changed more than I could have ever imagined,” she wrote in a blog on the No Kid Hungry website. "On one hand, I have never loved anyone more in my life. On the other hand, I’ve never felt more worry or responsibility. I want more than anything for my son Julian to be happy and healthy, but I worry: what if I can’t make it happen? How do I protect and prepare Julian for the future?
“Mothers and fathers ask themselves these questions every day. For some, the answers are easy to find. For others, just making sure their children have something on their plate is a daily challenge. This is unacceptable. No parent should have to worry that their child won’t have the nutrition she or he needs to thrive. No child should have to carry the burden and fear of hunger.
“I believe that in a country like the United States, no child should go hungry. That’s why this January I made it my New Year’s resolution to support efforts to end childhood hunger in America.
“This year, I’m asking my friends, family and followers to join me in my support of No Kid Hungry. Whether it’s through donations, volunteering, or raising our voices, each one of us has something to give in efforts to get food to the kids who need it most.
“So in honor of a new year and new goals, I ask you to challenge yourself to do something to make a difference for children in need.”
