Doing VIRTUAL good amidst the uncertainty

COVID-19 can bring out the GOOD in all of us!  This week, Atlanta Community Food Bank made the (necessary) decision to avoid gathering thousands of people together for this year's Hunger Walk Run. HOWEVER, the walk is still ON: the event has gone virtual, and that means you do not have to be in Atlanta (or even outside) to participate. As one of our generous donors put it, "[What] an incredible way to make lemonade when life throws us Coronavirus lemons!!" Social distancing does not mean feeling DISTANT: there are so many ways to connect and do good, even while you are hunkered down at home, washing your hands (again):  Join the virtual hunger walk by taking a pic while walking in your neighborhood, rocking your...

Looking for something meaningful to give your loved ones this holiday season? We narrowed down our favorites to make it easier than ever to gift on purpose this year!  GoodSteps flip flops (for your hard to shop for husband/nephew/mom): While we think all of our flops are stylish, comfortable, supportive and versatile, the Original will be a wardrobe staple, and the Nomad is the perfect adventure companion. Grab a gift certificate if you are not sure of shoe size, and as always, there is a customer-directed donation (20% of the purchase price) to fight hunger via Atlanta Community Food Bank or MANA Nutrition.

Just like wine...

We hope to get better with age! Today we turn 3, and we celebrate with one of our favorite birthday quotes: "Don't just count your years, make your years count." Since launching, using funds generated by YOUR GoodSteps purchases, we have provided (via MANA Nutrition) 6,890 days worth of nutrition to malnourished children around the world. A severely malnourished child needs 3 nutritional packets a day for 42-56 days, meaning you have directed the funding to fully treat at least 123 CHILDREN. We have also provided, via Atlanta Community Food Bank, over 58,513 meals to food insecure families, children and seniors throughout Georgia. Given that 1 in 4 children in Georgia are food insecure (they do not know where their next meal is coming from),...
