You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with courage and with the best that you have to give.

It is nice to see these companies give back in this way. We should remember these companies when we make our choices at the supermarket. This donation, along with the hard work from the people at Second Harvest, will go a long way towards securing food for many of the nations hungry. It is also very admirable of the CEO at Arm & Hammer (R) to look at giving back as a privilege and not a duty.

It is very encouraging to see such a big company give back this way. It gives hope that maybe other companies will follow suit during the holidays instead of only thinking about how much they can earn during these times. Often times I think as a society we forget what the holidays are truly about.

It is not everyday that you see big compnies such as Arm and Hammer recognize the growing hunger problems, and actually making efforts to help. Especially, in these economic times where every dollar counts. It shows a lot about Arm and Hammer's character to step up to the plate like this and make efforts towards resolving world hunger.

once again its nice to see another company trying to make a effort to help end world hunger. It shows that there are nice people in the world who actually do have a heart. Because i feel what if we were in their shoes, we would help too so sometimes you have to put yourself second when it comes to helping each other out.

I am pleased that companies and individuals contribute to assist in fighting hunger. I hear all these companies contributing money towards hunger but I cant help to wonder how much money would be enough. It seems that the amount of money is endless towards this issue. How much money will ultimatley be enough to destroy the issue? Even if there was enough money contributed, will the epidemic of hunger even sease to exsist in the world?

in response to Lindsay's comment. i too am relieved to see a large company going out of their way to help. However i can not help but see world hunger as an everlasting struggle that we must first, catch up too and second, stay diligent in the fight against. The money is there. The knowledge is there. The awareness and effort is there. so why doesn't this problem just go away? I believe the answer is in the fact that hunger is the effect of much more complex issues, both political/economical and environmental. and just like with medicine, we are only treating the symptoms and not the cause. It is time that our efforts go toward correcting the cause and in doing so we will correct the symptoms.

It is so good to see a large company such as Arm & Hammer give back. Hunger is a very big issue that needs all the help and support it can get. I wish more companies were as willing to use a little of their money to help those in need. Money may be tight for a lot of people right now but sparing even the smallest amount will make a difference in someone elses life. Every little bit helps and brings the world one step closer to ending Hunger.

This is amazing of Arm and Hammer. If more major corporations would do this and contribute we could really make a dent in world hunger. Individual persons cant afford to do this but major companies can.

Baking soda is such a common household item that is bought daily for cooking and even cleaning needs, for Arm & Hammer (R) to decide to donate some of their profits to help those in need is definitely a selfless act that, I believe, more large brands need to do. When people are buying such items daily, it doesn't hurt to donate some of what you're pretty much guaranteed to earn to those who need it more than you.

Lindsay

Response to Tommy's post...putting the issue in that perspective makes it clearer. For me, and most people the availability of food is a luxury we have. So, its not completely easy to understand the hunger and pain of the individuals that don’t have the basic survival needs met. I completely agree wholeheartedly with Tommy though, "its only treating the symptoms, not the cause." Maybe one day, people will wake up and instead of masking the problem, just take the time out to correct it once and for all.

I feel that it is a great thing that Arm & Hammer is doing to show there recognition of world hunger. I hope that more companies follow in there footsteps and begin doing exactly what Arm & Hammer is doing with certain products!! This alone isn't enough to put a stop to hunger around the world. However, if we act together, we could eventually put a stop to world hunger!

Whitney Rice

It is very good to see companies giving back to communities in need. I hope more people will find out about what Arm & Hammer so when they get to the supermarket, people can purchase it in case of other brands. It also helps that Arm & Hammer is used in most households so it is purchase by quite a few people.

With other companies seeing what Arm & Hammer is doing, hopefully it will encourage other companies doing it as well. Malnutrition is such a large problem in the work, any large companies, like Arm & Hammer, can help by just donating like they did. Any amount of money will just take one step closer to ending world hunger.

Molly Martin

I really respect Arm & Hammer for giving back. Big companies make a lot of money and most of them don't realize they should give back to the community that has given them success by buying the product the company produces. For every one pound box of Arm & Hammer sold they will donate proceeds to the second harvest foundation. I think this is a great plan to raise money. Church & Dwight Co. are giving 50,000 dollars and will provide over 100,000 pounds of food to help feed the hungry. "We know the urgency of the hunger epidemic in America and would like to help bring attention to this cause." I think that statement alone shows how much this company is putting into helping the cause.

What interested me about the Civil Rights Movements was when Rosa Parks reefsud to get up from her seat to a white man. This was intriguing because this is the topic that I'm most familiar with. Plus, I wanted to research more in depth about this topic. Furthermore, it had a significant impact on the Civil Rights Movement. Rosa Park's rejection to move to a different seat, sent a message to everybody, that black people deserves the same rights that white people had. In addition, without her courage, others wouldn't even think of protesting for their rights. She sparked the fight against segregation, and most importantly, she did it peacefully.

The research that we did on the civil riht was all a litlte hard to take in. To see the horrible things that happened the blacks. The one that I found most interesting was the litlte rock nine. That one interesting because it showed that even the blacks couldn't get to school with out help from the army. Which was shocking. It showed that some southern states didn't care about the law and still did everything their way. I think after this event happened that people were starting to say there going a litlte to far and need to stop now.

Its amazing how many peolpe will say they are "starving," especially kids but I have been blessed and know that I haven't had real hunger pains. That's part of the reason I'm happy to contribute to helping others have food on their plates. There is always something that can be done to lend a hand and this is the season where need is all around us as temps drop. Thanks for the reminder.

I very much enjoyed the rsecareh for the civil rights timeline. It allowed me to get to know all the different types of events from long ago. Out of the six topics I rsecareh I found Rosa Parks story to be the most interesting. It really caught my attention of how strong of a person she was to be able to do what she did. This event impacted the civil rights time because it started the boycott, and because of that it lead segregation to decrease slowly for the better. Without the boycott it probably would have took much longer for segregation to stop then how long it already took.

It was fascinating to do raceersh on my Civil Rights timeline. I learned the basics about Civil Rights in the past, but this raceersh elaborated on that. After all of the topics that I've raceershed, I think that the signing of the Civil Rights act by president Johnson was the most interesting. The act that he was signing would allow African-Americans to have a job, and receive proper education. I think the most interesting about what Johnson did is that after the he signed the act, he basically became a hero in African-Americans eyes. To conclude my paragraph I had a really fun time doing this project. Thanks Ms Matos.
