93 Dollars Inspires Free Meals for Thousands
Menlo Park, Calif.
Carolee Levick Hazard was in the checkout line at Trader Joe's last year when she saw a woman ahead of her searching for her wallet and leaving the store without groceries. In the parking lot, she spotted a frazzled Jenni Ware and offered to put Ware's $207 bill on her credit card. "It blew me away," says Ware, who had left her wallet at another store.
The next day, Hazard, 44, got a check for $300, along with a note from Ware suggesting she treat herself to a massage. "I wasn't comfortable keeping [the extra money]," recalls Hazard. So she shared her story on Facebook and announced she'd match Ware's $93 and donate $186 to a food bank; by the next day a dozen friends had made $93 pledges.
With that, Hazard started the 93 Dollar Club (facebook.com/93dollarclub), through which people donate in increments of 93-from $9,300 given by Jill Grossman, 47, a Hillsborough, Calif., mom, to Minnesota college student Lucina Mendez's $9.30 to the 93-cent gift from Hazard's 9-year-old neighbor Madeline Campbell. A year after launching, the effort has raised nearly $110,000, funding 220,000 meals for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. "What Carolee has done," says Kathryn Jackson, the food bank's CEO, "is spectacular."
