Walmart will continue running the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. promotion through the middle of this month. They are hoping to give out $1.5 million nationwide to end hunger.There are four main ways you can participate in the campaign when you visit any Walmart:
1) Product Purchase: Each participating item purchased at Walmart or through Walmart.com will unlock a donation equivalent to one meal* secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks from each supplier. 1 item = 1 meal ($0.09) up to each supplier's maximum donation. 100% of funds will benefit local member food banks (Second Harvest).
2) Register Giving: customers can donate to their local Feeding America member food bank (Second Harvest ) at the registers of Walmart stores. Donations of $1, $2, $5 or another amount will be accepted. There is no limit to what can be raised at the register! 100% of funds will be directed to local member food banks (yes, Second Harvest, again!).
3) Digital Challenge: Sharing #FightHunger on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and using the campaign Snapchat filter will generate a donation of 10 meals* from Walmart. Walmart has made an initial donation of $1.5 million, which will be split nationally and locally. An additional $1.5M is being made available for the campaign period. The following actions generate a donation and will count towards drawing down the additional gift. 100% of incremental funds will benefit network members and funds will be divided evenly:• Liking, sharing or clicking on Walmart’s Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign content on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter• Creating or sharing content on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #FightHunger
