PRLogSep. 2, 2014CHARLOTTE, N.C.Poets for Hunger© launches its 2014-2015 campaign to collect Box Tops for Education labels to donate to a local school. This not-for-profit mission is designed for poets to help bring greater awareness to the issues of hunger through their community. Such issues include eradicating the lack of food, increasing cognitive performance through education and improving emotional deficiency. Poets for Hunger© (PFH) uses this opportunity to help feed and edify the mind, body and spirit.

The budgets for many schools around the country have been significantly reduced. This leaves basic essentials and tools unfulfilled, that students and teachers desperately need. The school selected this year to receive Box Top labels is Indian Trail Elementary School. According to Kym Gordon Moore, Founder of Poets for Hunger©, “Every little bit helps. Individually, one Box Top for Education label may look rather ineffective and appear to be a waste of time to cut out. When that label is combined with a collection, however, the results can produce the additional revenue a school needs, whose budget has been reduced substantially.” Although the deadline for submitting labels to Indian Trail Elementary School for the Fall season is November 1, 2014, Poets for Hunger© will continue to collect labels for the Spring school season as well.

Collecting Box Tops for Education (BTFE) also gives everyone the opportunity to recycle the container or box they cut their label off of. Poets for Hunger© invites anyone who may not have a school to give their Box Tops for Education labels to, to consider donating their BTFE to the PFH team.

Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day, Central Labor Union, Workers Day Off, Federal Holiday in SeptemberToday is Labor Day, which originated in 1882 as the Central Labor Union that created a day off for working citizens. It became a federal holiday in 1894 by Congress. This observance is celebrated annually on the first Monday in September. In the first proposal of the Labor Day holiday, a street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations,” were followed by a festival for workers and their families. Emphasis was placed on the civil significance of this celebration and the holiday is regarded as a day of rest and celebration.

Make this a happy and safe Labor Day!

Today we celebrate marshmallows!

Marshmallows, National Marshmallow Day, S'mores, Toasted MarshmallowsDid you know that today is National Marshmallow Toasting Day? Having a fireside toasting party is a fabulous idea for bringing friends and families together. Invented by Earnest Patrick Finn during the late 18th century, creating a caramelized, golden brown outer skin over an open fire, the toasted marshmallow is enjoyed by itself or incorporated in a delectable sweet treat. The ever popular S’mores are made by placing toasted marshmallows on a slice of chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers.

For you savvy homemakers, click here to check out this homemade marshmallow recipe! During the cold months, they are great with a nice cup of hot chocolate. Enjoy!

PRLogAug. 18, 2014CHARLOTTE, N.C.North Carolina poet, Kym Gordon Moore announces the official launch of Poets for Hunger©, a not-for-profit mission to feed and edify the mind, body and spirit through poetry. This platform is designed to rally poets into bringing greater awareness to the various aspects of hunger, through the efforts and support of the poetry community.

Kym Gordon Moore, Founder for Poets for Hunger© (PFH) and author of “Wings of the Wind: A Cornucopia of Poetry,” developed this platform to integrate her community outreach work with her love of poetry. Such incorporation includes eradicating the lack of food, increasing cognitive performance and improving emotional deficiency. According to Moore, “There are many poets in our local, national and global communities, using their poetic efforts to enhance lives and give back. Through such efforts, these poets also promote the arts and humanities. I am grateful for and encouraged by the type of support and excitement I see generated throughout the community with poetry. Through Poets for Hunger© I want poets everywhere to use this platform to show the type of impact they are making in their communities, while enhancing the poetry genre.” To learn more about Poets for Hunger©, visit http://www.poetsforhunger.com/. Check out their video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38ehnFiufpc.

Beginning September 1, 2014, Poets for Hunger© will begin collecting non-perishable food, in conjunction with the resident poets of the Indian Trail Cultural Arts Center. These donations will benefit local families in need for Thanksgiving. Those attending the monthly poetry open mic events are asked to bring at least 1 canned good or other non-perishable food item for their September, October and November readings, which occurs on the second Saturday each month. The monthly open mic readings at the Indian Trail Cultural Arts Center in Indian Trail, North Carolina, are free to the public.

Poets for Hunger© continues to collect Box Tops for Education labels to benefit a local school. Labels for the 2014-2015 school year will be donated to Indian Trail Elementary School, in Indian Trail, North Carolina. If you do not have a school in your area to support with the Box Tops for Education program, feel free to donate them to Poets for Hunger© instead of throwing them away. For more information about this project and others, email POH at info@poetsforhunger.com.

Introducing Poets for Hunger

poets for hunger, poetry, kym gordon moore, the poetry community

Today is the official launch of my mission-driven movement, Poets for Hunger©. There are many in our community of poets and authors who do so much to bring greater awareness to poetry through many benevolent mediums. For years, I was working on different types of community outreach projects to feed the body, mind and spirit with a diverse audience. Now, I am making it official, because I found out that many of you out there have a story to tell. I want to use this platform with Poets for Hunger© to share that with the world. You can email me at info@poetsforhunger.com. Check out our website http://www.poetsforhunger.com/ and be sure to follow us on our social media channels. We will reciprocate. Meanwhile, please feel free to enjoy our premier video!

Candid Camera Returns During National Smile Month!

Candid Camera, Allen Funt, Peter Funt,

Image Credit: insidetv.ew.com

For those of you who remember the wacky world of Allen Funt’s television series Candid Camera, it left us laughing scene after scene. Funt was the host or co-hosted all versions of this show before his illness. His son Peter Funt co-hosted specials with his father and became the producer and host. The series began 66 years ago, on August 10, 1948. The last original broadcast was on May 5, 2004.

But for the diehard fans of Candid Camera who welcomed the laughter in the midst of daily disheartening news, guess what? It’s back! That’s right, the New Candid Camera is coming to TV Land. Peter Funt will co-host with Mayim Bialik who we recognize from the Big Bang Theory. New episodes will air at 8:00pm Monday-Thursday, during the first week.

The show will then air weekly on Tuesdays, starting Aug. 19. It is reported that Carnie Wilson, Reggie Jackson and Megan Hilty will help pull off the hidden-camera gags!

SMILE…You’re on Candid Camera!

Celebrating National Smile Month in August

National Smile Month, Smiling, SmileIt takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body… the heart.
~Author Unknown

Needless to say National Smile Month is pretty self explanatory. This facial expression formed by flexing the muscles near both ends of your mouth form an expression of happiness, pleasure and even involuntary anxiety. Sometimes smiling faces can also be deceptive.

Many say smiling is quite beneficial because it can emit confidence, reduce stress, lowers your blood pressure and even boosts your immune system. A smile is just a frown turned upside down. Do you remember any of these title songs using “Smile” that made you feel good?

Behind A Painted Smile – 1969 – Isley Brothers

Born With A Smile On My Face – 1974 – Stephanie De Sykes

Can’t Smile Without You – 1978 – Barry Manilow

Certain Smile, A – 1958 – Johnny Mathis

Crooked Smile – 2013 – J. Cole featuring TLC

I Love Your Smile – 1992 – Shanice

I Smile – 2011 – Kirk Franklin

Inner Smile – 2001 – Texas

Just One Smile – 1966 – Gene Pitney

Just To See You Smile – 1998 – Tim McGraw

Keep On Smilin’ – 1974 – Wet Willie

Make Me Smile – 1970 – Chicago

Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) – 1975 – Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel

No One Can Make My Sunshine Smile – 1962 – Everly Brothers

Sara Smile (won’t you smile awhile for me, Sara) – 1976 – Hall & Oates

Secret Smile – 1999 – Semisonic

Smile – 1954 – Nat King Cole

Smile – 1997 – Scarface featuring 2 Pac and Johnny P

Smile – 1999 – Vitamin C featuring Lady Saw

Smile – 2007 – Lily Allen

Smile – 2011 – Avril Lavigne

Smile A Little Smile For Me (Rosemarie; what’s the use in crying?) – 1969 – Flying Machine

Smiling Bill McCall – 1960 – Johnny Cash

Smiling Faces Sometimes (they don’t tell the truth; beware of the handshake) – 1971 – The Undisputed Truth

Sunshine Of Your Smile – 1980 – Mike Berry

Sweetest Smile – 1987 – Black

U Smile – 2010/2011 – Justin Bieber

When I See You Smile (I can face the world, oh I can do anything) – 1989 – Bad English

When My Little Girl Is Smiling – 1962 – Craig Douglas

When My Little Girl Is Smiling – 1962 – Jimmy Justice

Your Smiling Face – 1977 – James Taylor

One of my favorite “Smile” songs was the Charlie Chaplin song that Michael Jackson sang. It was based on an instrumental theme used in the 1936 soundtrack for Charlie Chaplin’s movie “Modern Times.” Life is still worthwhile, if you just smile. Listen and enjoy!
