'Please join me in donating to this wonderful cause and make a difference in the lives of so many people,' Sharon Osbourne pleads.
Sharon Osbourne is helping feed the hungry - the rock matriarch is spearheading a charity's new campaign to aid U.S. food banks. The wife of former Black Sabbath star Ozzy Osbourne is a longterm supporter of the Rock and Wrap It Up! charity and she is backing their new initiative, Win4Hunger, to raise cash to help provide food for those unable to afford it.
Bosses at the organization are asking for a $50 sum - and in return, kind-hearted donors will be entered into a draw to win $1 million towards their dream home. In a video appeal, Osbourne says, "I'm here to ask for your much needed help. I've been a supporter of the Rock and Wrap It Up! charity for many years. With its mission to feed the hungry, they work directly with local food banks every day to bring food to people who are in desperate need. Millions of people have been fed as a result of this charity's tireless efforts."
"The need to fight hunger in our local communities has never been greater but unfortunately today there are a lot less resources available to combat this growing problem. The charity really needs your financial help."
"Now please join me in donating to this wonderful cause and make a difference in the lives of so many people. With your contribution you can have a chance to win up to $1 million towards the purchase of your dream home."
