I've been working with Feed Our Children NOW! as a food drive coordinator since January of 2012. I help kids in different areas set up Food Drives in their home towns. I also spent four days out with them this summer at the Vans Warped Tour. There is no one who works harder than Feed Our Children NOW! to collect the donations and provide food to shelters all over the United States. I have never been a part of such a loving and supportive group of people, who really care about whats going on and strive to make the world a better place.

I was fortunate to work with Lana & Feed Our Children Now! on this summer's Warped Tour 2011 and i must say not only is it a GREAT organization but its also run by someone who really cares about the lives being touched and helped! 2012 is right around the corner and i know that Feed Our Children Now! will be all over it and expanding immensely. Feed Our Children Now! has definitely been one of the highlights in 2011. - Robert Herrera-

I have been working with Creative Money Works INC since 2008, which was my junior year of college. My experience has been invaluable. I've learned organization, coordination, execution of project deadlines in a timely manner, and accountability. I believe my success in my current job, and the volunteer work that I do is a direct result of the mentor-ship I received from the folks at Creative Money Works INC. They are innovative and forward thinking. True leaders in helping the community!

I have been working with Feed Our Children NOW since November of 2010 and I could't be happier. They're a great chairty focused on helping bring food to children in the USA and Canada. Every summer they travel the country and collect canned goods as part of The Vans Warped Tour. The support from people attending the concerts has been amazing. I'm glad to say that i'll be a part of this fast growing non-profit for years to come.

I had the privilege of volunteering with Creative Money Works INC. through Feed Our Children Now. I am so honored to be a part of both organizations. Volunteering to give children in so many different parts of the country, the opportunity to have a better life is something that is so special to me. All I wish is that more people become aware of this organization so that we can help even more people around the country!

I've had the distinct pleasure to volunteer time with Creative Money Works, Inc.
My involvement began after an introduction to Lana Posner by my daughter Melissa. Lana offered to speak with me after learning of a personal transition I was going through. I mention this because it represents the selflessness and generous spirit that is at the core of Creative Money Works!
In our conversations I learned more about CMW and Feed Our Children NOW! The ability to contribute to easing hunger issues for children and their families, in addition to a program that teaches young underprivileged youth civic involvement and fiscal responsibility is stating the obvious. Lana’s passion and commitment to these programs is contagious - I could not resist the opportunity to become involved! Melissa has expressed her enthusiasm over the years through her volunteer efforts, both in the merits of the programs and her high regard for Lana’s mentorship. This Organization has a knack for attracting volunteers with a focus on diversity. One in particular that has impressed me, is the positive reaction of the many youth that come out to volunteer (in increasing numbers each year) during the Vans Warped Tour in support of Feed Our Children NOW!

Feed Our Children Now, part of Creative Money Works, is a highly effective organization focused on feeding hungry children in the US. What is wonderful about the organization is that it's expenditures are designed to maximize the collection and distribution of non-perishable food with very low costs in logistics. The volunteers, mostly very young adults, show an extraordinary level of compassion and talent all of which go a long way in helping FOCN achieve its goal - feeding children in need across the United States.

Creative Money Works is a 501c3 focused on feeding hungry children in the USA. Through CMG’s Feed Our Children NOW! Program they collect food in each city Van's Warped Tour stops in for a day long concert. I was overwhelmed at the amount of young people who brought food and carried heavy bags a long distance in support of this cause. It is wonderful how many kids volunteer to work at each concert because they care about making a difference and helping kids who are hungry. More and more kids go to bed hungry in this country then ever before. We spent 5 hours collecting food for the charity that comes and pick’s up the food. It is impressive how dedicated these young volunteers are to the cause. It is a very rewarding experience to have the opportunity to be part of such an important cause and know you were part of feeding many families who otherwise would not have food.
