Shire Sharing Foundress Amanda Bouldin and Chris Lopez help facilitate today’s deliveries.

Now in its fourth year, the charity created by Free State Project early mover Amanda Bouldin, Shire Sharing, has this year alone provided Thanksgiving dinner for over 330 families across New Hampshire!

Of those 330+ meals, the newly-formed Shire Sharing Keene presided over the delivery of nearly two dozen bags of food and turkeys across the Monadnock region. Outside of the Monadnock region, hundreds of families received the meals, in an amazing fourth-year effort. Though the main Shire Sharing organization made its fundraising goal of feeding 500 families, sadly one of the agencies from which family addresses were supplied apparently dropped the ball, leaving extra funds and supplies.  Amanda says Shire Sharing will be distributing those extra supplies to Liberty House homeless shelter in Manchester.

Yesterday, Free Keene blogger Rob Mathias documented the massive bag-assembly process that happened in Manchester.

Free Keene’s Darryl W. Perry released this video today which complied some scenes from the Keene-area bag assembly and the subsequent deliveries to happy recipients:

Shire Sharing Day 1

 

Today close to 50 people, mostly Free Staters, came together for the voluntaryist charity Shire Sharing. Shire Sharing was created by now NH State Representative Amanda Bouldin in dedication to her father. The goal of the charity this year is to feed up to 500 families in need this Thanksgiving in the Shire. Today was the assembly phase where activists put together bags of food for families. Tomorrow is the deliver day where all the bags created will be delivered to different families through out the Manchester area. I will be there to help deliver and to document deliveries. I have also been posting photos of the charity in action which can be found on my instagram account.

Help Shire Sharing Feed 500 Families on Thanksgiving

Shire Sharing Fundraiser 2014

Shire Sharing Fundraiser 2014

Shire Sharing was founded in 2011 by Free State Project early mover Amanda Bouldin. She and other activists come together to feed hundreds of families on Thanksgiving each year. First they raise thousands of dollars, then put together bags full of food that are customized to the dietary needs or the receiving family, and finally deliver them in time for Thanksgiving!

Every year, as the graphic to the right shows, Shire Sharing has delivered more meals than the previous year! Fundraising for 2014 has begun – click here to help them meet their goal of raising $8,500.

They can also use help assembling and delivering the meals – you can pitch in by joining the Shire Sharing facebook group.
