When she turned 29 last year, Lauren Puryear set a unique goal - she wanted to feed 30,000 people before her 30th birthday. And she planned to use extreme couponing to do it. Well, her big 3-0 isn’t until September, but this humanitarian has already reached her goal - and it’s only March.
“After I couponed for 50 jars of Ragu sauce and 100 boxes of Barilla pasta all for FREE,” Puryear says, “I knew I was going to make a difference in the world.” And boy has she.
She started the organization For Love of Others to provide food and essentials to homeless people, and she’s been up and down the east coast bringing food to shelters, human service programs, and people living on the streets. They’ve also given uncooked meals to families in need and sent weekend meal bags home with school kids. And she’s not slowing down on her desire to make a difference in the world. We feel like this isn’t the last we’ll hear about Lauren Puryear’s good deeds.
