Today we welcome guest blogger Jeff Gordon, a four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion with 85 victories to his name and even more accolades across the sport of racing. Today Jeff is focusing his energy toward a different goal: ending hunger among older Americans.

Too many Americans are living on a dangerous edge—not always knowing where their next meal is coming from. Of the 51 million Americans who face the threat of hunger, nearly nine million are over the age of 50. I don’t think anyone should have to make the devastating choice between food and other basic needs.

So I’ve teamed up with AARP and AARP Foundation and YouTube in Drive to End Hunger to raise awareness and support for older Americans struggling with hunger, To educate you about this serious issue, Drive to End Hunger and I have posted videos you can see on our AARP YouTube channel. We’re using the channel as a place where you can connect with other members and supporters, make a playlist of other YouTube videos that talk about this issue and see how we’re engaging fans at-track and in their communities.


So far we’ve gotten great feedback and participation in the campaign and to videos like Check Out Line, which helped us donate more than 3.7 million meals to local hunger relief organizations. By working together, we can solve the problem of senior hunger and improve the lives of the people who took care of us for so many years. Join the conversation at youtube.com/aarp and support Drive to End Hunger today!

Thanks again for your support!
