I’m donating all the proceeds from my Cameo page (https://t.co/BP8QAdpzzw) to @nokidhungry. Added a 50% code for those who want to donate on a smaller budget. I'll do my best to make you laugh & you'll help make sure kids still get fed while schools are out. #cameo #NoKidHungry pic.twitter.com/ygMwrIXTip— Donna Lynne Champlin (@DLChamplin) March 18, 2020
