Marc Makes Thanksgiving Challenge

On his Facebook wall, Marc Stewart issued this challenge to his 547 friends: "I am challenging all my Facebook friends to go out and spend $20 at Wal-Mart or your favorite grocery story to buy a Thanksgiving dinner for a family less fortunate than you. The Coeur d'Alene-based food bank, called the Community Action Partnership Food Bank is short 3,000 turkeys. This is unacceptable. I took my 5-year-old son shopping and to the food bank to show him the importance of giving. He said, 'Daddy, how come people don't have the many foods.'"

Question: Up to the challenge?
