It might be hard to believe but there is such a thing as a state department that benefits every single Michigan resident on a daily basis for the price of pocket change.

If you haven't guessed it already I'm talking about the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA).

A new video on YouTube shows how MDA programs benefit average people in everyday lives in ways most people don't even imagine at the shockingly low price of just 2 cents a day.

As this short and entertaining video explains, don't let the department's agricultural name fool you. From eating and preparing safe and healthy meals to fueling up the car, caring for pets, buying flowers and tending to lawns, MDA touches our lives daily from sun up to sun down.

I encourage you to see it for yourself at Then...pass it along.
