FEED the Hungry; NO KID HUNGRY

Hunger kills more people everyday around the world than AIDS, Malaria, Tuberculosis combined. It is a sin that anyone in today's technological world goes hungry. Here are some organizations that are trying to do their part:


Organization 1: FEED

I have written about this charity before. It is an international attempt to stem hunger around the globe.  Here are some facts:

You can help with donations or by going to their store and buying any item from a $15 coin purse or bracelets.....

to an elaborate bag made by the Masi in Kenya.....(they have good from Guatemala and India as well)

I chose this simple little tote.

Yes, you had to know there would be a handbag in there somewhere right? But with the purchase of this bag I can feed 2 children for a year.  Just think if we all bought something that we might use anyway and in the meantime it had a direct effect on someone who would not otherwise get the help they need.

Follow FEED on twitter HERE and Facebook HERE.

 Organization 2: NO KID HUNGRY

HUNGER FACT IN THE USA

The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. The campaign also engages the public to make ending childhood hunger a national priority.

HERE is  list of their programs.

They work to ensure that those children in need in the USA receive school lunches. They also have a summer food program.

Below are some of their more succesful programs:

Dine Out for No Kid Hungry
Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry
NYC Food and Wine Festival

Learn how you can participate in these events and help make hunger a thing of the past. Heck we all have to eat and drink, it might be good that as we feed ourselves we can feed others too.
