THE STORY:

ABOUT HUNGERTHON

Hungerthon/Imagine There's No Hunger is an annual campaign organized by WhyHunger to make a difference in the lives of the 50 million Americans and nearly billion people worldwide for whom hunger is an everyday reality.

Founded in 1975 by Bill Ayres, Harry Chapin and Pete Fornatale, Hungerthon brings a month of exclusive online auctions, events, social media activation and broadcasts that culminate in a Radiothon – this year airing on Saturday December 8th and Wednesday December 12th on numerous satellite and tri-state area radio stations, including SiriusXM Satellite Radio; CBS Radio Group: Sports Radio 66 WFAN, WCBS Newsradio 880, 101.1 WCBS-FM and more. Hungerthon partners include Yoko Ono Lennon, Hard Rock International, Bruce Springsteen and you! Learn more at Hungerthon.org.

Will you help us make this year's Hungerthon the most successful one yet?

 

HOW TO HELP

Start a fundraiser on Crowdrise and join our team! Share your fundraiser with your friends, family and colleagues this November. Encourage them to Donate. Or Donate yourself and Share this link with everyone you know! Then, stay in touch by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter.

For every dollar raised, we are one step closer to a world were we don't have to imagine there's no hunger.

Plus, the more money our Hungerthon team raises by November 27th, the better chance we have of winning the Martha Stewart Thanks for Giving Challenge! First place prize is $25,000. Second place is $15,000. Third place is $10,000.
