BENEFITING: 4others

EVENT: Crowdrise Holiday Fundraiser Thing

EVENT DATE: Nov 25, 2010

THE STORY:

Thanksgiving reminds us of how much we have to be grateful for. Every day, hunger kills nearly 8,000 kids under age 5. That's 1 every 10 seconds. Every night, more than a billion people go to bed hungry. That's 1 in 6 people!

This Thanksgiving, you'll probably enjoy a delicious meal, eating to your heart's content. But what if you could share your food with a starving child?

For about the same price as a Thanksgiving turkey, you can give a life-saving meal to 210 children in developing nations. Below is a list of some traditional Thanksgiving foods. Choose an item (or symbolically put together a whole meal) and donate the equivalent to this project. 100% of all donations received by 4others will be used to provide life-saving meals to severely malnourished children around the world. (Read below for more details.)

A Family Thanksgiving:

1 Large Turkey = $40 = Feed 210 children
1 Medium Turkey = $30 = Feed 157 children
1 Small Turkey = $20 = Feed 105 children

Vegetables = $2

Stuffing = $5

Potatoes & Gravy / Sweet Potato Casserole = $5

Cranberry Sauce = $1.50 = Feed 7 children

Biscuits = $3

Pumpkin Pie = $10 = Feed 52 children

Give Thanks. Give Food. Give Life.


HOW IT WORKS:
On April 15 & 16, 2011, we'll be partnering with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) to conduct a huge MobilePack event. In just two days, we'll be hand-packing at least 100,000 nutritious meals for starving children in developing nations.

The formula for these meals was developed by food scientists from Cargill and General Mills specifically for children struggling with extreme malnutrition. This food product includes rice, soy, vegetables, a vegetarian-based chicken flavoring, and a vitamin and mineral mix. Each meal costs only 19 CENTS to produce!

100% of all donations received by 4others will be used to provide life-saving meals in partnership with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC).
