BENEFITING: Friends of the World Food Program
As many of you should be aware of, there is a famine occurring in the Horn of Africa. More than 11 million people are starving, in the smothering heat, walking days upon weeks to refugee camps because of the war that has been occurring for the last 2 decades. This is the worst famine in 20 years and the worst drought in 60 years. Children, adults, elders, wandering to refuegee camps where there isn't even enough food or shelter to give to them.
For my 16th birthday on August 28th, I am asking everyone to donate to my fundraiser in support of those suffering through this famine. I'm hoping to raise $160 by my birthday. If just 10 people donated $16, I would reach my goal. All of the proceeds go straight to the World Food Program.
This is my first project I've created through Crowdrise, so I thought I would start out with a relatively small goal of $160. Any amount helps, right? Please donate what you can and even join the team! Thanks so much!
