Jen Chapin

THE STORY:

WhyHunger has been part of my life since it was founded around my kitchen table when I was just out of diapers, and it was known as World Hunger Year. Today, WhyHunger's work serves as my daily inspiration and volunteer workload! I have been on WhyHunger's Board of Directors for going on 20 years, and have also served as Board Chair and Secretary, as well as being a spokesperson and doing any number of other projects and benefits. It is the programs and the staff that inspire me the most, and give me hope for a future of good food for all.

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 Wednesday, November 14, Saturday, November 17 and Tuesday, November 20 on numerous satellite and tri-sate area radio stations, including SiriusXM Satellite Radio; CBS Radio Group: Sports Radio 66 WFAN, WCBS Newsradio 880, 101.1 WCBS-FM, 92.3 NOW; 102.7 Fresh FM, Clear Channel Radio Group: Q104.3 FM, 92.5 WPLJ, WABC Talk Radio; Merlin 101.9, Z10, 103.5 KTU, Power 105.1, 106.7 Lite FM; Univision: 1280 AM WADO; with support from Citadel’s WABC Talk Radio and 95.5 WPLJ; 90.7 WFUV and internet only stations: Soundpress.net and Rockland World Radio.com. 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?

My goal is to raise $1000 for Hungerthon this year, and I would love if you could make a donation -- or even start your own fundraiser..

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.
