In lieu of my birthday in April, 2013 I will be asking for donations to the World Food Program to fight world hunger. Every day 1 in 4 kids go to bed hungry. That means one in seven people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life.
Hunger and malnutrition are in fact the number one risk to the health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Malnourished mothers often give birth to underweight babies, who are 20% more likely to die before the age of five.
WFP can provide a meal to four children through its global school feeding program for just $1 per day.
For just $72, you can provide nutrition for a pregnant or new mother, strengthening both woman and child.
$25 feeds a child in school for half the year
$50 feeds one child in school for the entire academic year
$70-100 per child provides supplementary food to a child under 2 years of age for 18 months
$1,000 feeds 100 school children for one year
Together, we can start to beat world hunger. Join me in spreading the love :)
