I need your help to make my birthday wish come true! I want to feed as many innocent, hungry little children in the USA as I can but I can't do this alone! I am asking for your help so the children of this country get the food they need to live a healthy and productive life.

In the USA alone, 16.2 million kids in America struggle with hunger. Children are the most visible victims of under-nutrition. The USDA defines "food insecurity" as the lack of access, at times, to enough food for all household members. We are facing an unprecedented nutritional crisis resulting from triple threat: Obesity, food insecurity, malnutrition.
Food insecurity effects children in the following areas. HEALTH- Hungry children are sick more often, recover more slowly, and are more likely to be hospitalized. They are more likely to experience headaches, stomachaches, colds, ear infections, and fatigue. Nearly 1 in 3 school age children and adolescents is overweight or obese. This is a result of hunger, not overeating. This is because their bodies are not getting the proper essential nutrients. Without the proper essential nutrients their bodies never reach a level of satiation. This can cause them to over eat.
ACADEMICS- Food insecure children that 0-3 years of age cannot learn as much, as fast, or as well. Lack of essential nutrients impairs a child's ability to concentrate and preform well in school.
EMOTIONAL AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING- Kiddos who are food insecure and that do not get enough nutritious food to eat have significantly higher levels of behavioral, emotional, and academic problems. They are more likely to be aggressive and anxious. Teens who don't get the proper essential nutrients are more likely to be suspended from school and have difficulty getting along with other kids.
In today's world, we have enough food to feed the world! There shouldn't be any excuses why we can't feed hungry little children in this country! I have a dream to feed all the starving kiddos in this world and I am starting in this country.
I appeal to each and every human being in this country that has the means to do so, help me make my birthday wish come true.
"Together we can move mountains."
All my love to you and the children of this world. God Bless you all!
P.S. I want to thank Yevo International and the 43 for Kids organization for changing the way the world eats by solving the GLOBAL NUTRIENT DEFICIT CRISIS.
