Hello Collegues, Friends & Family...
If you have ever known anyone who cannot provide enough for themselves or for their children and have gone without meals, then you know what a difference a small gesture can make, such as providing them with a meal. Food is the nourishment that fuels our brains and bodies. Without proper amounts of food, not only are we not getting the necessary nutrients to sustain our daily bodily processes, we are not getting the nutrients that are key to creating a beautiful life within us. Our mood, our minds, our energy levels are all dependent on what we put into or DON'T put into our bodies...
I am fundraising for a very important cause. Most of us have not experienced such pain as the pain of not being able to be sufficiently fed. I am fundraising for people in need of a meal. Any small contribution that you would be willing to make will go towards helping people achieve a very basic human need- Quelling Hunger.
It is with love and respect that I approach all of you, and nomatter if you make a donation or not, please know that I so greatly appreciate your time in reading this information. <3
"Eating alone is a disappointment. But not eating matter more, is hollow and green, has thorns like a chain of fish hooks, trailing from the heart, clawing at your insides. Hunger feels like pincers, like the bite of crabs; it burns, burns, and has no fur. Let us sit down soon to eat with all those who haven't eaten; let us spread great tablecloths, put salt in lakes of the world, set up planetary bakeries, tables with strawberries in snow, and a plate like the moon itself from which we can all eat. For now I ask no more than the justice of eating." ::Pablo Neruda, Chilean Poet::
Peace & Love to You and Yours Always...

Why should you fundraise here?
Right now, 50 million Americans are going hungry—they don't know when they will get their next meal. The reality is there IS enough food in the world today for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life.
Hunger is the world’s most solvable problem.
It's something we can do something about. Together, we can make a huge impact in a very simple way. All you have to do is RUN!
After witnessing the effects of hunger firsthand when traveling as a WFP Student Spokesperson, Lauren Bush Lauren founded FEED Projects in 2007 with the mission of creating good products that help FEED the world. The social business has created over 60 products, and every product sold has a measurable donation attached to it. To date, FEED has been able to donate over $6 million and provide nearly 60 million school meals globally. FEED has also supported nutrition programs around the world, providing vitamin supplements to over 3.5 million children. FEED partners with organizations such as the United Nations World Food Programme, UNICEF, Feeding America and DonorsChoose.org to fight hunger and eliminate malnutrition by providing meals, nutritional supplements and education.
