THE STORY:

Skip It 4others is a simple but effective way to make a difference. We're asking people to SKIP something -- a latte, a movie, a dinner out, a new outfit, etc. -- and to instead donate the money to feed starving children around the world.

On April 15 & 16, 2011, we'll be partnering with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) to conduct a huge MobilePack event here in San Jose. In just two days, we'll be hand-packing tens of thousands of nutritious meals for starving children in developing nations.

The formula for these meals was developed by food scientists from Cargill and General Mills specifically for children struggling with extreme malnutrition. This food product includes rice, soy, vegetables, a vegetarian-based chicken flavoring, and a vitamin and mineral mix. Each meal costs only 19 CENTS to produce!

4others has committed to packing a minimum of 100,000 meals during this two-day event. That means we'll need to raise at least $19,000 to pay for the meals, and recruit enough volunteers to fill 500 two-hour packing shifts!

Skipping it is easy! Just think about how much money we spend on things we don't really need. While you may not even miss it, a child could live because of it. The cost of a typical dinner entree ($19) can provide 100 nutritious meals for children in need.

So, you do the SUBTRACTION (by skipping), and we'll take care of the MULTIPLICATION (by turning donations into meals for starving kids)!

Donate to Skip It 4others today. Skip something. Feed a child.

100% of all donations received by 4others will be used to provide life-saving meals in partnership with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC).
