I rarely use this blog as a platform for social change… but today is one of those days when I feel the need to encourage our generation (Millennials, I’m talking to you!) to give back. Let’s NOT be known as the self-absorbed, entitled, and selfish generation… let’s be known as the generation that didn’t just insist on change, but actually facilitated that change.
I’m ready to walk the walk. I urge you to join me.
Let’s be a part of the solution.
Childhood hunger is a problem too large to ignore:
3.1 million children die yearly as a result of starvation
45% of deaths in those under the age of 5 are due to hunger
66 million children attend school hungry daily
Nourish the Children has provided over 500 million nutritious, balanced, and vitamin-enriched meals (via VitaMeal) to malnourished children.
If you’re wondering why I chose Nourish the Children, here’s some more information on the program: Nourish the Children program.
$27 a month (that’s only $.90 a day… less than a cup of coffee) feeds a hungry child 30 well-balanced nutrient-rich meals.
‘Tis the season to give to others and look outside yourself.
Join me in donating. Go to the following link to give back: Nourish the Children VitaMeal Donation.
For every 3 bags donated through the above link, the organization will contribute another bag… and so will I. I am committed to matching as many donations as I can.
