Approximately 18,000 children die a day from hunger and hunger related causes. That's one every five seconds! I think it's easy to let this fact pass us by unless we put a face or a name with that number, and then that number becomes somebody's son or daughter, or sister or brother.
So let's do something awesome. I'm serious! Let's pull together and make something happen. Let's feed 100,000 children. In order to do so, we need to raise $22,000 dollars, and we can't do it alone. We want to invite you to help make this event happen. One meal only costs $0.22, so any donation, no matter how big or how small, can make a difference.
But there's a little more to the story.
We will be packing the meals ourselves! We have partnered with the organization Feed My Starving Children. FMSC is a non-profit organization committed to feeding God's children. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and then FMSC ships the meals to over 70 countries around the world. They bring all the raw materials (chicken, veggies, soy, and rice, a slogan you will come to know) and all the necessities to pack the meals. We supply a location, and over 500 loving volunteers. Watch the video below to learn more about what we are doing.
So let's do this! There are so many things you can do to help, from sharing our page on Facebook to donating to the cause to volunteering to pack meals yourself. You can learn more about donating from the donation page on our website. You can also use the tabs to learn about upcoming fundraisers and how to volunteer to pack. I hope you join us in our goal of feeding 100,000 children. Together, we can make a local and global impact.
