When I was young and wanted to waste food, I was told – ‘think of the children who do not have food to eat.’ I never took this seriously until I was older and realised that World Hunger is a global problem.
Now, when I my children say ‘ I don’t want anymore’ or being fussy, I find myself saying the same thing my parents told me all those years ago.
For Christmas 2013 WORLDFOODS wishes to give something back to those in crisis.
Stop Hunger Now is a charity that aims to end world hunger in our lifetime, a cause which is close to WORLDFOODS Global Business Director May Foong’s heart. WORLDFOODS wishes to help feed the poor, who can’t feed themselves.
WORLDFOODS will be implementing a Christmas Charity campaign in which they look to match the first 5,000 “Likes” they receive on their Facebook page with a donation of $1 to Stop Hunger Now.
WORLDFOODS will use the power of social sharing to raise awareness around this cause.
About Stop Hunger Now
The Mission of Stop Hunger Now is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilizing the resources to make this happen.
They have been fulfilling this commitment since they were founded in 1998.
In 2005 they launched their meal packing programme perfecting an assembly process of small meal packets that contain essential vitamins and minerals and have a 2 year shelf life. These cost only 25 cents. This means that a $1 dollar donation from WORLDFOODS will feed four hungry mouths.
Stop Hunger Now works with international partners to have these meals shipped and distributed.
70% of their meals are provided to transformational development programs such as school feeding, vocational training, early childhood development and orphanages.
Today as a Grow the Cause Ambassador I am asking you to help in the campaign, and the WorldFoods Facebook page here. If you are among the first 5000, a donation of $1 will be made to Stop Hunger Now.
What could be a better gift this Christmas than the gift of nutrition?
