To give! As we’re all focusing on what to get our loved ones for Christmas, families all over the world are focusing on how they will eat tomorrow or how they will get clean water for their family. You know, as a mom, my children are my first priority. I am also struck by the need to help another mother provide for her families basic needs. Worldvison.com is a wonderful website that allows YOU as a family or individual provide much needed help for a family or child in need. You can provide an alpaca or a share of an alapaca for an Peruvian or Ecuadorian family or you could help to build a well for many impoverished communities. What a great gift to give! When you purchase a gift through The Hunger Site store, every item you purchase sends at least 25 cups of food to the hungry! This site offers beautiful jewelry, clothing, pottery, and many other gifts.

Do you know someone how has everything? Like your father in law? or that aunt who seems to have too much of everything? Why not provide $325 worth of necessities to an impoverished child in New York City in their name? I hope that this year we are able to touch someone’s life in a positive manner rather than only padding the pockets of credit card companies.

While you’re at it take a few minutes and scan these websites for other great gifts that go along way to helping others.

I found this an interesting way to donate food for the hungry:

http://freerice.com/index.php

This website offers a game way to donating. They give you a word (not easy ones) and then four possible definitions, you choose the correct one and they will donate 10 grains of rice. So for every word you define correctly you are donating 10 grains to a hungry person through an international aid agency.

So for those of you out there who LOVE word games, give www.freerice.com a chance.

Note: For those of you (like me) who aren’t word geniuses, try Googling the word by typing define:word <——-you substitute word here.

Example: truculent means:

 

  1. trashy
  2. regular
  3. presumptuous
  4. savage

The Hunger Site

October 14-20th is World Hunger week! Please do your part to help end world hunger!

My four year old daughter and I pray about hunger daily, she feels this is more important than anything else for her to pray about. If a four year old can find hunger important enough to talk to God about shouldn’t we? Hunger claims the lives of 25,000 people each day and 18,000 hungry children die each day. How many more have to forfeit their lives before we as a community come together to say enough is enough?! As (a mostly overweight) nation, we, each, consume somewhere around 1500 pounds of food a year! While most of us wasted nearly $100 billion of edible food last year, 854 million people do not have enough to eat–thats more than the populations of USA, Canada and the European Union. One in seven people on the planet suffer from hunger and more than 60 percent of chronically hungry people are women, which should strike most of us women as deeply disturbing…60% of 854 million people, thats 512 million women.

As a mother, I find this statistic the most heartbreaking: every five seconds a child dies because she or he is hungry. In the time it has take you to read just this far, nine children have died due to hunger. 9.7 million children under five died in developing countries in 2006. Malnutrition and hunger-related diseases caused 60 percent of the deaths.

When do we say ENOUGH! If we all helped out just a little, we could easily end world hunger. It takes standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves and it might even mean a little sacrifice from us, but isn’t it worth it. Help stop the hunger and death!
