World Hunger Relief. Use your soda buying to save lives!
Food riots erupted across the globe this year in countries such as Egypt and India. Food pantries in the United States also warned that they were running out of food because of unprecedented demand. The news from the World Food Programme is even grimmer: A child dies of hunger every six seconds, and hunger now kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
The number of children who are starving, even right here in the U.S. of A. is staggering. Regardless Of The Contention Some Will Make That There are Those Who Are Poor And Starving Because Of Bad Choices, No One Can Claim That THE CHILDREN Deserve To Die Of Starvation.
I think it is no coincidence that we mark World Hunger Relief Week just prior to Thanksgiving, a time we traditionally celebrate with great feasts. Imagine that you can save a life and with very little effort at all. You can do just that. Give food or money to those who will feed the hungry. It takes so little to do sooooo much. All you need to do is skip a soda or two a week from a vending machine and you can keep a child alive! Instead, simply bring to work your own soda bought in a 12 pack from the grocery store, for about a dollar less per bottle or can, donate the difference, and you can save a life! Imagine that! That's all it takes!
Do you respect or regard sports figures as "heros"? Real heros save real lives. YOU can be a REAL HERO. That's all it takes, a tiny amount of effort and time. It doesn't even mean missing out on your soda in the simple example I provided. Just take a moment and a tiny bit of effort to bring your own to work or where ever you go and put the difference towards feeding a starving child. Ever been hungry? Ever TRULY been hungry? It's not fun. For a child to go through it daily is not even sane. It's torture. When they die of it that is a crime against humanity BY those of us who have more and are able to do more, with less, live the same as we do (still have our sodas) and yet save lives!
