While the rest of us are literally chowing down at the Thanksgiving dinner table with friends and family, stuffing ourselves completely silly, and then topping it off with a slice of pie (or two or three…pumpkin, pecan and cherry anyone???) don’t forget that there a people in this world who would think the meal you ate was not only decadent, but reserved for gods or royalty. Because food should NOT be a luxury, I want to call attention to Action For Hunger and their good work helping to fill hungry tummies across the globe. There isn’t a more perfect time to be giving, than the holiday season.
Did you know that malnutrition claims the lives of a MILLION children each year? A MILLION. That is a seriously scary number considering that malnutrition is totally predicable, preventable, treatable and affordable.
Action Against Hunger works in 45 countries in four main program areas: nutrition, wash, food security, and emergency response to provide food, clean water, sanitation, and crisis assistance.
Check out these amazing accomplishments:
- Responded to 51 crisis situations in 3 years
- Provided 5,550+ humanitarian experts
- Helped 2 million people regain economic self-sufficiency
- Treated 3.5 million people for malnutrition and illness
Just $45 can save a child's life!
Now, I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer or rain on your Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade….but seriously, we simply cannot continue to be gluttons while others are literally starving. Because I want to live in a world where there is food on the table for everyone, I am pledging to donate 10 percent of profits from Hello World Paper Co. to Action Against Hunger during the month of November. If you want to help too, please visit www.ActionAgainstHunger.org.
This season I am truly blessed to have you as a customer, to have a thriving business, and to have abundance and opportunity to give back.
