How You Can Help Feed The Hungry....FREE!

The Hunger Site


Awhile back in a conversation with a friend of mine, she mentioned a site where you could go, and by clicking a graphic at the top of the page, corporate sponsors would donate money to help feed the hungry.

It was one of those things you intend to make use of, and somehow you never get around to it, or you quite simply forget. I, unforgivably, forgot.

The conversation was awakened when I accidentally ran into this friend again, and this time, I remembered to write the information down.

If you will look to the right at the sidebar you will see a lovely new graphic that says "Help Feed the World's Hungry With One Click". Clicking that graphic box, will take you to "The Hunger Site", where at the top of their page you will see a bright yellow (or orange depending on your browser and monitor) that says "Click Here to Give - it's FREE". Click that button, and corporate sponsors will donate to buy food.

According to the information provided at "The Hunger Site" :

"On average, over 220,000 individuals from around the world visit the site each day to click the yellow "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button. To date, more than 300 million visitors have given more than 657 million cups of staple food.

The staple food funded by clicks at The Hunger Site is paid for by site sponsors and distributed to those in need by Mercy Corps , Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest) , and Millennium Promise . 100% of sponsor advertising fees goes to our charitable partners. Funds are split between these organizations and go to the aid of hungry people in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America."

To me, 220,000 individuals clicking once a day is not enough. So, I am asking people who read all of our blogs, to please click on our "Hunger Site" buttons once a day. Also, if you are the owner of a blog, a home page, a website, or an e-commerce site, I challenge you to include a button or text link for the "Hunger Site" on your pages. Especially all of you Catholic bloggers! Get yours (a text link, button or banner) by cliking on this link :




You're chicken if you don't!

I know that the "Faith of the Fathers" blogs have visitors every day from all over the world. I am asking all of you, to please help by simply clicking the box in the sidebars of our blogs, and then click to feed hungry men, women, and children around the globe. The people who subscribe to our feeds with a feed reader will also have a chance to participate, as I have set a text link to appear in the footer of every post for all of our 23 blogs.

Whether you are Catholic, Protestant, agnostic, American, Canadian, Filipino, Australian, German, or whatever...no one should be against feeding the hungry. Especially when all it costs you is the time it takes for a click or two.

Your brother in Christ,
Steve
