Welcome to My Personal Fundraising Page!
Please Help Save the Children!
You can help by raising awareness of the disastrous conditions of drought and starvation in East Africa.
This page is an easy place to access information on this disaster, and/or a convenient place to make a donation.
For the first time in history, the number of hungry people in the world has passed the 1 billion mark. One in six people go to bed desperately hungry every night. And last year, an estimated 5 million young children died from complications from acute malnutrition.
These figures point to an urgent crisis. But since hunger is not a result of global food shortages, there is hope. The knowledge and tools to end hunger are readily available. And everyone's help can make a difference!
As I've learned about the realities of global hunger, I've been inspired to take my own action -- so I joined Action Against Hunger as a citizen advocate to help end hunger. With your contributions towards my fundraising goal, I can help Action Against Hunger bring immediate relief and long-term solutions to starving children and families around the world.
Please bookmark this page if you're interested in keeping track of my progress.
