These are not just mere facts or numbers but a lot of pain and suffering. For most of us, hunger is something that lasts only for minutes, hours or till our next meal is prepared or served. This is not the case for almost a billion people, those who are not even certain of when are they going to eat their next FULL meal. We are fortunate enough to be living in one of the developed countries of the world and do not have to worry about hunger. We are also fortunate to be in a situation/position to help and serve people apart from our family. Lets make use of this situation and support organisations like World Vision to feed and support these people and help save lives as well.

This year I’m biting back at the Global Food Crisis and doing the 40 Hour Famine. I’m giving up food for 40 hours to raise money to help hungry kids on the 21 – 23 August 2009 !!

I request you to join me in feeding these hungry kids or providing them with the basic necessities of life.

Please help out by donating on http://www.40hourfamine.com.au. You can enter by famine number 671049591. It does not take long. Remember, it is not about how much money you donate, but about how much you care about human life apart from the ones you are related to.

Thank you for supporting and helping hungry kids!!

P.S. Donations are tax deductible depending on your personal tax position. The minimum amount is $2. You will receive a tax receipt via email as soon as you’ve made the donation.

    I had seen this photo through one of my fwded mails.
    But i opened up some images on google to show my 7 year old son that food is a blessing…and he needs to respect it. He was fussing about some cold rotis kept at the table, but after seeing the photo, he realised that it was important to eat food and value the presence of it.
    I am happy children as young as my son are able to understand the situation and the crisis.
    Praying for a world of happy stomachs…if i may say!
