Fwd: Bloggers Unite for Hunger & Hope on April 29, 2009

Sphere: Related Content

I am making a quick and easy posting to this blog by simply inserting what BloggersUnited sent me. Other things have kept me busy and this was one of the more important things to come across my desktop. The fight against hunger has been one of the primary focuses of this blog. There is small bit of philosophical apprehension with Heifer International, but the truth is that I am not a vegetarian myself and their program has limited impacted compared to McDonald's.

Bloggers Unite for Hunger and Hope

Dear Your Name Here,

We have great news! BlogCatalog is launching its first coordinated campaign Bloggers Unite For Hunger And Hope on April 29.

BlogCatalog and Heifer International are partnering to call for the end of world hunger and start of hope on April 29. All we ask is that you join thousands of other bloggers and write a post about world hunger on April 29.

You Can Make a Difference.

  • Right now, more than 500 million people are living in "absolute poverty" and more than 15 million children die of hunger every year.
  • World Health Organization estimates that one-third of the population is underfed and another third is starving.
  • Even in the United States, 46 percent of African-American children and 49 percent of Latino children are considered chronically hungry.

Organizations like Heifer International are the solution. Every day in April, Heifer International is lifting people out of poverty by providing communities with livestock and agricultural training to improve lives and inspire hope.

What can you do for Bloggers Unite For Hunger And Hope?

"Heifer International is thrilled to be a part of Bloggers Unite for Hunger and Hope," said Tom Peterson, senior director of Heifer International. "Bloggers Unite for Hunger and Hope is a great way to harness the power of the Internet, and it coincides with our Pass on the Gift campaign."
