Hello everyone! This August I am taking part in the 40 Hour Famine! I am going without technology and furniture for 40 hours to help fight world hunger and put it to an end! I am aiming to get $200 and I hope to change the lives of many hungry families. This year the money will go to Ethiopia to help families increase their food supply by:
• New and improved irrigation schemes to water crops and fruit trees
• Improved farming techniques
• Support to raise dairy cows, chickens and other livestock
• Beehives to produce honey to eat and sell
• Conservation activities to improve soil and to protect and grow trees.
If you could even donate $1 that could still make a difference! Just $40 can feed a family of 5 for a whole month! No one can help where they're born, and unfourtunately in these countries they are a lot less fourtunate than us here reading this. Living in Ethiopia makes you 20 times more likely to die before you turn just 5! You have a 50% chance of a stunted growth because of hunger. They have no access to clean water for drinks or bathing and no access to toilets. They live on less that $1.25 a day. And they are hungry.
If you cannot donate any money I understand completely, but I hope that more people know about the sad truth about world hunger and how it needs to be stopped! I hope I can make a small difference to a family or twos daily lives!
If you would like to donate some money to help these families have food, I would just be so grateful! It can even just be $1, anything helps and it all ads up! If you want to know where to send the money, please email me at email@example.com and I will be happy to show you!
Thank-you so so much everyone for reading this! I hope that I can make a difference! xoxo, Emily
