Let's stop hunger now...together

In the last year, I have been brought closer to those that know the pain of hunger personally. Of course, I have never been near starving or even had to consider where my next meal will come from.

But this past weekend, I was fortunate enough to go to the #U2360MIN concert at TCF Stadium. In his classic fashion Bono brought hunger front and center. In the U.S. we have spent nearly nine times more money on feeding our pets than we have on stopping world hunger. And 20 times more was spent on weight loss than helping those who don't have a meal. How is this possible?

According to the UN, the starvation problem in Kenya is the worst is has been in 60 years.

For me? It is time to stop and make a change. Let's work together. There are plenty of great organizations working to improve the situation. Here are a few:
I hope you will commit today to donating and encouraging your friends and family to do the same.
