Make 2013 the year that you actively do something to help change hunger! Hunger Response International has lots of opportunities to get involved through the Rice Raiser Campaign and the Have-A-Rice-Day Movement. Plus there are new initiatives coming soon that we are excited to share with you.

Select one of the 2013 four global projects and set yourself a goal to raise support for the people in that country and collect food for your local food bank at the same time. Here's some ideas:

  1. set up a fundraising page - we'll help by providing you with pictures of your selected project
  2. hold a dinner and share your goal for your selected project - we can provide information and maybe even provide a speaker
  3. participate in a personal fitness challenge and get people to support your raise funds for your selected project
  4. have a bottle drive, bake sale, garage sale or book sale to raise funds on behalf of your selected project
  5. Initiate the Rice Raiser Campaign with your friends at school, at church, in your group or club or even at work! Register online at www.hungerresponse.org

You can be the change you want to see in hungry people's lives here at home in your own community or around the world in:  

India - Slum School Lunches India -  help 60 children get nutrition and  an education through school lunches.

Laos: Rice Gives Life! Laos -help poor families become more food secure through developing irrigated rice paddies. (a $4 - $1 CIDA-matched project)

Rwanda: Piggy Power! RwandaPigs can be power agents of change to families struggling for food in Rwanda.

Sierra Leone: Learning + Doing = Food! Sierra Leone - through school gardens, children can be fed nutritious food while learning about agriculture methods and nutrition. Mother's clubs are also taught through these gardens.

Something you can do right now is to share this with your friends and if you haven't already done so, like our facebook page: www.facebook.com/HungerResponse
