To fundraise for The Hunger Project, helping achieve their mission to end hunger and poverty by empowering people to lead lives of self-reliance, meet their own basic needs and build better futures.
I know no one likes being assaulted for donations in person, so that is why I am doing it via the internet (for now). This summer I am taking on the challenge to raise $5,000.00 for The Hunger Project! YAY!
This event/challenge was spurred by a lecture I attended in May where I heard Dr. Naana Agyemang-Mensah, the Country Director of The Hunger Project-Ghana, discuss the epicenter strategy The Hunger Project uses in Ghana to empower Ghana’s women and men to attend to their own issues of hunger and poverty. :) I was so interested by this talk that I continued to research the organization and its work, only to be impressed further by its methods. I discovered that The Hunger Project works in eight African countries, India, Bangladesh, Mexico and Peru to mobilize people to build self-reliance, uses women as key agents of change, and to work with the local government to build better partnerships ensuring that the needs of every community are met in a sustainable manner. Whew! Long sentence.
I love this model, but before I assault you with any more information I must apologize for any intrusion. If helping your fellow man (and more specifically woman) is not what you wan to do today you can just click past this. But if you are intrigued, I urge you to go to the websites below. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and if I can’t answer them I will see who can.
Oh and so you know, I do not receive anything for your donations just a mere self-given pat on the back for raising awareness and more importantly FUNDS for an organization that I feel very passionate about. Let your inner girl/boy scout shine and give me your dime!
*To donate (even $10 will help me to reach my goal) hit the donate button! Thank you guys! Together we will sort it out.
