On behalf of our families, THANK YOU for your support!!!!
Life is full of celebrations and definitely challenges and questions.
Now imagine yourself to be living a much different life. Instead of "why did my car break down" your question is "how can I travel the 5 miles needed to get enough water to prepare food for my children and get back in time before nightfall?" Or, "Dear Lord, where will the food come from that will nourish my children and thus allow their lives to continue?" Who will answer my prayers? Life is definitely full of challenges. And for many, these challenges are not temporary obstacles in life. This is life! Today, tomorrow, next week and next year.
Tonight, as we rest quietly in our beds contemplating the whys of our lives, an innocent child (actually closer to 7,000 children) will lose their battle with hunger. Children who would have loved the opportunity to play, to learn, to live. Children who fight each and every day for either a better life or simply for life. Some of these children live right here in the United States. They may attend school with your children, or go to your church or maybe live in that neighborhood you pass on your way to work.
Others may live in other countries where their hardship is almost unimaginable. Where their pain is second only to their desperation as they fight for survival. Regardless, all of the children we serve through Kids Against Hunger are innocent victims of their, in some cases, horrific circumstances.
We need your help to address this need. Your financial support provides meals for those in greatest need. Did you know that for every $1 donated, four children will receive a well-balanced meal packaged with love from Kids Against Hunger? What better gift can one give than the gift of saving a life?
Did you know, as a volunteer, your efforts will provide meals for almost 300 children when you donate just two hours of your time? Our volunteers, ages 5 years and up, experience the joy of using their own hands to give of themselves to help. They are desperately needed to help package the meals that are provided on a local level, nationwide and worldwide.
Please join us as we continue our mission to feed the hungry locally and the starving globally. Working together we CAN make a difference!
