Sunday Doodlings: Change – can you spare $25 to help end hunger?

My niece Sarah, has spent much time abroad and here in the states working on important issues like, child slavery, world hunger, oppression and much more. I have always loved her passion for everything she does. Never half-way. She is always ALL IN! Her latest venture is no different and today I wanted to highlight it and see if you might be interested in supporting her.

 For 25 days, Sarah and a group of 25 others are giving up normal food and eating rice and beans. They will eat the same portion size as Cynthia, pictured above eats. Their goal is to get over 1750 partners to give $25 and agree to give up fast food for 25 days. The monetary challenge is not a lot. But in our society of fast food ‘addicts’ it would make a great statement if these 1750 also followed through on the second part of the challenge.

So here’s my challenge…will you join with Sarah and I? She needs a few more people to finish her portion of the pledge. The 25 will give up their rice and beans each day til they reach their goal. This morning Sarah confessed she was missing her morning coffee! This is definitely a life changing challenge for her and hopefully for the thousands who WILL receive much needed food. Their goal is to provide almost 200,000 WFP meals for schoolchildren in Africa and India.

You can read the rest of her story on her blog post at JVA Consulting. From her page you can sign up to support her. Thanks for considering!
