Fight Hunger

According to Care:
  • More than 840 million people in the world are malnourished — 799 million of them live in the developing world.
  • More than 153 million of the world's malnourished people are children under the age of 5.
  • Six million children under the age of 5 die every year as a result of hunger.
Messed up.

A simple way to do something is to visit the hungersite. On the home page is a button. Each time you click on it a cup and a half of rice is donated to a charity that serves poor people. The web site, which is supported by advertising, says it has given 657 million cups of food to charities. It seems to be legit. It won a webby, the most important award for web sites, in 2000.

I added a link for the site on the right side of my blog. If possible, click on the hunger site whenever you visit my blog.
