I had completely forgotten about the Hungersite after switching jobs, changing computers and not having my old bookmarks.
By clicking on the donate tab once a day you can give a cup of staple food to the starving people of the world without sending money. You can buy some of their t-shirts etc. and increase your giving but a click a day is an easy and painless way to give only requiring a minute of your time. A good use of a minute I think.
The website is sometimes very slow so you've got to be patient. They probably don't have many servers handling the traffic. Mornings are worse, no doubt people logging in from work so try other times of the day.
There are other affiliated sites equally worthy of your clicks like the Breast Cancer site, The Child Health site, The Literacy site, The Rainforest site and The Animal Rescue site. You can visit and donate to these sites with the same click of your mouse once a day. There are index tabs on the top of the Hungersite page which will take you to these sites.
Six clicks to make this planet a better place to live. Easy.
Tell your friends.
A quote from the Hungersite:
"HUNGER: DO YOU KNOW THE FACTS?
It is estimated that one billion people in the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition. That's roughly 100 times as many as those who actually die from these causes each year.
About 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes. This is down from 35,000 ten years ago, and 41,000 twenty years ago. Three-fourths of the deaths are children under the age of five.
Famine and wars cause about 10% of hunger deaths, although these tend to be the ones you hear about most often. The majority of hunger deaths are caused by chronic malnutrition. Families facing extreme poverty are simply unable to get enough food to eat.
In 1999, a year marked by good economic news, 31 million Americans were food insecure, meaning they were either hungry or unsure of where their next meal would come from. Of these Americans, 12 million were children. The Hunger Site began on June 1, 1999.
Please remember to click every day to give help and hope to those with nowhere to turn. Every click counts in the life of a hungry person."
