Today is World Food Day, and Here's How You Can Celebrate!
World Food Day is here! Our colleagues and beneficiaries are celebrating all around the world today, and we hope you are too! We've got an idea for how you can celebrate that’s fun, easy, and highly effective.
Launch a My Action Against Hunger fundraiser! You have an amazing resource in front of you — the collective giving power of your friends, family, and co-workers. By starting a fundraising campaign, you'll be able to spread awareness of Action Against Hunger and the important work we’re doing worldwide. Sign up now and get access to an exclusive participant center, where you can personalize your own fundraising webpage, send emails to your friends and family, and keep track of the money you’re raising.
Think that raising even a little bit of money won’t make a difference? Think again. Did you know that just $45 covers a full treatment regimen for a child suffering from severe acute malnutrition? Raise $45, save a life. Malnutrition is truly predictable, preventable, and treatable – but we need friends like you to help us get kids the care they need and deserve.
Need some inspiration? Check out some of our fantastic fundraisers!
- Justin is hiking through the Appalachian Trail
- Taylor donated his birthday to kids who don't get birthday presents
- Team Skarsgard fundraised in honor of their favorite vampire
Partner with us by becoming a fundraiser - we know you can do it! Let us know if you have any questions, we're always here to help. And have a great World Food Day!
