The Hunger Site

The Hunger Site

"The Hunger Site was founded to focus the power of the Internet on a specific humanitarian need: the eradication of world hunger. Since its launch in June 1999, the site has established itself as a leader in online activism, helping to feed the world's hungry. On average, over 220,000 individuals from around the world visit the site each day to click the yellow "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button. To date, more than 300 million visitors have given more than 500 million cups of staple food.

The staple food funded by clicks at The Hunger Site is paid for by site sponsors and distributed to those in need by Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest. 100% of sponsor advertising fees goes to our charitable partners.Funds are split between these organizations and go to the aid of hungry people in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America."

Really neat, pass it along. :)

I'm doing a presentation on poverty in Africa for school. I was wondering, where's the best place to find up-to-date facts on poverty just in Africa?

Thanks to anyone who can help. :)

I'm curious

As a girl, I feel very ambitiuos and hope to do something big and drastic someday to help Africa. But as a girl of 15, I'm a bit wary of how much influence I'd have, and I am afraid of failure.

Without going to drastic levels (i.e., going to Africa myself), what can I do in my small hometown in the U.S. to help the struggle against poverty in Africa?


Life 'worse for world's poorest'

Swift action is needed to end extreme poverty, the UN report says
Many of the world's poorest countries are doing worse in 2005 than they were 15 years ago, a major UN report says.
Drastic action is needed by the world's leaders if they are to keep their promises to end extreme poverty, the 2005 UN Human Development Report warns.

Its 177-nation ranking puts drought-hit Niger last for living standards, with 12 African nations among the bottom 18.

The report, a week before a major UN summit, calls for changes in aid, trade and security policy to halt the slide.

More Live 8 DVD info.

A four-disc DVD set of the nine international concerts held on July
2nd as part of Live 8, an initiative organized by Bob Geldof to
pressure the G8 to address extreme poverty in Africa, will be
released on November 8th. A "generous" royalty from sales of the
package -- which features performances from artists ranging from
Paul McCartney's duet with U2's Bono on "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely
Hearts Club Band" to Pink Floyd's reunion -- will go to the Band
Aid Trust for African relief.

The first three discs focus on the shows at London's Hyde Park
and at Philadelphia's Museum of Art, with highlights from the
events in Paris, Rome, Berlin, Tokyo, Moscow, Toronto and
Johannesburg. In addition to the McCartney/Bono concert opener,
duets include McCartney and George Michael, Stevie Wonder and
Maroon 5's Adam Levine, and Coldplay and Richard Ashcroft.

The third disc closes with the entire Hyde Park lineup
performing the Beatles' "Hey Jude." The final disc features a
behind-the-scenes documentary of the London show, Pink Floyd's
reunion rehearsal and other extras.

"I hope this will be the biggest-selling DVD of all time," says
Geldof. "It deserves to be. More importantly, perhaps, it should
be, for it will help us achieve our goal of changing the lives of
the extreme poor for the better and making our generation the one
that helped end the disgrace of poverty."
