Hunger is a critical problem today. 13.4 million children in America live in poverty. That is approximately 1 in 6 children.
The current economy is hurting even more families financially while donations of money and food are decreasing.
What if there was an easy way for you to help? What if a donation of your time and/or money could be multiplied due to the generosity of some businesses also concerned about this problem?
What Is the Pledge to End Hunger Campaign?
The Pledge to End Hunger is a campaign with the goal of ending childhood hunger in America. This campaign is bringing awareness to the problem and encouraging individuals to get involved and be a part of the solution.
How Does It Work?
For every pledge made via the online form at http://www.pledgetoendhunger.com, Tyson will donate 35 lbs of food products (the equivalent of 140 servings) to be used to help those in need. For your pledge, you can choose to share the Pledge to End Hunger website with others, volunteer your service and/or donate to Share Our Strength.
In less than 28 hours the first 1,000 pledges were made. That was enough to fill an entire semi-truck full of food. Now it is your turn to join the movement and make a difference. Go to http://www.pledgetoendhunger.com and submit your pledge. Join me in doing our part to load the next semi-truck full of food to be delivered to a local foodbank.

Thank you for helping us spread the word!
Today is a big day – we’re making our big push to reach 3,000 pledges. This will help us fill two more trucks. We can’t decide where to send them until they’re loaded.
Can you help us by:
– signing The Pledge at http://tr.im/blcmt
– use Facebook, Twitter, and email to ask others to join you
Thanks again. Let’s fill the trucks today!
Pledge to End Hunger
Thanks for making the Pledge to End Hunger a reality. I have made my pledge and am working to get the word out to fill up more trucks with food!
Just reading this now after the fact. Would love to sync up with you and figure out how we can help.
BetterHumanRace.com raises money for charity through people’s Google searches and Amazon purchases. No time or money required. Would be interested in adding Pledge to End Hunger as one of the beneficiaries.
Thanks for the willingness to help. I will pass along your desire to an appropriate person.
Also, I added your search engine to my site “Search Your Heart Out For Charity” at http://www.squidoo.com/searchforcharity. Feel free to check it out and vote for BetterHumanRace.com and any others that are your favorites.
Thank-you so much for helping stress the importance of tending to the hungry people in our own country who now more than ever need the support of their fellow citizens.
From now until November 4th, Here’s Life Inner City New York (http://www.hlicnyc.org) is hosting an event, called “Dine In” to sponsor a box of food (love) to be given to hungry families just in time for Thanksgiving.(http://bit.ly/gBu8Q). Each “Box of Love” feeds a family of six and includes a ham or chicken along with vegetables, potatoes, juice, yams, apple or cranberry sauce, bread, fruit, dessert, and more…plus Scriptures and children’s literature. Since this is time sensitive information, I am asking if you can help spread the word, donate, or even volunteer?

To help local not for profit food banks and soup kitchens, a few of us have created a team on the website http://www.iwon.com and if our team takes one of the top three spots, we would win money for our cause. We are currently in 4th place. Not everyone can afford to give money, but anyone that plays on on our team would be helping us reach that goal. Our team is Angels Against Hunger. You only need an e-mail address and date of birth to sign up. Go to http://www.iwon.com, create an account, then go to http://www.iwon.com/teamInfo.jhtml?teamId=183417 and click join this team.
