Global Food Crisis Day

Did you know that tomorrow, March 11, is Global Food Crisis Day?

WHAT IS GLOBAL FOOD CRISIS DAY?
Compassion International is partnering with radio stations, media, churches and bloggers to spread the word about the Global Food Crisis and raise funds that will make a real difference to those impacted by it.

WHY IS THE CRISIS?
Overshadowed by recent political and financial economic news, the UN World Food Programme calls the current global food crisis “a phenomenon, a silent tsunami,” that is affecting millions of families in every nation on every continent. This global food crisis is more rapid, urgent and devastating than any other in the history of our planet.

WHY IS THE CRISIS HAPPENING?
The cost of food staples have roughly doubled in many countries where Compassion serves. Some of the original factors that turned this trend into a world calamity recently include unstable oil prices, increased meat consumption in countries like India and China, droughts in major crop-producing countries, and increased production of biofuels.

But the great news is YOU can help!

There are two ways that you can help Compassion.

1. Go and visit the Compassion’s Global Food Crisis page here you can find more information and donate to the fund.

WHAT DOES THE GLOBAL FOOD CRISIS FUND DO?
– Provides food vouchers to children and families needing immediate relief.
– Provides seeds and agricultural tools so that families can grow their own food as well as earn extra income.
– Provides supplemental nutrition services at Compassion-assisted centers around the world.

2. You can add a widget to your blog. You can see the widgets HERE!

(imagine a widget here, alas wordpress.com does not allow flash)

So please take some time and help a child…13 dollars helps 1 child for a month…think of that!

So Go NOW and make a difference!
