I'm grateful that I have the option of having a full stomach. Granted, I seem to fill it too much, and could stand to lose a few (dozen) pounds. Conversely, on a typical day, an estimated 100,000 children* in the US go to bed hungry, and 13 million children* in the US are threatened with hunger.
This is in the United States of America.
During this season of giving, if you have enough to share, I would love to have you join me in the fight to end hunger in our country. Sharing doesn't always have to be a monetary donation. It can be giving of your time and your talents. Becoming active in organizations that lobby to change public policies is a great way to help.
Besides your local organizations, here are a few national programs:
Share Our Strength
Feed the Children
I'd like to hear your thoughts on hunger. What are we doing wrong, and what are we doing right in our country to end hunger? I will give an e-copy of my newest release, Scandalous L.A. Desires to one commenter, and I will make a $25 donation to one of these four charities in that person's name.
Thanks for listening,
