Micro ways to help end hunger by sylvng

If ending hunger is your cause, here are some microphilanthropy things that you can do to make a difference:

  • Follow @stophunger in Twitter – they’re giving $1 to end hunger for every follower they get this week.
  • Go to Kraft’s website and click on their ad – for each click Kraft is donating a box of mac and cheese to Feeding America. Over 30k boxes have already been donated, but their goal is to hit 1M boxes.
  • Stand Up and take action against poverty – participate in an event during Oct 16 – 18 this year to help achieve the Millennium Development Goals! Last year over 116M people took part. You can organize your own easy event such as distributing improved seeds or organize a free lunch.
  • Click at the Hunger Site to donate 1.1 cups of food to the hungry. Or buy something from the Hunger Site Store, which raised over 3.7M cups of food for charities around the world from Jul-Dec 2008.
  • Pledge to end hunger – promise to either donate, volunteer, or spread the word about hunger in America. $35 can feed a child 3 meals a day for more than a month.

Here’s another site that allows you to perform micro-volunteerism:
http://www.helpfromhome.org/
It provides information on easy, no commitment volunteering opportunities that can all be performed from the comfort of a person’s home. Almost all of the 450 plus actions listed on the site will cost nothing or very little to complete and take no more than 30 minutes to accomplish. Some can even be performed in under 10 seconds without getting out of your favourite chair or pyjamas!
