Our November Cause – Feeding the Hungry

Thank you to each and every one of you that supported DollarFund and continues to support us! We couldn’t do what we do without YOU. Your donations from the month of October will be gathered and given to fill the need of feeding the hungry.

Hunger is a huge issue all over the world. Did you know that 1 in 7 people are hungry. The World Health Organization considers food and nutrition security a top priority and basic human right. Without adequate food and nutrition, children are unable to reach their full development potential both physically and mentally. Nutrition deficiencies affect more than 2 billion people worldwide, causing a reduction in learning capabilities and livelihood development.

There are so many scary and shocking statistics across the globe when it comes to the amount of people that are hungry. Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year. One out of six children — roughly 100 million — in developing countries is underweight.  66 million hungry children attend school hungry and needing food.

It is our duty to come together, raise awareness and work to see hunger come to an end. DollarFund is excited to continue to partner with organizations that work towards feeding the hungry. If you know of any organizations that are working to feeding the hungry, we would love to hear about them. You can nominate any non-profit organizations you like that we should look at here.

We believe everyone deserves food and nutrition. With the donations from October, you will help us in making more progress in feeding the hungry. It only costs you $1 a month to make this wish a reality. Join today if you haven’t or share with your network if you’re already a member. We couldn’t do what we do without each of you sharing DollarFund with your friends and family and helping them sign up. Are you going to be one of the million?

RESPONDING TO THE COVID-19 CRISIS

COVID-19 has presented our nation with new and unprecedented challenges. It's left many of us trying to figure out how to help. At DollarFund, we'd like to do our part. Nationwide we're seeing our schools close. These closures impact over 20 million students that receive free breakfast and lunch at school as well as another 1.8 million who receive those meals at greatly reduced rates. This leaves parents desperate to not only find childcare so they can work, but left trying to figure out how to feed these precious kids. All March gifts will go to feeding these children around the country. Please consider joining us for the first time or making a one time donation to increase our impact!
