Our November Recipient – Feed the Children

Food :: it’s a necessity for our life. It’s something we have access to and tend to eat multiple times per day. We never have to worry about when the next time we get a meal will be. Food is many times something we don’t even think much about because it’s just a normal part of our everyday lives.

When was the last time you had to worry about when you were going to be able to eat? Have you ever had to worry about not getting food again? For most of us, food is something we take for granted in our day to day life. But for 821 million people around the world, food is hard to come by and they are left hungry.

We shared some shocking stats about hunger with you in our last blog post, but in case you missed it here are some of the stats about hunger in children specifically. 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. This is so heartbreaking.

Enter: Feed the Children. Since its founding in 1979, Feed the Children exists to end childhood hunger. It’s the cause upon which they were founded and the one they continue to fight for each day. Feed the Children provides food, education initiatives, essentials and disaster response as they help children and their families be independent and self-reliant. They are currently working in all 50 states, D.C., and in 10 countries around the world.

Your donations from the month of October are going to Feed the Children to help provide meals in Haiti. Haiti is the poorest and least developed country in the western hemisphere. Much of the population, especially children, face extreme poverty, hunger, and malnutrition. Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Feed the Children has been working to restore communities and create a brighter future. In Haiti, they are able to do more than just provide food. They are reaching and empowering children and their families to reverse and prevent malnutrition, health and water, education, and livelihoods.

We are so excited to partner with this amazing organization to help feed the hungry. With your donations from the month of October, we are helping Feed the Children provide 2030 children an additional meal each school day for one month, as well as enhance the nutritional value by adding more fruits, vegetables, and proteins. This equates to 40,600 well-rounded, nutritional meals that will be provided for the children in Haiti. Thank you for supporting DollarFund and partnering with us to make this possible. We are thrilled to be able to provide so many meals to the hungry children in Haiti and we couldn’t do it without each and every one of you!

With our growing community of donors, we’re ready to help fund the true forces of good in this world. All it takes is $1. We welcome you to join us and share this message.

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!
