The four diet books at the right are currently listed among Amazon's top-10 bestsellers. Is it any wonder how much the rest of the world loves America? Here's another weight-loss option to consider. Send the money you'd normally use to buy the crap that's making you so fat to people who don't have anything to eat.
Tonight, literally millions of children will go to bed hungry. Some of them will plead for food, not able to understand that their moms and dads simply have nothing to give them. Others — the little ones — will just cry with empty bellies. And some will be too weak to even cry. Maybe you can imagine watching your own child hurting, dying — and being unable to help. It's any parent's nightmare.
Poverty is the principal cause of hunger. The causes of poverty include poor people's lack of resources, an extremely unequal income distribution in the world and within specific countries, conflict, and hunger itself. There are an estimated 1.08 billion poor people in developing countries who live on $1 a day or less (Global Poverty Monitoring, World Bank). Of these, an estimated 798 million suffer from chronic hunger, which means that their daily intake of calories is insufficient for them to lead active and healthy lives.
Bread for the World (Hunger Facts: International)
Every day, almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes -- one child every five seconds... hunger is the most extreme form of poverty, where individuals or families cannot afford to meet their most basic need for food...
We can all make a difference to the lives of hungry children by making a donation to Fight Hunger. Even a small donation can help: for just US$34 the World Food Programme (WFP) can feed a child for a whole year. All donations we receive... are accumulated until we have a total of at least US$10,000. It is then allocated to help "close the gap" in a WFP school feeding project. (see partners here.)
The total cost of the diet books in the right column is $47.26
