Did you know that:
7.7 billion people live on earth?
821 million people go to bed hungry each night?
60% of the world’s hungry are females?
45% of deaths in children under 5 years old is caused by poor nutrition?
1 child dies every 10 seconds from hunger?
⅓ of food produced around the world is wasted?
A well-fed planet
Imagine a world without hunger. Just picture it.
All children playing happily outside, completely carefree.
School children able to focus on school work, instead of worrying about their next meal.
Mothers worldwide able to raise their children in good health.
Families able to lead a healthy, productive lifestyle.
What a world that would be.
Convenience at its best
We are all busy people. Between our demanding jobs, never-ending errands, and adorable families, there’s hardly any time left for much else.
But imagine if there was a way to give back, despite the lack of time. A convenient way to help feed the hungry around the world, in under 5 seconds.
There’s an app for that
ShareTheMeal. An app that lets you feed a child for a day, a week, a month, 3 months, or a year — for as little as 50 cents USD ($0.50). All this at the touch of a button.
According to the ShareTheMeal team, their mission is to achieve a world with zero hunger.
“We want to ensure that every child has regular access to food and to achieve a world with zero hunger. Together, we believe that we can be the generation that ends global hunger.”
The next steps against world hunger
The app has been around for some years now. Unfortunately I only recently heard about it.
But I have already started making the most of it. Here’s how I’m using the app and how you can too.
A team effort?
Are you ready to do something life-changing? Download the app to get started.
If you are not interested in downloading the app, you can also give through my team. This link allows you to use the app temporarily, without installation. I do not receive any form of compensation.
To date I have given 63 meals individually, and 17 meals on the team.
Less than a dollar.
$0.50. That’s what it will cost you to feed a hungry child for a day. So what do you say? Are you in?
