The . Hunger . Site

Today's morning post is just a quick reminder that unfortunately it's not always a pretty little world, but it's so easy to help to change that:

The Hunger Site was founded to focus the power of the Internet on a specific humanitarian need: the eradication of world hunger. Since its launch in June 1999, the site has established itself as a leader in online activism, helping to feed the world's hungry. On average, over 220,000 individuals from around the world visit the site each day to click the yellow "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button. To date, more than 300 million visitors have given more than 500 million cups of staple food.

The Hunger Site provides an easy way to for people to help those who need it the most - one click each day is all that it takes! (or six -- at the top of the Hunger Site are tabs that let you click for breast cancer, literacy, child health, animal rescue, and rainforest preservation.)
