Global Hunger

Today is Global Food Crisis Day. What can you do to help?

My brother, Jack sent my kids $100 with the task of them all agreeing on how to spend it without spending it on themselves (long story as what made him want to do this). The children decided to use $10 to buy some things to send to Alex (our new World Vision child), $50 to combat AIDS with World Vision and $40 to donate today to Compassion International to help fight global hunger. Their $40 will feed 3 children for a month.

We watched the video from the link above at lunch today. I want my kids to know how blessed they are and I want them to have a heart that breaks for the dying, hungry, and sick. May we give them a vision for love and opportunities to love the least of these.


  1. Thanks so much for posting this! This is an issue that's been on my heart recently- both in other countries and in the U.S. (probably on my own block!)

  2. What a great gift to give your kids. I may have to steal that one!

  3. That Jack is a good uncle for sure! That's good that you are exposing your kids to this as such a young age.
