The image above was borrowed from that same WeFeedback, a phenomenal social media initiative of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), the world's largest humanitarian organization that fights against the chronic hunger that burdens families all over the world. Now look at it again. You'll also notice the text on the image - A $20 sushi platter would feed 80 children. Yes, I am barely a year out of college with bills, loans to repay, and numerous expenses (rent soon!) but if I can afford lunch, I can't afford not to do the world some good.
How does WeFeedback work? It's simple, really. You choose your favorite food, put it into the Feedback Calculator with the estimated cost, and calculate exactly how many hungry children it would feed. Then, you donate that exact amount. Where does it go? Anywhere humanitarian aid is needed. Around 80% of it is bought in the developing world and about a third is purchased in the very country where it is needed. In these situations, those that are hungry are fed, and, those that are producing the food find a market for their goods, which helps support and build the local economies.
