Please note the campaign below has now ended. However, the spirit of this post still stands! Proverbs 3:27 – “Do everything you possibly can for those who need help.”
Hello friends! I feel like I’ve been MIA on my own blog and for that, I apologise. Life gets uber distracting, you know? However, I am here with some important things to share with you and with a recipe that’ll hopefully make you forgive my absence!
The other day, I had just finished a late shift at work and was so fatigued; I just wanted to fly home. As I was coming up to the station to get my train, I was stopped by a young girl and her brother, asking me for some money. Now normally, I don’t carry cash on me, I always have a card so I began to apologise about not having any money to offer them. The young girl immediately countered me and said “Not really money, just food”.
I can’t tell you how my heart cracked a little. I’m quite an emotional person and my empathy for people can be exhausting. In my mind, I pondered how so many humans don’t have one of the most important elements we all need to survive. Furthermore, I thought about how there are only a few means that these humans have to get even one meal a day.
“Did you know that every 30 SECONDS, a child dies of acute malnutrition?”
It’s dispiriting and to be honest, what bothers me most is the fact: I don’t have enough to help the many that are hungry.
We can’t save everyone; however, we can take steps to help the ones we can. This is why I’m teaming up with Dini at The Flavour Blender & Action Against Hunger charity (with a bunch more awesome food bloggers) on the For Food. Against Hunger campaign.
This event is running ’till the end of August, and I invite you all (food bloggers and wonderful readers) to participate and take just that one step to help a child have a decent meal today. If you are a food blogger and would like to participate, please visit HERE. As a reader, you can simply choose to donate to the Action Against Hunger crowdfunding campaign HERE – seriously, any and all donations are welcome.
I ended up buying the girl and her brother a few groceries and paying for their hostel stay for a night. It seemed like such a small gesture as I kept thinking how they needed much more than just that. However, the little you do for someone today, could be the very thing that keeps them alive for tomorrow.
