I know some of you may think this is just one of those things. No, I don't think this is something to pass out for. Thousands of Filipino kids are suffering from hunger here and in Mindanao. That is one of the most war stricken places in the Philippines; and if you think about the people also displaced and see them; your hearts would probably break at the sight of them. In this day and age I think its not right that there are still a lot of people who suffer from hunger. The United Nations World Food Programme has been battling out this problem for a long time now but they still need our help. Just imagine yourself drinking that coffee you bought for 170 pesos, that can already feed about 17 children. I know you worked hard for it to enjoy what you want to have... but think about it, a warm meal can always get this kid throughout the entire day at school so he can educate himself, get a job and eventually get out of poverty. How can you not find a way to try and help?

The World Food Programme Philippines is going to have this great event called "END HUNGER: WALK THE WORLD 2011" on May 29, 2011. This is our chance to help and make a difference. Strap on those rubber shoes and participate in these events!

2K Walk = P250

5K Run = P500

10K Group Run = P10,000 (Composed of 10 members)

All the proceeds will go to funds that would help alleviate hunger in Mindanao. That bowl of grain and rice you purchase for them can go a long way for these kids who are not even sure to eat 3 times a day. Let's all make sure to participate this time and go to Mall of Asia at 5:00 AM on May 29, 2011 and get your act together. No matter how small our contributions are as long as we help our impoverished brothers and sisters in Mindanao you will surely feel blessed!! I'm going there so I'd like to see you all!

I'll also do my share by informing people at work and you should too. Please think of the kids while your at it! They really need our help!

It's so nice to see these big corporations doing their share in eradicating hunger. They did their part... how about you?

It's time for you to share... it's time to change someone's life!
Let's get them out of HUNGER and into SCHOOLS!
