Now with the famine becoming even worse in the Horn of Africa we have set a new goal, feed the hungry children. Simply clicking on the banner to the right and doing some very basic surveys you will be helping the World Food Programme feed hungry children. With things so dire your support has never been more important and just a few minutes of your time can make a massive difference.
In February 2008, FIFA World Soccer Player of the Year Kaka, Ghana’s President and the Mayor of Milan joined Josette Sheeran to announce the “Fill the Cup” campaign in Milan’s Piazza Duomo. Join Kaka in helping to make the dreams of the world’s poorest children come true by filling the “Red Cup.”
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian aid agency. WFP plans to feed over 100 million people in 77 of the world’s poorest countries this year.
The ‘Fill the Cup’ campaign aims to use the symbol of the Red Cup to raise awareness of global hunger, specifically involving hungry school children. About 59 million primary school age children attend school hungry across the developing world, with 23 million of them in 45 African countries.
A Nielsen Online Internet and Technology Report surveyed more than 2000 Australians and found people aged over 16 spent an average of 16.1 hours on the internet each week. Australian’s are spending a record amount of time on the internet, why not put a few of those minutes to good use and feed a hungry child!
