Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.
—ISAIAH 58:10, NLT
Do you know that more than 140 million children still experience real hunger around the world today? And over 6 million children die each year from malnutrition? (Source: www.un.org)
Six million each year! That is a big number, so let’s try to break that down:
6 million divided by 365 = 16,438
So, every day, 16,438 children are dying of malnutrition. In comparison, that would be like 78 percent of the population of my town dying in one day. Can you even imagine that?
I sure can’t. But I know of a way that each one of us can help.
Skip a meal and donate the money you would have spent on that meal to help children in extreme poverty. It really is that simple!
Sometimes we get caught up in the big things that need to be done to tackle big problems. But here is a simple way to do your part to make an impact.
You might be thinking, “What if I want to make a bigger impact than just the money from my one meal?”
