We’ve got computers and cell phones, back yards and barbecues, closets near capacity, and store after store ready to sell us more.
That changes our perspective.
Surrounded by abundance, housing becomes a matter of status, not shelter. Clothes are deemed unusable because of style, not wear. Water flows freely in long hot showers or summer slip-n-slides. Food becomes entertainment, consumed as a backdrop to social gatherings.
But there are many places in our world where morsels of food and sips of water are a matter of life or death. Every day, hunger claims the lives of 16,000 children. Another 5,000 children die from water-related illness—every day.
Hunger. Thirst. Life. Death.
You can bring hope.
What Can We Do?
During Celebration of Hope 09: Hunger and Thirst, we have an opportunity to come alongside people who live with hunger and thirst by participating in three challenges:
We Stand: 5-Day Food and Water Challenge
We will take a stand against global hunger and thirst by participating in the 5-Day Food and Water Challenge.
We Serve: Meal Packing
We will join with others to pack 4 million meals, and serve children in Zimbabwe who are in desperate need of food.
We Give: Solutions to Hunger and Thirst
We will give to those who hunger and thirst by providing funds for food and clean water solutions.
Support for 5-Day Challenge
