There's many people in the world who don't have some of the simple things we all take for granted. Clean clothing, shelter over our heads, education, or even food.

There's some small steps that can help the fight against hunger.

Take a few moments to click on the following links and help the world fight hunger.

There are also sites that you can donate money to, those that help directly fight the hunger. Your funds would go to help at least one person have meals for a short while, if more and more people donated, then more and more people would be fed, and could then have the energy needed to learn how to cultivate their own food.

Every step counts, and we're all taing baby steps, so help out the world and take baby steps too.

You can also play word games to donate food to the hungry, It's a small step, but like i said before, all the small steps count..

If you have other ideas on how to help with world hunger other then these, please use the following thread:

Thanks for taking the steps to help fight against the number one killer in the world. Starvation.

One word: IMPOSSIBLE

Really now, I don't believe that these organizations really do help the less fortunate. If I want to help (which I don't) then I'll go to the place itself and I'll be the one helping them. -_-

As long as there are divisions
amongst us, this problem
would not be resolved.

Every country has some sort of "food need" take the u.s for example even here, we have food banks that are used within the u.s

World hunger has a simple solution, but difficult to reach.

I rather focus on Aids >.>

It's not impossible to save a life one by one. In freerice's first month, they were able to feed about 3 million people to more than one country for a few days, for one person, it would be for a lifetime. going there to help wouldn't do you any good providing the fact that even UN organizations depend on donations and funding. so unless you're a billionaire or someone with the possession of more than ten billion acres full of food, let's stick to something realistic and helpful.

Sure. Well you're there, try not to catch anything. Good luck trying to help out everyone. So tell me? What are you going to do? Build everyone a proper house? Go there and bring lots of food and spread it around?
Pfftt...
Its impossible if you're talking about saving everyone who is starving. But it is possible to save one life at a time.


By donating you could be more helpful than actually going there.

Haven't you once thought that the money you donate may not actually reach those people? I rather risk my own ass going to a chaotic and disease-infested place to help the people there rather than sit in my chair donating money hoping that it may at least save one life but instead would go to some guy's wallet for him to spend.

Oh yeah I hardly doubt if that site, FreeRice, is actually legit. I mean come on, play a game and help someone? Isn't that just TOO easy? Here I am in a country suffering from rice shortage and they're giving rice to people just because you played some word game? PFFFTT, yeah right~ -_-

What are you going to do when you go to the disease-infested place? Do you have any money? The only thing you can do is watch the misery and have a risk of getting the disease yourself. the guy's wallet's empty. it's a nonprofitable website, we don't give him money, dangit, he'll probably never see the rice that was given by the sponsers of the website.

you don't think the site is legit?! let me ask you this. do you believe that the United Nations legit?! Because that site is linked to WFP, if you would know it enough, is the world food programme, the programme that gives out food. you're not fricking suffering on rice shortage when you're sitting there leisurely typing nonsensical words. why don't you go to the site and read it and then come back and argue back. there's even videos and statistics.

Most of the money goes to the people of the organization instead of the people with hunger x0

It's called a gimmick to get people to go to the site. When people go to the site, they are tempted to click on the advertisements along the sides and the sponsors of the site donate and get a tax deduction for the donation.
