I know I’m a little late, but today is Earth Day. I was reading through the newspapers this morning and noticed multiple spreads on Earth Day and what we as citizens of the world could do. Me, being a fashionista looked for the fashion forward angle. Here’s what I came up with.
World Food Programme Feed Bag by Feed, $59.95
Buying one World Food Programme FEED bag feeds a child in school for one school year.
School feeding acts as a magnet, dramatically increasing enrollment, sometimes by as much as 100 percent. It also improves performance at school; children concentrate better on a full stomach.
Girls who go to school not only marry later, but have half as many children than illiterate women. Furthermore, these children are healthier and better educated.
$20 a year can transform a child’s life and provide the tools for a lifetime of self-reliance. School feeding is a simple but effective way to beat hunger and poverty.
The FEED Project is a partnership between the United Nations World Food Program and Lauren Bush, WFP Honorary Spokesperson.
