Since it was African famine victims who set me on the course to end food waste, I feel compelled to do what I can to help those suffering from hunger.
From June 1 to June 10, I'll be auctioning off items that I made or my friends donated. ALL the proceeds will go toward a charity that sends supplies to disaster survivors, including the millions of people dying from famine in Yemen, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Somalia.
According to Unicef USA, 1.4 million children are likely to die of starvation in the four-country famine crisis. Not 1.4 million people; 1.4 million children.
Families are walking for days in search of food; some communities have lost all their toddlers.
We can do something! And in return for your generosity, you'll get to take home one of the items from my auction. *wink wink*
So please, check out the items, share if you feel so inspired, maybe let a friend know if you see anything he or she might want to bid on.
This is my first fundraiser so it's going to be small, but I hope that as my online presence and influence grows, I'll be able to raise large funds in the future. For now, every bit of your support helps.
I will never waste food again
I've been tired of throwing out food for years - not to mention tired of our huge grocery bill! I decided to make a change and vowed never to waste food again. In this blog, I'll show you how I do it.
