What One Thing Would You Give Up? #FamineNoMore | Energizer Bunnies' Mommy Reports

 Marina from Energizer Bunnies Reports has a very important post on her blog here that I read today and I wanted to help her spread the word. We often forget how blessed we are and tend to take things for granted.While we sit down at our dinner tables tonight to eat our meal please think about the many families who don't even have a slice of bread to put into their mouth,or a clean cup of cold water to drink.We are so blessed and alot of us don't even realize it or appreciate it.
Did you know…
  • Hunger is stalking 12.4 million across the Horn of Africa, with 35% of all children in the region now facing emergency levels of malnutrition.
  • Starvation is a real threat for children in famine-declared areas of Somalia.
  • 30,000 children have already lost their lives.
  • Somalia is undergoing the worst drought in 60 years
Please watch this clip to see why we need to help:

How can we help:
Please help these families,we can partner with World Vision  by joining in the Famine No More campaign and giving up on something your family enjoys,do we really need the extra soda or snacks,do we really need the extra night of take-out food instead of cooking at home cheaper??

Let's pull together by taking that extra $10 to text in a donation to “FAMINE” to “20222″ and join World Vision in fighting hunger in the Horn of Africa.You can donate more if you would like to.Just think how many hungry children we will be helping to eat just by giving something up.

If you can't donate at this time you can still help by spreading the word - blog and share with your readers about this to encourage them to give to the Famine No More cause,tweet using the hashtag #FamineNoMore  and post on facebook,anything will make a difference.If your a member on different Social Sites you can post about this,please help because we can make a difference.

So,what one thing would you give up??? Please feel free to comment below,I choose to give up starch food for 2 weeks!!

Thanks for reading,please help spread the word with us,
