Blog Away Hunger and Blogger Aid Changing the Face of Hunger

Blog Away Hunger
I stumbled on these blogs today. Take some time and check it out and then do something,no matter how small,help anyway you can.Blog Away Hunger is an effort started by Marc Matsumoto of No Recipes to raise awareness and money for the World Food Program. Part philanthropic endeavor and part social experiment, the goal is to mobilize the world of bloggers and quantify just how much sway we collectively have.
The World Food Program is a global aid organization dedicated to end world hunger; providing food to those who need it most, while building long term solutions that enable people to provide for themselves. Last year they helped 102 million people in 78 countries with 3.9 million tons of food. They are the only U.N. agency that does not receive regular allocations from the U.N. budget and so they need help from everyone to continue their work.

And who you ask is Blogger Aid Changing the Face of Hunger ? Glad you asked ! "We are a growing group of international food bloggers determined to make a difference. The love of food and community that brings us together continues to drive the compassion of its members to reach out to help those less fortunate than we are. In this ever changing world we are banded by a mission of helping to make a change in a world where starvation and tragedy affects such a profound number of people. Our mission is to raise awareness and funds for those in need in our worldwide community."
