"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill

In light of the world we're living in today, the BT Global Inside Sales is hosting a virtual fundraising event from November 20th through the 23rd in order to raise funds for various food kitchens around the globe. This fundraising page is dedicated to raising money for Second Harvest Asia to benefit the Asia Region.

A little bit about this organization:

The founder of Second Harvest Japan, Charles McJilton, has developed food banking in Japan since 2000, and saw more needs and opportunities for food banking in other Asian countries. McJilton and some members got together and established 2HA to make a community through which food banks could share their best practices and support each other to grow so that food banks could support more hungry people in Asia.

Why is this important?

"As the coronavirus crisis unfolds, disruptions in domestic food supply chains, other shocks affecting food production, and loss of incomes and remittances are creating strong tensions and food security risks in many countries. Despite stable global food prices, numerous countries are experiencing varying levels of food price inflation at the retail level, reflecting supply disruptions due to COVID-19, currency devaluations and other factors…

…Higher retail prices, combined with reduced incomes, mean more and more households are having to cut down on the quantity and quality of their food consumption, with potentially lasting impacts on nutrition and health. The U.N. World Food Programme has warned that an additional 130 million people could face acute food insecurity by the end of 2020, on top of the 135 million people who were already acutely food insecure before the crisis, because of income and remittance losses."
