Ola friends! For my 27th (super hyped lockdown and in isolation) birthday, I'd like to raise some funds for a cause I feel deeply for - fighting hunger amongst the underprivileged. It never really hits me how lucky I am to have had easy access to food and water all my life, until I come across facts like the below.
- World Economic Forum: 3.1 million children under five die from malnutrition each year, about 10,000 a day.
- United Nations study: About 820 million people simply do not have enough food to live a healthy lifestyle. That's one in nine people that go to bed hungry.
No pressure whatsoever, but if you'd like, I humbly ask you to join me to make a small difference to a little's kid's life, by donating to Action Against Hunger, a charity that has been given a full 4-star rating for 13 consecutive years by Charity Navigator (the largest and most-utilised evaluator of charities in USA) for its efficiency and transparency.
I will then ask for a matching contribution from my company, such that every cent you donate goes that much further. (hopefully double!)
Happy giving and keep safe :)
