Earth Hour

Saturday, March 12, 2011


I recently joined a social network with a purpose.  It's a project from the World Food Program that aims to fight hunger in a revolutionary way.

It's called WeFeedBackan innovative global initiative using the power of our favorite food - French fries, burgers, chicken, chocolate cake (we all have a favorite) - to provide meals to hungry schoolchildren worldwide, helping them grow strong minds and bodies.

So how does the program work? First, you use the Feedback Calculator.  Enter your favorite food, estimate the cost, and you’ll instantly see how many children will receive a hot meal if you donate it or ”feedback”!  For example, I entered my favorite pansit Malabon which I estimated at PhP45 or $1.  I entered it in my feedback calculator and found out that it could feed 4 kids.  The next step is to donate the same amount (which I haven't done yet, sorry) and then we could see its impact.

You may want to join my network and let's help feed the hungry children.  You may track our "network impact" or how many children we are feeding and what we're giving them.

WeFeedback is an innovative, global campaign building on the premise that if we all do a little, we can achieve a lot. To put it in a nutshell, it’s about sharing food and changing lives.
