. Feed a hungry child campaign?
There are millions of children in the world who are hungry right now and they need food. Did you know that at every five seconds a child dies because he or she was hungry? Read these facts on hunger…
For a hungry child, going to school is not that important but having enough food to eat is. We pledge in committing ourselves to pitch in and do all that is possible to feed as many hungry children as possible in our community outreach.
“The difference between what we are doing and what we are capable of doing would solve most of the world’s problems.” – Mahatma Gandhi -
Action plans for the FAHC campaign?
1. to enlist some of the most needy orphanages/schools/charities that take care of poor, destitute, and underprivileged children.
2. to provide assistance with the feeding needs of the identified charities and to continue assisting them when they need it most.
3. to encourage, collaborate, and work with partnering individuals and organizations to join the fight against global poverty through FAHC campaign that draws on all of your kind support.
We intend to raise the funds for FAHC campaign by a voluntary ‘Group Book Project’ at My Dhaba where food lovers from all around the world participate and contribute to the finished product which is going to be intriguing treasuries of original traditional home cooking recipes. The contents of the books will remain free to read at the pages of My Dhaba, participating food blogs, and web sites for online use. The hard copies will go in for a sale. The FAHC campaign will benefit from 100% of the author royalties.
How can you support? Here is our open invitation to all of you, the food lovers and friends – you can help feed a hungry child by participating and collaborating at FAHC campaign. All we need from you for now is your generous contributions of your favorite original home cooking recipes and pictures endorsed to the Group Book Project. My Dhaba will take care of other things. These contributions will be followed up with a landmark publishing and fundraising sales of the cookbooks. We will look forward to your contributions. The name we suggest for the initial publication is …
