A letter from Executive Director Danny Glenwright.
Your support has helped us feed hungry children in the past.
Now I come to you again, as we enter the final weeks of 2016 with our budget stretched to the limit by simultaneous hunger crises, from Syria to much of sub-Saharan Africa.
The fight against hunger this holiday season needs you.
And the timing couldn’t be better. This December, as we prepare to commemorate 150 years of our great country in 2017, you can make a difference around the world and also help Canadian kids learn how their contributions can save lives.
This year, you can help children like Prahlad (pictured), who received the care and treatment he needed to regain his strength thanks to your support, and you can share the power of charitable giving with children and youth right here at home in Canada.
When you honour a loved one by giving a small monthly gift of $20.17 for the calendar year of 2017, you will be instilling the gift of giving and commemorating the Canadian tradition of charity as we mark 150 years.
Through your compassionate, charitable example, children and young loved ones in your life will learn how their contributions can save lives. You will help them grow into generous and giving adults.
But most importantly, your monthly gift will ensure more children around the world can celebrate their fifth birthdays.
When you sign up to be a monthly donor in honour of a loved one, we will send a holiday greeting card from you that tells your loved one about your shared commitment to ending child hunger.
Please know how honoured we are when you choose to make a gift to Action Against Hunger.
Best wishes over the coming holiday season,
