Among all the troubling headlines from around the world this summer, are so many images of children living in unspeakable conditions, due to terrorism, war, famine and extreme poverty. It may feel that there is little we can do from here. Until now.
We have the opportunity to Change the World from Chattanooga, by packing half-a-million meals in an amazing event Sept. 14-16 at the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center.
The event is brought here by Feed My Starving Children, an organization that has created safe passageway and delivery channels to get food where it is needed most, for just 22 cents a meal.
Each meal is a specially formulated combination of protein, rice and veggies that was created by a physician. That’s because children whose bodies are severely malnourished can die if they are given the wrong food at this highly vulnerable stage.
Children who are fed these meals, called Manna Packs, grow strong and healthy. There are four ways you can help this cause:
1. Have your office, church group sponsor the event by Aug. 31.
2. Volunteer to pack meals for two hours – it’s a fantastic fun event.
3. Can’t be there? Make a donation to buy food for the event. It’s tax deductible and makes a huge difference.
4. Help spread the word. By sharing this link on your social media or inviting your friends, family, organization or Sunday School class to get involved.
Think you can’t change the world? Think again. Together, we can make a difference. Let’s change the world from Chattanooga.
