Yes, this is the season of Christmas feasts and gifts piled high under the tree, but it’s also the season of giving to those in need.  Of course, in this difficult economy, when people everywhere are struggling just to meet their bills—let alone provide a memorable Christmas for their families—it can be hard to find the extra cash to contribute to a worthy charity; which is why I want to draw your attention to The Hunger Site, a truly wonderful website that allows you to help bring food to those who desperately need it—just by clicking a mouse.  Want more information?  Here it is, directly from the site itself:

The Hunger Site was founded to focus the power of the Internet on a specific humanitarian need; the eradication of world hunger. Since its launch in June 1999, the site has established itself as a leader in online activism, helping to feed the world's hungry and food insecure. On average, over 220,000 individuals from around the world visit the site each day to click the yellow "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button. Its grassroots popularity has been recognized with Web awards in the activism category — a Cool Site of the Year Award and a People's Voice winner at the Webby Awards. Since its inception, visitors at The Hunger Site and shoppers at The Hunger Site store have given more than 671 million cups of food.
The staple food funded by clicks at The Hunger Site is paid for by site sponsors and distributed to those in need by Mercy Corps, Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest), and Millennium Promise. 100% of sponsor advertising fees goes to our charitable partners. Funds are split between these organizations and go to the aid of hungry people in over 74 countries, including those in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America.
Got that?  You click, they feed.  Simple, elegant—and something that could only happen in this miraculous Internet Age.  If you’re so inclined, click over to The Hunger Site not just at Christmastime—but every day. 


  1. And ''clicked"! I'm going to add this link to my facebook and twitter as well. Thanks for the note, JM!

  2. You're welcome, A. Jaye—and thanks for clicking!

  3. Very interesting. Never heard of this site. I clicked it as well.

  4. I think I bucked the system, I opened the link to multiple tabs, and clicked for each one. Take that hunger... providing that made a difference. Here's to hoping.

    Wishing you, and those helped, nothing but goodwill and hipness from here to the stars,

  5. And wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the happiest, healthiest New Year, Jack!
