Wailers help feed hungry, what can you do?
I WENT HUNGRY is a global music industry initiative started by the legendary reggae band the Wailers
to help eradicate hunger. Food is a human right.
The band decided to put their empathy into action upon learning that every 6 seconds a child dies of hunger, so they are enlisting their fellow musicians to go hungry by donating a portion of their tour catering to the I WENT HUNGRY campaign.
We invite our fans, fellow musicians, athletes, electricians, actors, artists, CEO's, students, mothers, fathers, and all our brethren and sistren in declaring I WENT HUNGRY! This is something that we can all impact. This is a stage that everyone can perform on. There IS enough food in the world to feed EVERYONE! 100% of all donations are being given to the World Food Program
Here is how YOU
can help: WFP is calling for a billion global citizens who have enough food to eat to take action to help feed the billion people on the planet who go to bed hungry each night. How to help
The Billion for a Billion campaign
, the first ever global citizens' campaign to end hunger, is aimed especially at the billion internet users in the world. It is based on the idea that many people doing a little can shift mountains -- or, in this case, help eradicate hunger.
As well as donating, YOU
can also help fight hunger by spreading the word, using the multiple tools available to web users today.
It could be as simple as posting the Billion for a Billion video on your Facebook page or tweeting to a friend the fact that a child dies every 6 seconds of hunger-related causes.

I Went Hungry is a collaborative project with WFP that was started by the legendary reggae band the Wailers to help eradicate hunger. The I Went Hungry campaign encourages musicians, businesspeople, students and families around the world to give up one of their daily snacks or meals and instead declare I WENT HUNGRY and donate that money to feed someone else in need.
