Last Sunday there was a huge storm around Ottawa. I was at the cottage and we lost power for 48 hours. As a result of the power outage, we had to throw out any food that was in our fridge.
Wasting perfectly good food annoys me because I know that there are people in the world without enough food to feed there families.
Right now, 11 million people in the Horn of Africa are facing a hunger crisis. The UN has declared famine in parts of Somalia.
There are lots of ways you can help.
Perhaps you can join me and donate your lunch money to one of the many agencies. My girlfriend started a Facebook event to encourage people to donate their lunch money and I joining her by writing this blog post.
