THE STORY:

ABOUT HUNGERTHON

Hungerthon/Imagine There's No Hunger is an annual campaign organized by WhyHunger to make a difference in the lives of the 50 million Americans and nearly billion people worldwide for whom hunger is an everyday reality.  

I have volunteered my time for each of the last 10 or 12 Hungerthons.  Without fail, WhyHunger's message connects with radio listeners in the NY metro area and satellite radio listeners across the country.  WHY? Because our hotline takes calls from individuals who fear that they can't feed themselves or their family . . . we may help them cut through red tape to connect them to federal or state programs for immediate assistance . . . we may connect them to a local food pantry or temporary shelter . . . and we will put them in touch with one of the thousands of community-based organizations with whom we partner so that they can rebuild their lives.

Founded in 1975 by Bill Ayres, Harry Chapin and Pete Fornatale, Hungerthon brings a month of exclusive online auctions, events, social media activation and broadcasts that culminate in a Radiothon – this year airing on Wednesday, November 14, Saturday, November 17 and Tuesday, November 20 on numerous satellite and tri-sate area radio stations, including SiriusXM Satellite Radio; CBS Radio Group: Sports Radio 66 WFAN, WCBS Newsradio 880, 101.1 WCBS-FM, 92.3 NOW; 102.7 Fresh FM, Clear Channel Radio Group: Q104.3 FM, 92.5 WPLJ, WABC Talk Radio; Merlin 101.9, Z10, 103.5 KTU, Power 105.1, 106.7 Lite FM; Univision: 1280 AM WADO; with support from Citadel’s WABC Talk Radio and 95.5 WPLJ; 90.7 WFUV and internet only stations: Soundpress.net and Rockland World Radio.com. Hungerthon partners include Yoko Ono Lennon, Hard Rock International, Bruce Springsteen and you! Learn more at Hungerthon.org.

Will you help me make this year's Hungerthon the most successful one yet?
