Hello there! Welcome to Pilot's CrowdRise page supporting WhyHunger - one of the six non-profit organizations we've chosen to focus on this giving season!
Over one in nine (815 million) people worldwide are hungry. WhyHunger is a leader in building the movement to end hunger and poverty by connecting people to nutritious, affordable food and by supporting grassroots solutions that inspire self-reliance and community empowerment.
Founded in 1975, WhyHunger works to support community organizations and social movements that are changing the systems, policies, and institutions that perpetuate hunger and poverty in our world. They are transforming our collective food system into one that is socially and economically just, nourishes whole communities, cools the planet and ensures the rights of all people to food, land, water and sustainable livelihoods.
That brings us to the brass tacks - we've set a goal of raising $4,000 for each of the NPOs on our list, and we need your help to meet (and hopefully surpass) this number!
It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season. There are bills to pay, parties to attend, gifts to buy and Black Friday deals to nab! But we're hoping this #GivingTuesday campaign resonates with our friends and family as an opportunity to connect with the true spirit of the holidays - one that's centered around generosity, humility, compassion, and kindness.
Thanks for stopping by our page and supporting the WhyHunger cause!
