Break the Chain The Hunger Site
It Is That Easy!

Updated (7/26/2002) As the old saying goes, if it seems too good to be true... Well, in this case it is true! The Hunger Site is real and makes feeding the world's hungry as easy as scrolling through a bunch of ads.

Subject: Feed the Hungry

Quite clever of the UN to do this. Go to the Hunger Site at the UN. All you do is click a button and somewhere in the world a hungry person gets a meal to eat, at no cost to you. The food is paid for by corporate sponsors (who gain advertising in the process because you see their logo). All you do is go to the site and click on the donate food button. It takes one second.

However, you're only allowed one donation, so pass the word.

Forward this to all in your address book. Why not?

The Hunger Site was founded in June, 1999. Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg, long-time friends and co-owners of EcologyFund.com bought the Breast Cancer Site and two of it's sister sites - the Breast Cancer Site and the Rainforest Site - out of foreclosure in August, 2001. They've since added the Animal Rescue Site to their arsenal of benevolent efforts.

The site is now part of CharitiesUSA.com a network of charitable sites that use the marketing power of the World Wide Web to get corporate sponsors to donate in exchange for advertising. Proceeds generated by your clicks buy food staples that go to the Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest for distribution to hungry people in more than 74 countries.

However, the e-mail chain letter cited above contains a few errors. The United Nations has nothing to do with the Hunger Site. Also, it says you're allowed only one donation. In reality, you're allowed one donation per day, so you can go back as often as you like.

If you want to share the news of this great site with friends, don't use the chain letter above to do it. A personal note from you would be far more convincing, anyway. Break this Chain!
