September is Hunger Action Month – a month dedicated to taking action around fighting against hunger and food injustice. And this year, it’s also the month we celebrate Sukkot, a holiday that calls to mind the blessing of having enough to eat, and the importance of helping others who don’t.
This month, in part 2 of our ongoing crowdsource funding series, we scouted some great anti-hunger related projects that are currently campaigning for support. We don’t know the people involved in these projects personally, but we think the work they are doing to fight hunger locally, nationally, and abroad is worthy of some serious attention. We hope you do too!
Leather Bracelets for Hunger This IndieGoGo campaign launched by Global Ties envisions a world without hunger. To help get there, they are selling beautiful, simply designed leather bracelets. Each bracelet bought equals money that will go directly to feed people in need around the world. Goal: $50,000 / Deadline: October 5, 2013
