YouTube Trying to Feed The Hungry

Using the billion video views a day as a jump off point, YouTube is teaming up with the World Food Program to try put an end to world hunger.

Links in the video bring you to the World Food Program donation page where they give you some information about just how far your money will go. They say 25c will feed a child, $5 can nourish a baby for a year, and a list of a few other stats.

"Last week, we announced that YouTube serves over one billion video views per day. It's a pretty staggering number, right? That's also the number of people in the world who don't have enough food to eat. According to the UN World Food Program, for the first time in history, there are over 1 billion hungry people on Earth -- that's one in seven humans.

Today, on World Food Day, the World Food Program (WFP) is showing how you, the estimated one billion internet users, can help the one billion people who live in hunger:

  1. Yep, liberals and idiots and well wishers all over the world will send in bundles of money and the corrupt handlers of the same money will siphon off millions into their own pockets. Maybe even billions and the starving people of the world will just keep on starving..

    This road has been traveled so much that the ruts of corruption are so deep that anyone getting on the road is doomed to keep on going in the same direction with no end ever in sight.

    Until farm subsidies in all first world countries are abolished and direct help to each individual farmer in starving countries can make a living selling his products at a good price- the world will just keep on depending on the shipments paid for from your pocketbooks.

    You not only have to teach a man to fish you have to make it profitable enough to stop begging for fish and to want to fish himself.

    The minorities in America have become used to being entitled and having everything given to them. At your expense and at mine. The democrats have made generations of Americans slaves just so they will have their vote come election days.
