Hunger Site 5

I know it is common for people to decry charity and the abuses that often occur with it but... I believe that is the price doing good always pays. Even if there are those that take advantage of generosity, be generous anyway.

Hunger Site 2

Wikipedia has a little on this too and it seems that although it started off non-profit it no longer is, also, the site has not given out any report or breakdown of where the funds are actually going, because as the website says, it is not actually a charity, it gives 100% to other charities, no reports are telling what charities and how generous these charities actually are, I personally dont mind hand outs, its not a solution but it is better than nothing (if its not ging into the hands of greedy dictators of course), at first i thought that this was the best site i had ever seen and wanted to go to it everyday but then logic reared its ugly head and said look deeper into what your actually doing, although it externally seems like a nice gesture, think twice, as you should with all charities
no offence but im only 18 and i seem to have figured this out and it is sad how many here have easily had the wool pulled over their eyes, also, i guess the fact that is easy is a nice idea but its sad that it seems that the only way people want to help starving children is if its free and easy, what a sacrifice, good job guys (no offense about the last part, i feel bad now but im not taking that back)

Although this was obviously a good idea at the time of creating the site, and I'm sure the creator(s) had good intentions, to me this will just keep Third World countries dependent on handouts. The money should be spent on developing the countries in question in terms of infrastructure, economy etc. Although I agree there is an immediate problem of hunger, organisations like the World Health Organisation and the World Bank should be helping solve this problem anyway, so any extra money should be used to actually develop these countries. It seems to me to have become little more than a mechanism to keep Third World countries poor so they can produce cheap consumer goods for developed countries, whilst allowing the same people in developed countries to feel good about themselves without actually getting off their butts to do something worthwhile. Oh I'll just click once a day on this site and that's me doing my bit! Sorry to bust your bubble, but you're not. Do a fundraiser and send it to a school in Cambodia. Run a sponsored 10K and donate the money to a charity. That way the money won't go on overheads or line the pockets of corrupt governments in Third World countries who never allow the money to filter down to those who actually need it.

Hunger Site 1

The international food contribution campaigns are a well meaning but ineffective way to help people in need. The organizations are so corrupt. All of the money goes to local beaurocrats who line their pockets with foreign money while their own people go hungry. The food that is received is sold not given away. It is a disgusting and outrageous scam. Why not have local level programs to help the local population grow crops and raise animals? Most importantly, third world citizens need to be taught to have zero population growth. I know this comment sounds negative and cynical. I wish the world was not like this but it is. Americans are basically trusting and good willed people. Third world cultures take advantage of the good intentioned, naive Europeans and Americans.

Okay, I get to be unpopular and snide. 24,000 die daily. How many are born? Quite frankly, I am burned out on "you should feel guilty" pleas to solve world hunger. Has anyone seen a breakdown on exactly where the donations go? How much is spent on overhead (personnel, site management, bandwidth) The basic IDEA is good, but I have to agree with Ruby...prove to me it works.

Congratulations on undermining the incentives for a local agriculture industry to develop! Dumping free food into corrupt and impoverished nations is a sure way to keep them dependent on handouts. And some of your proceeds will let UN bureaucrats pay off their corrupt cronies too! Horray!

There is hope for mankind yet. I try to "click" everyday here in Melbourne, Australia. Isn't it fantastic that ordinary people all over the world can join in this wonderfully humane civilized effort. Salutations to the unique human being who started it and to the generous caring sponsors. More power to the civilized of this world. I intend to make sure that anytime I can be a customer I will be.

this is a great chance to help feed the hungry without even spending any money or time. all you have to do is click on a little square once a day and sponsors send about 2 cups of food to starving people. you don't even have to register or receive email from them. it's a win win situation.

A wonderful worthwhile site, well worth a visit, since finding it in Sept 99 I have only missed a few days. It is a practical and easy way of donating food to hungry people, I often find it too distressing to watch or read about world hunger, but this is amazing and so easy to do! I am a happier person for finding it, and I have found a lot of great sites and bought their products after clicking on the sponsors buttons.

You can 'donate' money to hungry people without having to pay! They get the money from advertising banners that you see when you 'donate'.

Great site for a great cause. I was born in Bangladesh (left almost 20 years back) where countless kids and people die of hunger everyday. So I made a habit to click the DONATE button regularly. Together we can make a difference. The Hunger Site and the Sponcers are doing a great job!
