We've received feedback from a DBIC visitor about The Hunger Site and think it’s well worth bringing to your attention. If you click on their “Give Free Food” button once a day, a food contribution is made to 25 countries around the world. It costs you nothing. This food is paid for by the companies who advertise on the site. There’s an explanation of how it all works on the site – the FAQ’s are quite good.
You can also make similar contributions to other good causes, such as breast cancer. If you want a quick charity “fix”, visit The Hunger Site every day.
