Hi I am Moksh Desai. I am a 13 year old 8th grader, at a Middle School in NJ.
The COVID-19 Global Pandemic has disrupted our life. All of us are confined to our homes and cannot have our usual fun activities, sports and/or entertainment.
However instead of focusing on everything that’s missing in our lives, let us take a moment and be grateful for everything that we have. However, there are a lot of people in America who struggle for the basics in life such as food. According to the USDA's 2019 Household Food Insecurity in the United States report, more than 37 million people in the United States struggle with hunger. And that was before the Pandemic!!!
During these challenging times, I am thinking of:
- All the children in America who are deprived of their school meals
- All the daily wage workers who do not have the means to sustain their families
- All the senior citizens not having access to proper nutrition
Our hearts go out to them, we want to help, we think about them... but do not always take action. We either get distracted before we get to it, or we feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem. But, I have decided to take action. I know, all alone I cannot make a huge difference...
I am setting the table for a hunger-free America. Over 40 million people are served each year through the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks. I have started this fundraiser to allow children, families, and seniors to sit down at the table and share a meal.
The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. I urge you to visit www.feedingamerica.org and familiarize yourself with their noble and effective work. You can also hear about their work in the video above. Please note that your every dollar, helps secure 10 meals.
I request you to give a gift today to help provide healthy meals to those in need. Our country needs your help, our fellow Americans need your generosity more than ever before!
Please click on the Donate button. Remember Feeding America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which makes your donations tax-deductible.
Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for your support!
Stay Home and Stay Safe.
