2,400 of you gave $100 or more each, totaling $309,594. As promised, I matched the first $250,000. Together, we raised more than $559,000 to fight structural causes of hunger. All this money — 100 percent — was given to Bread for the World to advocate in our halls of government for policies that help the hungry both at home and abroad. This is not “handouts for the lazy” and it’s not “trickle down,” either. It is smart compassion in action, as good people surrounded by a sea of abundance struggle to simply feed their children.
Thanks to all who joined us in this exciting initiative. To learn more about the impact we’ll have, follow Bread for the World at bread.org. Thank you!
