Give away seven cents ... keep $9.93

"Almost all of the deaths from hunger ... can be stopped. The cost to do this is about $195 billion a year, according to the United Nations. Recently, 22 developed countries ... pledged to work towards each giving 0.7% (a little less than 1%) of their national income in international aid, which would raise the $195 billion. Some countries are slow to meet their pledge."

That would be merely seven cents out of every ten dollars.

What can you do?

Actually, that would be 7 cents out of each $10, not $100.

I could give that money to CRS, Caritas, Food for the Poor...anyone but the UN, promoter of abortion, condemner of Israel, observer of slaughter and genocide in Africa, just to name a few of their achievements.
