Help people struggling with hunger on #GivingTuesday

November 28, 2017

By Rev. David Beckmann

For many of us, our bellies are still satisfied from our Thanksgiving feast. We’ve gathered with friends and family to give thanks and enjoy the pleasures of a warm meal.  In most cultures, food is the hallmark of celebrations, but too many people around the world are celebrating milestones at empty tables. 

Today, on Giving Tuesday, I hope you will choose to support Bread for the World’s work to advocate for hungry people.  Thanks to Rick Steves, travel host and incredibly generous Bread member, all donations made today will be matched, up to $250,000

As in years past, if you donate $100 or more, Rick will match it AND send you a special thank you gift.

If you take advantage of Rick’s generous offer, your gift today will have double the impact for people struggling with hunger worldwide and it will help us continue advocating for critical programs that are a lifeline to millions of families in the United States and around the world.

Watch Rick’s video about his challenge to you.

Hundreds have already donated. I hope you will too.
