Send Bread for the World Christmas Cards
Here’s another way to help end hunger: send Bread for the World Christmas cards to your family, friends, and clients. The photo for this year’s card was taken in rural Afghanistan and shows a Hazara woman making the three-hour trip to her nearest hospital by donkey, accompanied by her husband and child. The Hazara are an ethnic minority in Afghanistan. Two other dramatic designs are also available. The cards cost $10 for 10 cards and envelopes. Please visit www.bread.org/store or call 1-800-82-BREAD to order.
2011 Hunger Report Released in November
The 2011 Bread for the World Institute Hunger Report, Our Common Interest: Ending Hunger and Malnutrition, will be released in both print and online versions on November 22, 2010. This year’s report offers recommendations to make the new U.S. focus on strengthening agriculture and nutrition in developing countries, including the administration’s Feed the Future initiative, as effective as possible. To launch the report, the Institute will host a panel discussion of Our Common Interest themes at the National Press Club, November 22. Beginning in late November, order or read the report at www.bread.org/hungerreport.
Update on Matching Fund Contributions
This July, a generous Bread for the World board member agreed to match—dollar for dollar—all gifts up to $50,000 received online and in response to our July/August newsletter article. Thank you to everyone who contributed. Your contributions totaled more than enough to meet the match, and the combined effort raised nearly $128,000 for Bread’s work to end childhood hunger!
“Unauthorized Immigration, Hunger, and Poverty”
As the November elections approach rapidly, Bread for the World Institute has produced a new resource focusing on both the economic causes of unauthorized or illegal immigration (primarily poverty and inequality in Latin America) and the socioeconomic challenges (including disproportionately high levels of poverty and hunger) such immigrants face once in the United States. The piece was written by Bread immigration policy analyst Andrew Wainer and can be accessed online.
