Thank you for responding to our matching gift challenge. You joined more than 7,230 other people—and together, you donated nearly $850,000. With my $500,000 match and the additional matching funds from other donors, that’s more than $1.5 million to help build the political will to end hunger!

2020 was a challenging year and we have a lot of work to do in the months ahead for people struggling with hunger and poverty. But just thinking about what this money will accomplish gives me hope and fills me with joy and gratitude—and pride in the big hearts of my fellow travelers and Bread members.

I am a proud Bread for the World member because like you, I believe we can end hunger, and together we’ve made tremendous progress.

Thanks to our collective effort—we’re making a huge difference in the lives of people experiencing hunger.

Thanks, and congrats to all involved!
