Text in $10 to “20222″ and aid efforts to relieve Horn of Africa’s worst drought in 60 years #faminenomore

What would you give up

This week I’m giving up two trips to Starbucks and donating that money to World Vision’s efforts in the Horn of Africa. Here’s why:

  • 12.4 million are affected in the region
  • More than 35% of all children in the region are now facing emergency levels of malnutrition
  • Starvation is a real threat in famine-declared areas of Somalia
  • Some 30,000 children have already lost their lives
  • Worst drought in 60 years

World Vision has assisted communities in the Horn of Africa for 3 decades. Even now, our teams in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia are responding to this crisis with food, water, blankets and other critical needs for families.

You can help, too. Simply text your $10 donation to 20222 with the word “FAMINE” and your money will go straight to relief efforts in the Horn of Africa.

Can you give up ONE THING this week and help?

    I love the idea, and I know they are trying to make it easy for people, but I kind of wish they’d also have the $10 famine option on their website because not all of us have phones that text and can’t afford the $50 donation on the World Vision website. If there’s a place to go on their site where we can still give $10 designated for famine relief I’d love a link! I poked around trying to find one with no luck.
