This month, as we prepare for the release of The Hunger Games movie, Hunger Games fans are taking action to help fight hunger in the real world. We’re teaming up around the world to help The Harry Potter Alliance’s Imagine Better Project with their campaign, Hunger is NOT a Game.
Just like in District 12, there are lots of people around the world who don’t have enough to eat every day and who struggle to get by because of forces they can’t control – war, famine, and unjust laws. But we can do something about it! Just like Katniss, we won’t just sit by and watch it happen. We will take our fight directly to the Capitol itself to try to change our world’s perspective on hunger and eradicate it for good!
For the next month our friends at the Harry Potter Alliance are running the Hunger is Not a Game campaign so that we can all help with this issue – whether it be running a food drive at your local movie theater for the midnight release, signing Oxfam’s GROW pledge, or spreading the word about this important issue. You can join the campaign by visiting the HPA’s website: http://thehpalliance.org/imagine-better/hunger-is-not-a-game/. Together, we can stand up against the Capitol and get rid of hunger for good!
Another way to help end hunger would be to play English vocabulary games at Free Rice. For every answer you get it correctly, they will donate 10 grains of rice through UN World Food Program to help end hunger. We couldn’t think of a better way to expand your English vocabulary and yet help end hunger at the same time.
Not convinced yet?
The Hunger Games cast, World Food Programme and Feeding America are in too!
World Food Programme is also giving away 5 signed posters by the three main cast of The Hunger Games movie and all you have to do is to just visit World Food Programme and answer the Hunger quiz correctly. Don’t forget to donate too!
Meanwhile, remember not to waste your food and take lesser than what you need during meals such as buffet. You can always take more after you have finished eating those on your plate. The food you are wasting away could save someone else’s life.
