Today is World Food Day. STOP Hunger
World Food Day is observed every year in more than 150 countries and guess what, today is World Food Day. This day was founded by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1979. It was founded to raise awareness of the issues behind poverty and hunger.
Life gets tough and tricky but everyone deserves to live life on a full stomach. When I’m hungry, I become Naomi Campbell, throwing around phones and everything Campbell. It is important to keep in mind that other people are going to bed hungry. One thing I have learned about life is that no matter how bad it gets, someone else has it worse than you. So maybe I cannot get those wedges I have my eyes on but someone somewhere doesn’t have a single pair. It might sound cliché but as human beings, we cannot go on living our lives without taking a second to remember that there are other human beings just like us in need.
So that is why Michael Kors partnered with the United Nations Food Programme (WFP) to raise more awareness. Six Micheal Kors stores are participating in this campaign. The one in New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Rio, you had to stop in one of these stores to receive a free “Watch Hunger Stop” T-shirt. Your picture would be taken and live streamed to several digital billboards in Times Square. It’s okay if you can’t do all that, being aware of the day is good enough. We are taking baby steps here. Did you know about World Food Day? I just learned of it too. I guess you can learn something new every day.
