End World Hunger 2017 is driven by the vision of a world free from hunger. In a world where we are all connected, there is no excuse why 15,000 kids a day should die simply because they do not have enough food to eat.
Our mission is to end hunger in 2017 by fundraising 30 billion dollars to Action Against Hunger (the number one charity organization currently fighting this crisis) using the power of social media. The United Nations has publicly stated that it would cost an approximate 30 billion dollars per year to end this food crisis across the world.
There are numerous amounts of ways that this could be achieved, however, we have come up with a way where every person on the Facebook platform could contribute a small amount towards reaching this goal. There are currently 1.86 billion active Facebook users. If each user donated $16.14 we would be able to reach our goal of ending world hunger in 2017. We are connected like never before, we have a voice, we have a chance, we can be the generation to End World Hunger.
The End World Hunger 2017 team’s very own Founder Corey Pinto will raise awareness by running 30 miles and biking 40 miles per day for the next 43 days beginning July 1st. Corey will travel 70 miles per day from NY all the way to Los Angeles, California! A total of 3000 miles! Corey hopes runners and cyclists from all across the nation will join him on his route.
