We Feed Back
April 19, 2011

When George became an ambassador to the UN World Food Programme, we told you about WeFeedBack - a site that lets you input your favourite food, and then donate the value of that food to hungry children around the world.

Just a few weeks into the launch, WeFeedBack has already raised enough money to feed 100,000 children. Not only that - our show is responsible for the most individual donors in North America!

Of course, that doesn't mean the work is done. The UN says it needs more than $250 million to continue providing food and assistance to 7 million people in Afghanistan this year, mainly women and children.

Without that money, more than a million schoolchildren will be affected. In Afghanistan, it takes between 2-3 months from the time a donation is received until the food reaches the people who need it. So, it's an urgent situation.
