Giving back as a way to give thanks is very important to all of us at The Motherhood, as an agency and as individuals. And with Thanksgiving just around the corner, giving back is at the top of our minds right now.

This year, we hope you’ll consider joining us in supporting the United Nations World Food Programme’s ShareTheMeal app, an inspiring, global effort that’s already making a huge difference in feeding kids around the world: The app makes it possible for people to donate as little as $0.50 to feed a child for a day.

The UN World Food Programme’s important work was covered during a powerful 60 Minutes segment about the hunger crisis in Yemen earlier this week. (The ShareTheMeal app raised donations for Yemen in May and June 2017.) To see how using the app can help feed kids around the world, watch this one-minute video overview:

Here’s how you can get involved yourself:
  1. Click here to get the app
  2. Take a food photo (like you might anyway for Thanksgiving!)
  3. Place a #ShareTheMeal filter on the photo (a special one will be available for the holiday)
  4. Post to social media using #ShareTheMeal to encourage your community to join the global movement to fight hunger
For Thanksgiving, ShareTheMeal will be fundraising to help Syrian refugees in Jordan, northeast Nigeria, Haiti and Rohingya refugees, aiming to reach a goal of feeding 1,000 children for one year.

If you’re planning on giving back this season, we encourage you to download the ShareTheMeal app and/or sharing it with your communities, especially between Thanksgiving (Thursday, Nov. 23) and Giving Tuesday (Tuesday, Nov. 28). It’s easy and can be hugely impactful through our collective efforts. We will be using it and encourage you to join us!
