Special Post: Feeding Hungry Children Around the World

One of the biggest appeals for doing media work, in my opinion, is being given the opportunity to reach large numbers of people, you wouldn’t otherwise reach, with important information. I think it’s important to bring awareness to the different causes out there, especially when they are lesser known, because I know that there are countless other people who are unaware of them as well.

Now, I also condone doing your research. There are wonderful charity efforts out there and while I support the ideas, causes and fund raisers, you must make sure you are comfortable with the organization.There are a lot of thing that go along with charities, including how your donations are managed and who actually receives the benefits.

 I am a host at AfterBuzz TV, www.afterbuzztv.com where we do after-show podcasts for various shows that are on TV. My AfterBuzz TV Scouted after-show co-hosts last night were Jackie Miranne and Brittany Brower, who were calling in from NY and FL, but my in-studio co-hostlast night (pictured above) was a special teddy bear! Maria Kanellis, host of the WWE after-show, brought the bear in, and we decided it was the perfect opportunity to have him there and to promote his cause.

The FEED 5 (and FEED 3) Bear is made in partnership with FEED Projects to raise funds to feed severely malnourished children under the age of five. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each FEED 5 (and FEED 3) Bear goes directly to the creation and distribution of Plumpy’Nut®, a lifesaving therapeutic food paste, through the non-profit Edesia. Each FEED 5 Bear that is sold will provide Plumpy’Nut® treatments to five children (and 3 children with the purchase of the FEED 3 bear). For more information, go to www.feedprojects.com amd www.teddysharebears.com

This is a great idea for a holiday gift, but it also is a wonderful gift idea any time of the year!

Have a happy and safe holiday season!

Best,

Kendra
