thehungersite.com

I've added a link to the hunger site to the blog. If you're now wondering what exactly the hunger site is...
What is The Hunger Site?
The Hunger Site is the world's first online activism site. It gives Internet users the daily opportunity to quickly make a difference in the fight to end hunger. In less than 5 seconds, visitors can click on the "Give Free Food" button and, at no cost to them, send food to the hungry in countries like Bosnia, Lebanon, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Honduras, Mozambique, Eritrea and the United States - anywhere there's a need. To date, more than 150 million visitors have clicked to give more than 14,000 metric tons of food (almost 250 million cups of food) to the world's hungry. The staple food is paid for by The Hunger Site sponsors and distributed by America's Second Harvest and Mercy Corps. The site's grassroots popularity has been recognized with prestigious Web awards in the activism category -- the 2000 Cool Site of the Year Award and the People's Voice winner at the 2000 Webby Awards.

Essentially, their daily sponsors give money towards world hunger based on the number of folks who visit the site and click one link. So, by visiting the link daily you can support efforts to alleviate world hunger.
Check it out.
