My Biggest Dream To Fight And Defeat A Hunger!
"Dreaming about a better future and a better world is just as human as breathing. Everybody wishes the world could be a better, safer, happier place for everyone."
Still, many of us don't know how to start, how to make a change, and how to start turning this honorable dream into a better reality. Take the topic of world hunger: a lot of us want to feed the poor, but there is simply not enough food to go around... or is there? Recent studies demonstrate that there is enough food to solve world hunger, but a lot of it is wasted every day.
According to the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization, roughly 11% of the population goes hungry every day, while 150,000 tons of food are discarded every day... just in the United States. There is enough food to feed all the 7 billion people globally. Still, it is poorly distributed: 95% of world hunger happens in underdeveloped countries. Most people can't get their required 2,000 calories a day. If you want to make a difference, you need to take action and make your dreams come true: for example, by joining a non-profit organization.
Top 5 Non-profits in LA: 1) The American Red Cross - Perhaps the most famous charitable organization, the Red Cross aids the needy through various means: offering support and aid to nations after natural disasters; bringing food and water for the needy; helping immigrants learn the language and find a job... you could donate money, or do some volunteering work, to make a difference.
“If you want to make a difference, you need to take action and make your dreams come true!”
2) Human's Right Watch - This organization does not only operate in New York but worldwide, and they make sure human rights are being respected, especially in those areas involved in wars or political conflicts. 3) Planned Parenthood - Planned Parenthood is one of America's most popular, well-known organizations and advocates for better sexual education to prevent STIs, unwanted pregnancies, and risky sexual behaviors. They are always looking for volunteers to help them educate the youth.
4) Do Something - Do Something might not be very famous yet, but they will make the rounds once they gain some steam. This youth-led organization aims to change the world through little steps: giving away masks and hand sanitizer to the needy, collecting cigarette butts, keeping the streets clean. 5) The American Civil Rights and Liberties Union - This Union aims to protect American citizens' civil rights and liberties and advance other social justice causes to bring forth more equality.
If you want to think big, some of the most famous worldwide non-profits are the Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, Amnesty International, UNICEF, Global Giving, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Find a cause that tugs at your heartstrings and take action!
