Hearts Beating Hunger is a non-profit group hoping to raise funds that will directly fight hunger. Proceeds given to Food Not Bombs-Chicago.

Hearts beating Hunger is a non-profit Chicago based group organized by Veronica Torres and Lindsey Vargas. Our mission is to spread awareness about hunger and homelessness throughout our city. In 2011, there were 93,779 people who experienced being homeless throughout the year and 14,055/per night according to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. When did it become okay to leave HUMAN BEINGS sleeping on the street, under a bridge? While many of us are enjoying fine dining, there are people who struggle for 1 meal for the day.

We are asking for you to please recognize your ability to make a difference in someone else’s life. Appreciate your life and all that you have. Ask yourself “Where would you be?...Who would you be if one day you woke up and had nothing, or no one.  Together we can help give hope to those who are struggling to survive, those who live right around us. Our goal is to reach $200.00 by August 18th. All proceeds will go directly to the Food Not Bombs- Chicago organization to buy food for anyone who is hungry or homeless in August 2012. Please note: Lindsey and I will not benefit financially from this. Lindsey will be listed as the beneficiary as we will be collecting the donations though this site. Pictures of the donation will be up in August :-)

Please be someone who helps make a difference.

Thank you for your support!
