Please help feed our global community. May no man, woman or child go hungry! Your gifts, of any size, will make a difference.

Pennies for Partnerships is a grassroots initiative to support organic farmers in India and distribute rice to villages where people live on less than a dollar a day and who experience hunger on a regular basis. The initiative is to help with economic sustainability for farmers, to support environmental awareness, and most importantly to address poverty and hunger.

The project involves the purchase of 25 kg bags of rice (55 pound bags) from organic farmers who are struggling to find distribution. The cost of one 25 kg (55 pound) bag of rice is approximately $14.00 and helps address hunger in a family of four for approximately 1 month.

The way it works: we procure a large amount of rice with gift givers contributions and then we distribute the bags of rice to the actual door steps of those who reside in poor villages where people live on less than $1.00 a day and suffer from hunger. We arrive either in the morning or in the evening to ensure they are home.

The initiative is a 100% volunteer project in an effort to give to the global community while at the same time addressing the UN Millennium Development Goals.

The project is ongoing and will accept beyond the $5000 if generosity of givers permits. Also if you are interested in ways other than by credit card or paypal please e-mail me directly and I will give the options.

Also you can give to the project by sharing the information with others. Thank you for caring.
