Charity Spotlight - WhyHunger's Hungerthon
In the interest of making people feel better about the affect of their capital on the world, we feature charities that help achieve just that. If you need advice on the best way to structure your giving (with cash, appreciated stock, or through a Donor Advised Fund), we are more than happy to help!
This month's featured charity is WhyHunger, mostly known for their Hungerthon campaign. Hungerthon is an annual Thanksgiving radio tradition, since 1975, that educates listeners across the U.S. and raises critical funds to end hunger in America.
This holiday season, WhyHunger’s 36th Hungerthon brings together radio partners at Audacy New York, SiriusXM and iHeart New York with celebrity supporters including Yoko Ono Lennon and Bruce Springsteen, and fans like you to tackle the root causes of hunger in America and ensure everyone’s human right to nutritious food.
WhyHunger was founded in 1975 by the late musician Harry Chapin and Radio DJ Bill Ayres on the fundamental belief that access to nutritious food is a human right and hunger is a solvable problem in a world of abundance. What began as a simple commitment between two friends to make a difference has grown into a global non-profit, celebrating over 40 years of supporting social movements and grassroots innovations to change the systems, policies and institutions that perpetuate hunger and poverty in our world. WhyHunger has proven that change is possible and that justice can prevail.
