WALK THE WORLD OKC 2013: Fighting hunger with your feet


"This event has the potential to bring awareness that every day we lose 25,000 people to hunger. More than many of the critical diseases combined. And we can win this battle." - Josette Sheeran (Executive Director WFP)

In 2012, the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) brought food to 75 million people in 75 countries. Every day, the WFP takes the necessary steps towards giving people hope and a future. In 2012, TNT Express  celebrated it's 10 year partnership with the WFPTNT celebrated this partnership by raising awareness and funds to end hunger.  TOGETHER WE CAN TAKE A STEP to end hunger.

Walk the World is the world’s largest annual global fundraising event and was first launched by TNT in 2003.  Walk the World is a global advocacy and fundraising event to end child hunger. Taking place across 24 time zones in 24 hours, the day aims to put a spotlight on the problem of child hunger. Before the 2012 Walk, Walk the World  had mobilized over two million participants and fed over 200,000 children in school.
The aim of Walk the World is threefold:
a. To raise awareness about hunger and WFP's work,
b. To create employee engagement among TNT, Unilver and DSAM, and
c. To raise funds for WFP's school feeding problem.

The TNT walks funds are used to support WFP's School Feeding Programme in Nicaragua, Cambodia, The Gambia, Tanzania and Malawi.  

 WALK THE WORLD OKC 2012  A Grass roots Walk the World Event.  Casady YAC teens have sponsored OKC Walk the World since 2006.  In 2012 because the walk was after school ended, the Casady YAC sponsored a virtual walk.  Proceeds of Walk the World OKC have gone to WFP's School Feeding Programs in Bangladesh or where most needed.  OKC Walk the World Walks have also fundraised for the Regional Food Bank, Food -4-Kids Program.

Generation ON empowers Youth in USA to raise awareness and fight hunger What will you bring to the table?  In a country that wastes 40% of its food, 1 in 5 children are affected by hunger. Some children are given every opportunity to reach beyond the stars and achieve their fullest potential while others suffer--often silently--from empty, aching stomachs. Going to bed and waking up hungry affects a child's education, well-being, happiness, and long-term health. Child hunger in the United States is a complicated, prevalent and hidden problem striking in communities across the nation. Finding a solution requires boundless compassion and creativity--like those of a child.

What Will You Bring to the Table? engages and empowers this country's greatest asset, it's youth, to bring their ideas, skills, friends, and time to the table to make sure each child grows up stronger, healthier, happier, and always reaching higher.

GenerationOn provided mini-grants to support 'What Will You Bring to the Table?' service projects.  Projects will bring youth to the table to conduct service activities that address the issue of child hunger in the United States.
