Not only do we want to help out friends and families with meals, but we also want to provide food for those who don't have any. To do this, we have partnered with Feed The Children, a fully-accredited 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, whose goal is to provide food for hungry children and families not only in the US but around the world.
Those who view a friend or family member's online registry will be given the opportunity to make a secure online donation in one of several amounts, depending on how many meals they desire to provide for a child or family in need. In addition, they will be able to choose whether they want their donation to help the needy in America or whether they want the money to go toward Feed The Children's international efforts which have reached out to 118 different countries since the organization's inception in 1979. 100% of the proceeds of all online donations will go directly to Feed the Children's mission of helping another hungry person be fed.
In 2007, over 135 million pounds of food and other essentials were delivered to needy children and families around the globe and the equivalent of 800,000 meals were supplemented on a daily basis through the work of Feed The Children. But there are still millions of hungry, hurting people in our world whose lives will be improved tremendously if they are given what most of us take for granted each and every day: a nice meal. So, while giving those who use MealBaby the chance to decide what food to deliver to a neighbor, friend or family member in need, we also want to allow them the opportunity to provide for someone else in need by partnering with us and Feed The Children.
