Famine relief

It is back-to-school shopping time here in the northern hemisphere, and as I started pulling out fall vintage items, I realized just how unfair a world it can be. There are far too many hungry people even in a wealthy country like the US, but the photos and statistics from the famine in Somalia—especially its effect on children—are gut wrenching. Every child should have enough to eat. Every child should be able to go to school.

Right now, a portion of the proceeds from my eBay sales are going to help WFP USA.

The World Food Program USA (wfpusa.org) builds support in the United States for the World Food Program and other hunger relief operations. WFP has launched a major emergency operation to save lives in the drought-stricken Horn of Africa.

Please visit the denisebrain eBay shop to see what's listed right now, and find some great vintage items while helping famine relief. Or donate directly at The World Food Program USA website.

A few choices:
