Almost nine months ago, WeCanEndThis.com set out to accomplish two goals – one of which was to raise awareness of hunger in America.
Our plan to raise awareness was simple: we gave people 15 days to make a promise to help end hunger in their community. Every person who promised triggered a “donation” of a digital can to their state. At the end of the Digital Can Drive, the ten states having the most digital cans each received a semi-truckload of food from Tyson Foods.
To create even great awareness during the delivery phase, we worked with each local recipient food bank to tell the story of hunger in their community. If you haven’t already, be sure to read these humbling, encouraging stories. We think these ten stories are one of the best things to come out our efforts. Here they are:
