When I was in high school, members of the National Honour Society had to complete several community based projects aimed at helping families in need in Massachusetts. Each year, I chose to participate in Project Bread's Walk for Hunger in Boston, MA. On the first Sunday in May, a sea of tens of thousands of people congregate on the Boston Commons to participate in the oldest continual pledge walk in the United States. This year, the annual 20-mile walk will be held for the 41st time on May 3, 2009.
Few things tug at my heart strings like the thought of a child starving. As the economy takes a dive, as much as one may think they have it bad, I cannot begin to imagine what life is like for those living without the general necessities of "life".
Fortunately, technology has become far more advanced since my high school days, so people can now donate online by clicking here OR register online for the 2009 Walk for Hunger by clicking here.
