One child is dying every six minutes from malnutrition and disease brought on by the devastating famine that is sweeping across Eastern Africa at the moment. That’s 240 children needlessly dying of hunger every day.
Now that we’ve got your attention, we want to point you in the direction of the great work being done by Made by Many and Good by Ideas. They’re offering their time and experience to create a digital fundraising initiative in conjunction with Good for Nothing Hack Weekend, scheduled for the 13th.
They’re asking for your ideas on how best you think the public’s attention can be brought to the ongoing crisis in order to create an effective digital fundraising campaign.
You can send your ideas and vote for your favourites by clicking here, while the Twitter hashtag for the campaign is #famineaid .
Alternatively, why not send some money directly to the DEC famine appeal by clicking here.
