109%

What is 109%? Last year for every dollar given to a Hungry For A Day project, 109% went to the project. How does this happen? Each December, our community gives to fully fund our Operating Costs for the next year. In 2019, we need $19,500 each year to cover the basics. Expenses include administrative costs, credit card processing & IRS […]

Thanksgiving 2018 (It’s finally here!)

Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching, and it’s our biggest undertaking of the year! If you’re like most of our community of generosity, you’re thinking about who you’ll be inviting over for Thanksgiving Day, who will be cooking the turkey and whether you’ll be eating pumpkin or apple pie. Having a hot meal on Thanksgiving is a luxury most of us […]

Meals for Teen Moms

With the back-to-school season in full swing, we are once again working with the Atlanta YoungLives outreach program as they minister to teenage moms. YoungLives pairs teen moms with other women mentors who encourage and support these young moms as they simultaneously navigate two of the most challenging stages of life: the teen years and early motherhood. One of the […]

A Special Need

This month we’re excited to once again be partnering with Don Shire Ministries and the Jehovah Rapha House, a special needs orphanage in Haiti. Last year when we helped the Jehovah Rapha House, they had just found out they were being evicted because the owner didn’t realize they were housing “ugly children”. We are happy to report that God has […]

Harvey Relief

Each of us has been shocked and saddened by the destruction of life and property in Houston the past few days. When Hungry For A Day was started, six years ago, we wanted to answer two questions. 1) How do I give? (if you can’t afford to give, go hungry for a day and give what you’d have spent on food) […]

Back to School!

Can you believe it? Students are already back to school in our hometown of Atlanta. All high school girls have a lot of responsibilities to juggle: school, their first job, peer pressure, social lives and the often overwhelming insecurities that come along with being a teenage girl. But imagine adding motherhood to that mix. And picture that young girl living […]

He ministers in jungles, prisons and orphanages all over our globe. What […]
