Every 90 seconds an Orphan dies of starvation and preventable malnutrition. For $.25 cents you can save that child.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
XtreMEDIA, the media conglomerate of Actor Stephen Baldwin and Talk Media's Kevin McCullough, announce the global effort "2012 in 2012: To rescue 2012 orphans in the year of 2012."
"When I toured the places these children sleep and live in, I couldn't help but be moved to do something about it. My whole family saw with our own eyes children who were dying or would die soon, simply because they had no food," said actor Stephen Baldwin. "It is imperative to me, my media company, my family, my business partners, and every one I come into contact with to let them know how vital $.25 can be. It can literally feed a meal to a child--who literally--will die without it."
"I've stared into the eyes of Orphans in Eastern Europe, West Africa, and Central America, and though the geography is different, the one thing that never changes is how helpless they are to be able to feed themselves," said Kevin McCullough, Fox News Commentator and Talk Radio Host. "Our partners are delivering life healing food for the rate of feeding an orphan for an entire year, for just $92--this is how simple it is to save a life? How can we get more people involved? How can we rescue more children? These questions haunt me each night..."
Joining the effort is newly minted national talk show host, and alum of ABC Television's "Secret Millionaire" Dani Johnson.
"One of the things my clients and listeners get from me all the time is the absolute necessity that it is to put purpose to our money," said Ms. Johnson. "It is of absolute urgency that we love these kids as best we can. And every single day we will blow cash on the most idiotic things in this world, why can't we take even ten percent of that and feed children who will die unless we do? Two families have already committed to me that they will raise enough to feed 100 orphans each. I honor them and the children they will feed. But there is much, much, more to do."
"2012 in 2012" has also been joined by two major charities whose almost exclusive focus are children without families.
FOOD FOR ORPHANS is a 501c3 feeding ministry headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Gary Van Dyke is the CEO and Founder.
"When we deliver the recipe to the orphans we see a light come on in their eyes. And as we feed them over time, we see them succeeding at life," said Van Dyke. "There is no greater feeling in this life than to hand a child who is hungry a bowl full of rice, chicken, vegetables, beans, and seventeen specific vitamins and nutrients that food scientists told us are extremely deficient in orphans bodies."
KING'S RANSOM FOUNDATION is 501c3 charity based in Kerrville, Texas that extends 100% of its attention and proceeds to those who hurt, who are hungry, who are in desperate need.
“King's Ransom Foundation is eager to join forces with the '2012 in 2012' Campaign aiming to feed 2012 orphans in 2012. And because of this principle that we hold to, we've decided to match every gift given through the website, http://2012in2012.info," said Cindy McFaden of KRF. "We never underestimate the power of One and together we can make a difference and help feed the children. Let's do this!”
XtreMEDIA is also interested in engaging other media partners for the 2012 in 2012 efforts.
"If you are a television, radio, or new media personality who has a passion to help hungry kids, we would love for you to join us in this amazing quest," said McCullough. "We will link arm in arm with anyone and everyone who is moved to do this, to be part of it, and to see orphans fed."
