How to Help Fight Hunger

If you've been catching the (somewhat hidden) snippets of news coming out of Haiti, you've heard about the dire situation there. Food prices are climbing, as they have around the world, leading to unrest in the streets and many people forced to eat "dirt cookies" - cooked batter made of butter, water, salt and dirt. With 80% of the population living on less than $2 a day, few can afford to feed themselves with anything else.

I saw this on the news last week and instantly wondered - Who is helping Haiti? How can we do more? One of the best things you can do is talk about and tell others. Here are some resources where you can learn more and donate to help. Thanks again for being Fashionably Responsible!
