Welcome to the World Hunger and Poverty Blog!

This site was created by Scott Hughes (me!) and is based on the idea that it is totally unacceptable that any person go hungry or be deprived basic necessities, especially when there is more than enough food to feed everyone and more than enough resources to provide clothes, clean water, shelter, education and healthcare to everyone.

I want this blog to act not only as a call to action but as a place to share information and openly exchange ideas about these incredibly important issues. This isn't about calling for charity for the few. The fundamental problems leading to children starving actually effect all of us. We are #InItTogether.

I know it's a touch topic to face. But please please please read the posts on this site and share your own thoughts as comments and guest posts. Your comments on the posts give me the motivation to keep going with this project. I cannot do it if I think I'm pouring my heart out to an empty room. So thank you in advance for supporting me by reading and commenting on the posts!

Immediately below on this page you will find the most recent blog posts. However, if this is your first time here, I suggest you check our Favorite Posts.

Charity Nominations Needed

21 January 2016

I had what I think is a good idea this morning. I’m going to collect some nominations for good charities, and then let all the people who have said they will buy my book vote for their favorite charity. Then I will donate to that charity. I’m thinking $1 per book sold on release day. […]

Dreams and Goals

30 December 2015

Dreams are things like ending world hunger or releasing the millions of poor, sane, nonviolent people in prison or camps throughout the world. What’s your dream? Goals are steps on the staircase to dreams. One big goal I have right now is to get my new book to #1 on Amazon. As of this writing, […]

Poverty, homelessness, and starvation are rampant in the world. This is nothing new and should never be taken lightly. Roughly, 795 million people in the world are chronically malnourished.
