Fighting Hunger with Memes
My favorite blog posts that I have done have been images. I have noticed that they receive much more recognition from viewers, while at the same time they are very quick to make. Also, in particular, I really enjoy my Gandhi posts.

What is hunger to you? I will tell you, hunger is not only in third world countries — Africa, as some may say. Hunger Hits Home, right there in your community. People have to decide which bill they are not paying in order for them to buy food. But, you can make a difference by spreading the word, donating money, volunteering at a local food bank, raising funds to support those struggling in your community! Become an official ‘Hunger Fighter’ with the Revolution Hunger campaign! We are a group of teens tackling hunger in our communities which is making a global impact — we aspire to decrease the amount of hungry folks!
Here’s an amazing video from our friends at World Savvy. A team of 13 teens asked the question, “what does climate change mean for Bangladesh?” Seven of the high schoolers were from Bangladesh, and six were from the US.
World Savvy is a cool organization that helps teens learn the critical thinking, teamwork and media skills they need to lead in the 21st Century. Check them out!
