Effectiveness, efficiency and transparency are the keys - the activities of AAH can be not only easily tracked, followed through the many reports and RESULTS through the online and paper articles and news items (also through their annual report), but photos and videos on youtube make you feel confident about a very high portion of your money going directly towards paying for goods and services for those in the absolute need for them. Instead of supporting several organizations with small amounts, it is more effective to support a carefully-chosen one with donations that make a bigger difference and don't result in wasteful marketing coming from several funds towards you - at an increased cumulative cost and making your money used much less effectively. I chose AAH many years ago and have seen my money spent wisely. As long as they keep up their excellent work, they will be my chosen organization to support.

I became a monthly donor with Action Against Hunger just this year, when I learned that it only take $45 dollars a month to save the life of a child. Their commitment to transparency assured me that they are using my donation in a truly effective manner and that this was an agency that was truly changing the future for children world wide. Thank you Action Against Hunger for giving me the chance to help children!

I donated to Action Against Hunger after learning more about the organization through a personal contact there. What initially impressed me was the passion of the people who work there. They truly are committed to eradicating world hunger and work as a team to make inroads and respond to crises. That combined with the transparency and coast effectiveness of the organization makes supporting Action Against Hunger/ACF USA a no-brainer!

have them generate more publicity. They do amazing work and more press would only help increase their profile and generate more support.

My friend showed me a video about the work that ACF and other organizations are doing to decrease world hunger and make it easier to get food to those who need it most. In this animated video, they talked of families who couldn't get their children to the hospital in time to get the food that they needed and the children perished. This was shown through the use of animation of of a baby in a box that suddenly disappeared. I was so saddened by the disappearing baby boxes and impressed by all the wonderful work ACF has done to create non-perishable food to get to children that I felt impelled to become a monthly donor right then and there. It's the least I can do to help prevent babies in boxes form disappearing.

ACF is dedicated to assisting children and their families with the most basic requirements for health and survival -- clean water and nutritional supplements. In many places across the globe, children benefit from the help that ACF provides. The ACF message is a compelling one, the organization is cost-effective and efficient, and I'm proud to support their efforts.

I think ACF does a great job -- I'm not sure that I'd make any changes at all.

I was motivated to donate to ACF for Valentine's Day. I could have purchased one meal for myself and my husband at an over-priced, noisy, crowded restaurant -- or, instead, I could have purchased enough therapeutic food to help a small child survive, and hopefully thrive, for a full month. What decision would you have made? I think our whole world is essentially a small village, and that if we are blessed with plenty we should remember to be grateful and to share.

I recently became a donor after I had a chance to personally ask all the questions I had about how they are fighting hunger. I was impressed that they dont only hand out food, but also tackle all the causes that lead to emergency treatment. I know that with my donation, I am making an impact and saving lives.

I have been an Action Against Hunger donor for sometime now. I have always felt comfortable donating through AAH. Born and raised in Bangladesh, I know the devastating effect of hunger, malnutrition and abject poverty. I am not a wealthy man, but I try to give to the best of my ability, for I know even a little amount can go a long way to alleviate suffering among an impoverished population.

I believe this organization goes the farthest with the money donated. I would say any nonprofit group is a great choice, I chose Action Against Hunger becuase they cover the most countries in the world. The way I see it is that the more ground we can cover, the closer we come to ending world hunger.

May God bless you!
