Fight Hunger

Just to let you know, our Second Life walk is creating a buzz in the real life media! Here you find a clip form Associated Press (!), where the only specific walk mentioned is the Second Life walk!

Hundreds of thousands to march in global walk to fight child hunger

ROME_Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take part in a global walk on Sunday in a bid to end child hunger that will span most of the real world _ and even parts of the virtual world, a U.N. food agency said Thursday.
Marking its fifth anniversary, Walk the World will take place over a 24-hour period, starting in New Zealand, with marches covering an average 5 kilometers (3.1 miles), the U.N. World Food Program said in a statement.
Hundreds of marches have been planned across all continents and a virtual walk, along with live music events, will take place in the animated online world called Second Life.
"Every five seconds a child dies of hunger," said John M. Powell, the agency's deputy executive director. "It is an unacceptable reality that calls for all of us to speak out so as not to let indifference smother this tragedy."
Funds raised by the walk will go to WFP's Global School Feeding Program, which provides free school meals to more than 19 million children in developing countries, the Rome-based agency said.
Last year, Walk the World brought out 700,000 people in more than 100 countries to take part in 400 marches.
