Can you give up just one meal for the nourishment of others?

Can you just give up one meal? This is what I asked students to do sometime in the next two weeks to skip just one meal and donate the cost of that meal to the hungry. This idea was inspired by Andrew Harvey. I am reading his book The Hope " A Guide To Sacred Activism" We do not have it in the bookshop just yet but you can purchase it here on Amazon. About two million people live on less than a dollar a day not to mention all of those that die of starvation or go hungry. It is unnecessary ,we have so much to give even if you are financially in hardship yourself. Can you find it in you to give up just one meal or comfort and share all that you do have with another. Here is a great charity to donate to www.buddhistglobalrelief.org
If you would rather feed the animals donate to Humane Association or your local rescue in need.
Please let me know if you will join me and spread the world lets start a revolution .

May all be Happy and Free of Suffering,Om Shanti.
