KDUV's Steele To Live On $2 Per Day
March 4, 2009 at 3:40 PM (PT)
Today COMMUNITY EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING Christian CHR KDUV/VISALIA-FRESNO, CA PD SHANNON STEELE kicked off a week-long challenge to raise awareness for COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL's GLOBAL FOOD CRISIS DAY on MARCH 11th. As a part of the challenge, STEELE will be living on $2 per day and the kindness of strangers for food. Listeners are asked to get involved in by praying for the GLOBAL FOOD CRISIS DAY and taking action to give.
STEELE says this week is meant to remind us how blessed we are and how easy it is to give. "I've come to terms with how hard I had to work to ONLY spend $14 on food for this next week, while millions around this world have less than that to survive on for a month! And it's amazing to realize that the same $14 I've spent on food for the week can feed one child in a poverty stricken area for a month."
