Powerful images of starving children from across the world often leave people wondering, “What can I do?”. Once again, Stones Jewelry is taking the initiative to help.
During the month of April, Stones Jewelry will be donating 100 percent of the proceeds from replacement watch batteries to Feed My Starving Children, a locally based charity which helps put together nutritious meal packs for kids across the world.This is Stones Jewelry 4th year supporting this charity. Last year we raised over $5000 which supplied approximately 25,000 meals to those in need!! With God’s help, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) will strive to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world by helping to instill compassion in people to hear and respond to the cries of those who suffer from hunger.
Replacement batteries average about $5, depending on the style and requirements of your watch. Stones Jewelry will also put a jar out on our store counter for customers to donate. Feed My Starving Children reported that $80 could feed a child for an entire year, so every little bit helps.
Feed My Starving Children has sent food to nearly 70 countries, including Cambodia, Ghana, Sudan and India. They have also worked with victims in U.S. states such as Louisiana and Mississippi after disasters. As a non-profit, they have shipped 600 million meals with just under 100 percent making it to hungry children.
By putting together custom meal packs that include soy, rice, vegetables, vitamins and minerals, the group is able to get children the nutrition they need to survive.
With more than 95 percent of this non-profit’s funding coming from private funding from churches, foundations, corporations and small businesses like Stones Jewelry, we feel it is our responsibility to help them feed children across the world.
