To Stop Hunger… Is the Goal #WatchHungerStop
When I was sent this #WatchHungerStop Tee from Michael Kors, I kept thinking that with a little effort I could effectively stop world hunger. The shirt empowered me to think outside my box and ponder the act of being hungry. Not like “cabbage soup diet” hungry but actually like no food hungry. Non decisive hunger. Something I’ve luckily never had the misfortune of experiencing. So how could I possibly imagine what it feels like? Because truly feeling this way is motivational when trying to prevent others from feeling this everyday. So what does it feel like?
I can only imagine that if feels something like drowning. Without air… you’ll die. Without food… you’ll die. The concept swept over me like aggressive waves from a turbulent tide and it was in that moment, I realized that I have felt that feeling before. It’s dread. it’s hopelessness. It’s terrible. But it can be stopped… It can be conquered. With our help.
A photo shoot under water was WAY harder than I anticipated. Holding your breath under water is one thing, but trying to work your angles while fighting with chlorine and an obscure sense of gravity is quite another. I finally left the pool after three hours of shooting with red eyes that would make even the most self important Volturi vampire jealous! But with some awesome shots that will get the message across.
I’m here telling you that there are people who need out help and even if you can’t make it into a Michael Kors boutique and donate any denomination to help battle hunger around the globe you can at the very least tweet #WatchHungerStop all day long October 16th and do your part in fighting global hunger.
