Fight Hunger: Walk the World

The UNWFP is soon to have their annual fundraising walk around the world. I'm hoping to attend the walk in Yokohama. Basically people around the world will be walking on the 13th May 2007 to raise awaerness of hunger and also to raise needed funds for the World Food Programme. Being an educator I am most interested in the School Feeding Programme http://www.wfp.org/food_aid/school_feeding/index.asp?section=12&sub_section=3 and also the Food for Women Programme as "7 out of 10 of the world's hungry are women and girls".
You can visit the site by clicking on the banner I've put on the right here or the title of this entry. It would be great if you could give a donation, or join a walk. Nearly a hundred countries participate so check out the interactive map on the site and see if there is one near you.
