FEED JUST ONE - by purchasing socially responsible clothing

Exciting news! As of March 1st we have adopted the food program at a girl's hostel in Hoima, Uganda! There are 30 young girls that live there and attend school. Their diet currently consists of posho - a paste made of maize flour.
We will be upgrading their meals to include fruits, veggies, eggs, and dairy. Every shirt we sell provides 30 meals so every time you buy a shirt it will allow all 30 girls to sit down to a nice balanced meal. If we can sell just 90 shirts a month this will mean 3 decent meals every day and no more posho!
Over the next month you will meet all 30 girls.
Here is a picture of the posho - can't wait to show you the new and improved meals in April!
FEED JUST ONE - join on Facebook and provide one meal.

Photo from the Think Humanity Girls' Hostel in Hoima Uganda. Posho is a pasty-like food made from maize flour and water. The girls need to add fruits, vegetables and other products to their diet. When you purchase a product from Feed Just One, you have provided 30 nutritional meals to our children.

Feed Just One was born out of the desire of one person who wanted desperately to stop world hunger but felt that just one person couldn’t possibly make a difference. That is, until its founder came across a simple yet profound quote from Mother Theresa that said, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” It was at that moment that he decided that even if he couldn’t solve the entire problem he had absolutely no excuse for doing nothing at all. He would “Feed Just One”. And thus the socially responsible clothing organization was started, with the goal of helping others to Feed Just One person – today and every day.
