Dear Reader,

The global food crisis worsens every day. Food costs are on the rise and women and children are bearing the brunt of this horrible reality, as millions go desperately hungry. It doesn't have to be like this. CARE is doing incredible work to help the most impoverished nations, but they need our help. Make a donation to CARE and let's do our part in turning around the global food crisis now.

Dear Reader,

We are in the midst of a historic global food crisis.

The cost of food is skyrocketing -- up more than 80 percent in some countries for staples like rice and wheat -- and millions of people all around the world are going hungry. The global food crisis poses an epic moral and humanitarian threat. It has pushed an additional 130 million people into poverty and deepened global hunger, with the gravest impact on pregnant women and children.

The global food crisis is a call to conscience. As Americans, we recognize our moral obligation to do what we can to alleviate the suffering of those who have so much less than we do. We want women and families to thrive -- but first we must help them meet the basic necessities of life. Your support will help us do just that by helping hungry families get the food, clean water, and other lifesaving aid they need to survive. Please join us today. Together, we can give hope and help to people all over the world striving for a future free of poverty and suffering.
Help us feed the hungry -- and tackle the underlying causes of poverty so people can become self-sufficient.  Donate Now.

CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty, is already on the ground helping women, men and children in the world's poorest countries. We're providing aid to help families survive right now, and we're working with communities to create lasting solutions to hunger and poverty. We focus on working with poor women because, when equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty for good.

You can do your part by making a gift of $50, $100, $250, or even $1,000. Your tax-deductible contribution to CARE will help save lives and create a healthy future for millions of people striving to overcome chronic hunger and poverty.

Please join us in the fight against hunger and poverty by making a tax-deductible donation right now.

In this ailing economy, the situation is likely to worsen as food prices climb even higher. Your generous gift today can help save lives -- and build a better world for all.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Helene D. Gayle, MD, MPH
President and CEO, CARE
