People always say there’s nothing more effective than word of mouth, and wow – this campaign is proof!
Since yesterday, the Feed The Students of Ferguson campaign has raised over $40,000 to go straight to the St Louis Area Foodbank for distribution, and continues to make the news.
Check out some of the articles involving #FeedTheStudents:
Buzzfeed: “Here Are Ways To Help People In Ferguson Right Now”
WNCN (Raleigh, NC): “Raleigh teacher raises thousands for children in Ferguson, MO”
The Daily Dot: “Online campaign will feed kids who are going hungry during Ferguson protests”
The Christian Science Monitor: “People unite to meet children’s needs, from food to counseling”
All funds are now set to go directly to the St Louis Area Foodbank, who are also handling all ongoing volunteers efforts to distribute the food. If you are in the area, please check their website for information on how to volunteer, and remember to tag posts with #FeedTheStudents or #FeedFerguson and include a link to the campaign!
