Fwd: This Thanksgiving, One Easy Thing You Can Do
Skip a Meal for Oxfam
November 1, 2005
In a year in which emergencies have exposed unchecked poverty around the world and in our own backyard, never has Oxfams workto address the root causes of povertybeen more important.
Please join us in a special event to support Oxfams efforts to address the oppressive poverty that makes every day an emergency for far too many.
On November 17th, the Thursday before Thanksgiving, skip a meal to remember the more than 850 million people who are hungry. Then, contribute the money saved to Oxfam. Click here to tell Oxfam you will skip a meal, and then click here to make your donation.
Skip a Meal for Oxfam is part of Oxfam Americas Fast for a World Harvest campaign. For more than 30 years, Oxfam supporters have made the Fast part of their Thanksgiving tradition, celebrating our season of plenty by remembering those in need.
Please join us in this simple act. If youd like to do even more, tell a friend. Click here for more ways to participate in the Fast, including the extremely popular Oxfam America Hunger Banquet.
Most importantly, mark your calendar.
Skip a Meal for Oxfam on Thursday, November 17th.
And give thanksas we will here at Oxfamfor the millions of lives that have been saved this year by the profound generosity of so many who care. And for the very real chance we all have to end poverty.
