A Special Message from Yoko Ono Lennon:

Dear Friend,

There is a wise, old saying – Peace begins when the hungry are fed. For me, that is so true.

During the Second World War, the children of Tokyo, including me, were evacuated to the countryside to be protected from the bombings which were going on every day and night in the city. We all still continued our studies by going to the school in the countryside. But the city kids, unlike the country children, did not have much food to eat. One day, I didn’t have any food to take with me to school. At lunch time, a sweet country child asked why I didn’t bring my lunch box that day. “I’m not hungry,” I said. I just looked straight over the blue sky shining through the window and didn’t even blink. I was proud.

I will never forget that incident. Today there are nearly 1 billion people in the world who are suffering from lack of food. I understand how they feel – hungry, desperate and humiliated – while still trying to keep their dignity.

“Imagine There’s No Hunger” is the most important campaign for these kids. Like me, they will never forget the pain they have gone through, not having food to eat, while in the neighboring countries, overfed people are trying to lose weight and throwing good food away! Please join me in supporting the „ Imagine There’s No Hunger ” campaign. Don’t wait til tomorrow. Write and send your check today!
