DOG FOOD AND WORLD POVERTY

Posted by andreas1965 on June 29, 2006 at 3:33 PM

Yes i know what you are thinking. What dog food has to do with world poverty. Simple. All we have been or go now and then a large supermaket. You may have noticed but along with all the other aisles there is always one dedicated to dog/cat/pets food and various accessories for them.

What i have never seen at a supermarket is an aisle dedicated for the people that having less than a can of dog food is what they and their families eat in a week, if they are lucky that is.

Think about it. Wouldn't you like to see an aisle, okay a small part of an aisle that you can purchase food for the people that are in extreme poverty, for the kids that die every second? while you read this another has just died somewere in the world.

Thay can have a small part with no need to have the actual item but a paper that says what it represents and by taking it to the counter you purchace something for  those kids. Not only food but seeds to help them plant the food of the next year, tools, whatever. Okay we do that and what after you will ask. I am sure that lots of relief organisation would be happy to collect these items, place them in containers and be send to the ones that they need it.

Okay you will argue, that this cannot logisticaly or for whatever reason work. How about add 1 pence/1 cents for each can of pet food and these money to go to UNICEF or some other organisation. Easier, simpler and i hope that the ones that have pets would not mind. If they do mind well i let the people decide what to think about them because if you spend money to buy food for your pet for sure you will not mind for a very small and insignificant amount to go for a good cause.

I am a realist and i donto think that this will ever happen but dum spiro spero as the romans used to say, as long as i live i hope.....

Feel free to send copy of this entry or even the link for this blog to anybody you think it will think about it. Pass it around and lets hope that at some point it may happen.
