Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Ice Cream Sundaes and MDGs

I just heard about a cool awareness raising/marketing technique Georgetown University did during an organization fair.  They set up an ice cream sundae stand at the fair.  Students could make an ice cream sundae, but to get a condiment, they first learned about a Millennium Development Goal (MDG).  So to get ice cream students learned about Goal nubmer 1, reducing by half the number of people that live on less than $1 a day and to get hot fudge on your ice cream students had to learn about Goal number 5, etc.  With each goal, students also learned about various Georgetown student organizations they could get involved with pertaining to the goal.  Isn't that fun?!!  What other creative events are your campuses organizing to raise awareness about hunger and market your organizations?

The Baylor girls love this idea! We're definitely going to look into doing this on our campus!

The Baylor Social Justice Girls have it all going on. You all inspire me.

I'll bring the Reeses Pieces and help out! They can be for Goal 8 - one I love to wrap people's minds around. In blogdom and in life/work.
