Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Olympic Fever and Darfur Children

So this post doesn't really have much to do with Bread for the World.  It's just that I have Olympic fever (I can't tell you how many times I cried about Michelle Kwan) and I thought this story was pretty cool.  Yesterday, Joey Cheeks won the gold for the 500-meter speedskating event.  He promptly decided that the $25,000 he'll get for winning the gold he will donate to his charity, Right to Play, that uses sports to help needy children.  In this case, the $25,000 will go to help children in Darfur.  Pretty cool!  It's always nice to see Olympic athletes that are also interested in world issues and poverty.  If you're interested in reading more of the story, you can read the full Washington Post article.

[And this really has nothing to do with hunger, but are any of you as excited as I am about the women's halfpipe competion yesterday?!!!  It was so cool!!!! :o)]
