Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

The Bread for the World Difference

As I write this, every interest group in Washington is pounding the halls of Congress, trying to weigh in on the fiscal cliff negotiations before Christmas.

And so is Bread for the World. But while other groups are looking out for their own interests, Bread is determined to make a difference in the lives of hungry people.

It's a difference that's worth supporting.

Right now, when you support Bread for the World you can make an even greater impact. A few generous donors will match every dollar you give during these final 11 days of the year—up to $100,000.

Donate now and your gift will be doubled!

Bread for the World isn’t just different because of our mission—we're different because we're effective. On Capitol Hill, Bread is a well-known and respected voice of the faith community, allowing us to bring together people who usually can't agree on anything. Our reputation gives us access to our nation’s leaders—from Speaker Boehner to President Obama—which is essential to winning the fight against hunger.

Please make a generous donation now to support our dedicated work on behalf of hungry and poor people.

Bread's advocacy work has a huge impact in caring for the most vulnerable. If Congress cuts federal nutrition programs, millions of people will suffer. That's one reason your support right now is so important.

Donate today to help us do even more to advocate for the funding of critical programs that fight hunger at home and abroad. Your gift will be matched, dollar for dollar, when you donate by Dec. 31.

Together, we are powerful, compassionate advocates for hungry people — driven by our faith in Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for your partnership. I look forward to your support so that we can do more vital work in the year to come.

May Christ's birth among us bring you hope and joy.

David Beckmann is president of Bread for the World.
