Pass the Plate Challenge

Since its founding in 1971, Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless Food (HFTH), a Christian international aid organization, distributed more than $3.0 billion in food, clothing, medical, educational, toiletries, furniture and cleaning supplies to 16 Georgia counties, three states and to the Philippines, the Ivory Coast and Uganda. The organization maintains an average administrative overhead of 14 percent -- ensuring the poor receive 86 percent of all donations.

Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless follows the principle that education and self-help must fortify charity work so recipients learn to break the cycle of poverty. HFTH prevents homelessness by providing rent, mortgage, and utility assistance, financial literacy and GED classes, distribution of school supplies and book bags to children, annual Christmas children’s party, intensive case management and support to programs to teach recipients how to develop small businesses and co-ops while providing leadership training to independent farmers.

Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless was founded in 1971 by civil rights icons Rev. Hosea and Juanita T. Williams. Their vision was instrumental in guiding Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless as it became one of the most significant human services organization in the Southeast United States providing services for some 50,000 people per year. In 2000, Afemo and Elisabeth Omilami, who have extensive experience in program development and an in-depth knowledge of meeting the basic needs of families in crisis so those families don’t become homeless especially the  working poor and the homeless, tripled the numbers served and expanded HFTH to a year-round human service organization. Mrs. Omilami assumed the Presidency in 2000 and provides the leadership for Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless during this time of explosive growth.

Created to help destitute people in the United States, Hosea Feed The Hungry has forged a spirit of cooperation between individuals, corporations and churches of the First World and of the Third World. Established as a 501(c)(3) charity, HFTH collects funds and Gifts-in kind year-round. Hosea Feed the Hungry was named one of the top charities in Georgia for its Katrina relief program to over 6,000 hurricane survivors by the Georgia State Senate.

Movember

WHAT is Movember?

Movember is a movement committed to changing the face of men’s health by challenging men to grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

Donate Now

WHEN

Movember started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003. It is now seen around the globe every November 1st – 30th, with campaigns in 21 countries.

WHY

To create conversations about men’s health and to find breakthrough solutions that produce tangible improvements in the lives of those dealing with prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

HOW

Men (also known as Mo Bros) sign up online. Start clean-shaven on November 1st then donate their face for 30 days by growing and grooming the best moustache they can muster, raising funds and awareness along the way.

Women, (also known as Mo Sistas) play a key supporting role by signing up as team captains, recruiting Mo Bros, helping to raise funds, and also encouraging the men in their life to action when it comes to their health.

FUNDS

Funds raised are committed to combatting prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems and have supported over 800 men’s health programs to date.

Specifically:Prostate Cancer - Men living with and beyond prostate cancer have the treatment and care needed to be physically and mentally well.

Testicular Cancer - Men living with and beyond testicular cancer have the treatment and care needed to be physically and mentally well.

Mental Health – Men are mentally healthy and take action to remain so. Those who experience mental health problems take action early and live lives free of stigma and discrimination.

How you can give to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts

The scale of the devastation in the Philippines as a result of Typhoon Haiyan is immense.  The death toll is over 1,700 and rising.  Many predict it to reach over 10,000.Those who have survived have gone days without food or fresh water.  Doctors are desperate for medicine to treat the wounded.Air Force Capt. Antonio Tamayo told the Associated Press:  "It's overwhelming.  We need more medicine. We cannot give anti-tetanus vaccine shots because we have none."The longer survivors go without help, the greater chance of disease.According to the AP:  "a reporter drove through the town for around 7 kilometers (4 miles) on Wednesday, seeing more than 40 bodies. He saw no evidence of any organized delivery of food, water or medical supplies, though piles of aid have begun to arrive at the airport. Some people were lining up to get water from a hose, presumably from the city supply."How can you help?There are many organization which have set up websites for funds for disaster relief.   The American Red Cross will take your donations online.  The link for its website is here.  UNICEF reports an estimated 4 million children were affected by the storm.  You can also give via 'UNICEF Responds' by clicking this link.
