Plumpy'nut Gets Help from Ella

Hello again, loyal and generous P.B. and Jers! In my last post, I said that thanks to your continued support and a generous match, Plumpy'nut and I have already met two more of our goals. Now, Plumpy'nut is back with the second of two new comics to tell you how much progress we've made so far:

P.B. and Jers, we're so close to our goal! And if you help Plumpy'nut get even closer to saving six more children who need lifesaving treatment, your donation will be matched.

Thanks again for all your support, and we'll see you hopefully very soon with the next installment of Plumpy'nut's journey!

Plumpy'nut Meets Louis Leeky

Wow, P.B. and Jers! Thanks to your incredible support and a generous match, we've already reached two more of our goals! Which means you've saved more kids. . . and you get more comics!

So far, I've shared a lot about how RUTFs work and what they can do, but not very much about who they've helped. Action Against Hunger has lifesaving programs in more than 40 countries around the world, and we reach hundreds of thousands of children each year. Children like Peter in Kenya. And, as it happens, Plumpy'nut meets one of our friends in the cabinet who knows a lot about Kenya! Take a look:

Inspired by Peter's story and want to learn about more children we've helped? Check out our #Team45 progress report from the first three months of our campaign-- and keep an eye out for the next report (coming soon!) because you'll get to see some more stories of children you've helped with your donations!

And of course, stay tuned for our next comic tomorrow.

Thanks again, loyal P.B. and Jers! You're the best.

Plumpy'nut Has More Good News!

Loyal P.B. and Jers, Plumpy'nut and I have some fantastic news for you! Not only are we more than halfway to our goal of saving 20 children from deadly hunger, but now it will be even easier for us to reach that goal. How? A generous donor has agreed to match all funds raised by #Team45 from now until June 30th, up to $10,000!

What does this mean for you? It means your gift will go even further: A $45 donation, enough to save one malnourished child, will now add up to $90 with the match-- enough to save two children. It also means you'll get to see the rest of Plumpy'nut's cartoon journey twice as fast!

I'm so excited about this, and so are Plumpy'nut and our other friends in the cabinet:

So if you haven't had a chance to give yet, now is the perfect time to make a donation that will go further! And please share this awesome news with your friends and family, too.

Feeling inspired? If you start your own campaign now, all funds you raise will be matched, too!

And a huge thank-you to those who have already given-- we wouldn't be this close to our goal already without your support.
