In honor of United Nations World Food Day, 50 Cent is challenging the world to help provide one million meals for hungry children in just one week.
From Monday, October 17 to Sunday, October 23, every time someone “Likes” Jackson’s new Street King energy shots on Facebook he will provide a meal to a child in need. In addition, Jackson will match the donation and provide a million more meals if the Like count reaches 1 million within the week.
“People who want to help fight hunger are not being asked to donate or pay anything to help. It’s real simple. All they have to do is Like the Street King page on Facebook and I will give a meal to a hungry kid,” said Jackson.
Once a user Likes the page, he or she will be encouraged to invite friends to do the same. Jackson and Street King will work with the United Nations World Food Programme to fulfill the meal donation as they continue to fight hunger worldwide. Fans are encouraged to get additional information about the United Nations World Food Programme and World Food Day by visiting wfp.org/dreams or streetking.com/giving-back.
“The Street King movement is rapidly gaining momentum and we are making a difference in the lives of people around the world every day,” added Jackson. “We’ve already given meals to millions of kids and have the power to give two million more in just one week. Each day we get closer to our goal of providing one billion meals over the next five years and helping end world hunger.”
