Watch these kids shut down a problem that grown-ups have been trying to solve for centuries.

Hunger is a worldwide problem. What if the solution is simple?

Are you ready to be comforted by a sandwich? Well, get ready because I have to tell you some crappy news first.

Around 3.5 million children die from hunger every year.


What?!

I know. I KNOW.

We talked to our fact-check folks, and they said the number checks out, approximately. For example, Bread for the World puts the number of children dead from hunger at 2.6 million, but all the studies put the figure in the MILLIONS.

Most of the deaths from hunger happen because of poor nutrition. Young children don't get the right nutrition during their formative years (ages 0-5), so their immune systems become weak, and they are more susceptible to diseases like measles.

What if there was a simple way to change that mindset? What if I also told you that WE ALL KNOW WHAT TO DO ABOUT THIS and we've been solving hunger since we were kids???

You'd believe me.

You'd believe it when I tell you that these little ones didn't HAVE to share their food in this experiment. But they ALWAYS did.

THERE IS ENOUGH FOOD TO FEED EVERYONE.

Let's believe that it's possible to share it all.

That's where it starts.


:)

Watch the experiment, believe in humans, then share this. You might wind up feeding someone who's hungry.

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.

Recent tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have sparked a lot of conversation and action on the state level over the issue of gun control. But none may be as encouraging as the most recent one, in which 145 CEOs signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to take action at their level.
