V.D. is back! And I don’t just mean on ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder,” although I’m dying to know the second season premiere date. I’m referring to her continuing to be the ambassador on the ‘Hunger Is’ campaign.
Viola joined the campaign, to stomp out childhood hunger in America, during its roll out last year. Drawing on her personal experiences as a starving child, Davis wanted to put her well-deserved star power to good use, again.
The program raised over $4.6 million last year that went towards children’s access to healthy meals and creating long term solutions for childhood hunger.
Viola Davis said this about her continued support of the campaign:
After an incredibly successful inaugural year with Hunger Is, I am grateful to keep the momentum in finding a solution to a problem that is too often forgotten. We have the opportunity to change so many young lives for the better and I look forward to the day when this is no longer an issue in our country.
There is still time to donate to this worthy and necessary cause online at the Safeway Foundation and in Safeway stores.
