Around the world many children are dying from a lack of food.  About 90% of child hunger occurs in Africa and Asia.  Each year 15 million children die from hunger, thats about 41,095 people per day.  1 in every 12 people are malnourished.  1 in 4 people live on less than 1$ per day.  Because of these reasons, organizations such as Save The Children, Feed My Starving Children, and End Childhood Hunger are packaging food and sending to countries around the world that need it. This is important to me because these kids are young and they don’t know how to find food for themselves, so we need to help them quickly.

To create this hexagon I used blue paint, markers, colored pencils, and raw noodles.  I made the words “Stop Child Hunger” for the shape of Africa because that is where most hunger occurs.  Surrounding the continent are blue noodles that look like water, but they also symbolize the help and food that is being sent to help these children survive.
