Could social media solve world hunger? We don’t know, but what Virgin Mobile Australia and OzHarvest are doing is definitely a step in the right direction. Watch the video below to see what we’re on about.
“I’m very proud to be helping launch #mealforameal, a wonderful new initiative from Virgin Mobile Australia’s partnership with OzHarvest. For every food photo you post to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the #mealforameal hashtag, we’ll deliver a real meal to someone in need.” - Sir Richard Branson
We can’t help but let our minds run a little wild, though. If this works in Australia, could it be possible that we could form similar partnerships in our own countries? Maybe it’s something that we could’ve looked at for the 2014 Soccer World Cup in Brazil before it even started? This campaign is so inspirational and has definitely tugged at our heart strings. So much so, in fact, that we’re all participating. Each time we post any food pictures, we’re tagging #mealforameal. It may not be applicable to South Africa as of yet, but if you can feed the hungry by literally taking a few seconds to use the hashtag, why not do it?
Instead of sending you to our Contact Us page, we’d rather send you to the Virgin website where you can learn more about this initiative. Check it out when you click here.
