Sadly this isn’t the case for some children who have to endure hunger, loneliness, violence and exploitation during the holidays as they fend for themselves on the streets. The Summer Give provides opportunities for thousands of children to return to school with happy memories instead of relief that the summer is over.”Is there a Winter Give?Yes, it is called the Big Give Christmas Challenge, and has run since 2008, since when it has raised over £90 million for thousands of charity projects. It doesn’t have the same focus on London and children’s charities.How does the Summer Give work?Each charity has its own matching pot consisting of contributions from a charity’s own major supporters (Pledge funds) and The Childhood Trust (Champion funds).Together, these match funds are used to double donations made to the charity via thebiggive.org.uk during the week of the campaign.A charity’s Pledge funds will be used to double donations initially and when these have been exhausted, donations will be doubled by the Champion funds from The Childhood Trust.Who should apply?The Big Give and The Childhood Trust aims to support Summer holiday projects for children who live in poverty in London.It is therefore inviting charities which provide such services to apply to benefit from this year’s campaign. This year The Childhood Trust has “more match funds available than ever” so all charities supporting disadvantaged children in London this summer are encouraged to apply.Charities will need to have an annual income of over £25,000 and at least one set of filed accounts.Find out more about The Summer Give from The Big Give.

New York — Farmworkers and their allies completed a five-day “Freedom Fast” organized by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, on March 15 at the United Nations’ Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. This followed a march of hundreds of protesters in a five-block-long “Time’s Up Wendy’s March.” The demonstration began at the U.N. building and passed by the New York offices of Wendy’s board chairperson and largest shareholder Nelson Peltz.Demonstrators chanted “Boycott Wendy’s!” and “Down, down exploitation! Up, up fair food nation!” Supporters came from as far away as Tennessee, Texas and California to show solidarity with the farmworkers.For five days, the hunger strikers and their supporters camped and rallied outside billionaire Peltz’s Park Avenue hedge fund offices of Trian Partners. A prominent colorful banner read, “We fast because Nelson Peltz won’t use his power to end sexual violence against farmworker women.” Some 103,000 petition signatures were gathered supporting the fast and Wendy’s boycott. Although Peltz’s office accepted only a fraction of the petitions, fasters celebrated, saying this showed the farmworkers’ strength and the company’s weakness.Those fasting and their allies demanded that Wendy’s join the Fair Food Program, set up by the CIW in 2011 in Florida. This established groundbreaking worker protections, including more humane working conditions and fairer wages. Significantly, it includes a no-tolerance policy on sexual harassment and abuse faced by tens of thousands of women immigrants in the tomato fields.Unlike McDonald’s, Burger King and other fast food giants, Wendy’s owners and top officials refuse to join the program. Protesters denounced ongoing wage theft, child labor and other human rights abuses and sexual violence faced by workers in Mexico’s produce industry. Wendy’s currently buys its tomatoes there to avoid having to join the Fair Food Program, recognize workers’ rights and stop abuse of women in the fields.The Coalition of Immokalee Workers website provides background on this important struggle and its Fair Food Program, as well as daily coverage of the Freedom Fast.Kathy Durkin contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Home Indiana Agriculture News House Expects Farm Bill Vote on Friday Facebook Twitter Previous articleNAFTA 2.0 Likely Not Done This YearNext articlePurdue Dean Plaut Excited to Work on Initiatives Like Digital Agriculture Hoosier Ag Today SHARE The House of Representatives continues its debate on the 2018 Farm Bill through Thursday evening, with the final vote on passage coming up on Friday. The Hagstrom Report says House Republican leadership and House Ag Chair Michael Conaway are still trying to round up enough Republican votes to guarantee passage. No Democrats will vote for the bill because of changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Several moderate Republicans oppose the bill for the same reason. Hardline conservative House members says the SNAP changes aren’t strict enough and the bill is too generous to farmers, especially the larger farmers.House members first began to debate the bill on Wednesday and approved several non-controversial amendments by voice vote. The Hagstrom Report says the most controversial amendment that’ll be discussed makes changes to the national sugar program. The House Rules Committee didn’t agree to allow consideration of some of the more controversial amendments, including forbidding SNAP usage to buy sweetened beverages, as well as removing the classification of hemp as marijuana. One amendment was approved for debate that would affect crop insurance by phasing out all subsidies over time. The Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau sent a letter on Wednesday asking Congress to do no harm to crop insurance.
