I’ve been a big fan of Canadian Hunger Foundation for almost twenty years. I’ve always loved their work because they do practical nitty-gritty stuff in some of the hardest-to-reach places on earth.
I remember reading a piece once by Tony Breuer, their Executive Director. He talked about taking a hard drive way into the mountains of Viet Nam to visit a village where CHF had a project going on. When he got there, he went and visited some of the families that had been chosen to participate in the program.
Not only had he busted his ass to get there – but I was knocked out that the CHF project had it narrowed down right to the household level. Now, that’s getting specific. That’s one of the reasons CHF gets such incredible bang for the donor’s buck. They really know how to put it where it can do the most good.
CHF has been a kickass organization working on a kickass cause for more than 50 years. They really know their stuff. They don’t show off. They have consistently great people working there. Oh yeah, they’re distinctly Canadian – and these days I’m glad to see Canadians building the world rather than fighting over it.
I’m thrilled to be working with CHF. I’m going to give this my best – and do whatever I can to make them even better than they are now.
