As I sit here watching this short video, I wonder how we will spend the next couple of days!…We will all rush out and buy more food and fill our tables with every possible treat known to mankind, we will celebrate New Years Eve with family and friends and we will ask for the New Year to bring us even more of everything we desire and we will eat and eat until we are fit to burst!
I wonder how the family in the video will spend their New Year?

So much to think about over these holidays, for example: How much do we waste or take for granted?
So much to think about… thanks for sharing. Do you mind if I reblog this post?
Please re-post 🙂
Very powerful… and moved me to tears, especially the saying of Grace, as the father helped them to give thanks. Let us all do what we can to not only reduce wastage but to donate to worthy organizations doing hard work to help cure poverty and hunger. Thank you for sharing this!
Your reply has just moved me to tears at the thought that I managed to inspire one other person to take action.
Thank you my friend 🙂
This is so moving and sad. My heart breaks for them. I will reblog it soon and share to facebook.
Thank you my friend, every action counts and helps to inspire others to make a change and take action to help families like this one all around the world 🙂
Happy new Year, Mark.

We all really need to think about this more…how much waste could you reuse? How much didn’t you need in the first place?
This broke my heart, just shared the video on twitter and will reblog this if you don’t mind.
Please do 🙂
Thank you my friend for caring and for taking action 🙂

This is so moving. Please take the time to watch through to the end. It’s only a little more than 6 minutes long. Thank you.
Poignant point– especially as we wallow in surplus at this time of year!
great short film / must see
at least something is ‘recycled’ here, while most food industry in the west throw food away at a staggerring rate of 75% of the production approved for sales. There is also the unapproved part, then we still throw away a lot at home. The entire food cycle might throw away as much as 90%. If we could reach an efficient rate of 50% we would be easily able to feed 15billion people with our today’s production.
most people dying of hunger do so in war zones. we are not going to solve their problem by wasting less food.
I agree, food wastage is a huge problem globally and I also agree that many fellow humans die all around the world due to the effects of war….We can make a difference…each and every one of us..by speaking up against war…by pressurizing governments to do something for the under privileged, by giving when we can, by holding out our hands to actually help people in need.
Hunger is not only happening in far off lands raging with war, it’s also happening in our own countries, it’s right in front of our eyes each and every day but we seldom see it, or choose not so see it.
