Hello you guys...

So I had a vision the other night that I could end hunger around the world-
Crazy, huh?

Here's my idea: (I'm sure it needs a little, no, a lot of work so e-mail me back if you think of anything that might help this idea along at: )


Hungry kids around the world would line up at webcams at convenient locations.
Anyone around the world could log onto the internet and see a live video from a webcam of a hungry kid waiting- They might even type in their (name age and sex)
for a chance to get a meal live at the webcams. By clicking a button similar to apple's itunes you could buy a kid lunch for $0.99! When you click on the button that says "BUY MEAL", a food stamp would spit out of the vending machine below the web camera for the hungry kid to accept, say thanks, and take to the store.

That's the simple version of my idea. There are obviously 100's of more questions and factors to weigh in but at the same time I think it might not be far off...

Other thoughts:
You need monitors to make sure the kid that is hungry is actually getting the food.
(Maybe a web cam with a larger view could allow the "Meal Buyer" to watch the child get the stamp, walk to the store, and even eat lunch, if the buyer wanted to see his $0.99 actually work.

I was thinking about it and I think a hungry kid is probably the first terrible problem that is actaully solvable! We have 7 billion people in the world and plenty of food to go around. The least we can do is make sure the kids aren't hungry.

Thanks for reading this and stopping by,
