Everyone's favorite Youtube sensation, Kid President , is back on the campaign trail and this year he's speaking out about child hunger!
Robby Novak, better known as Kid President, has been making entertaining and motivational speeches on Youtube since 2012. In his latest campaign, the 12 year-old has partnered with ConAgra Foods, one of North America's largest packaged food companies, and hunger relief organization Feeding America, to tackle the issue of child hunger in the US.
Child hunger is a global problem that exists in both developed and developing countries. In the US, 1 in 5 children don't know where their next meal is coming from. The numbers rise to 1 in 4 for Latino children and to a staggering 1 in 3 for African-American children.
Robby has declared 2016 "The Year of the Kid" and wants both kids and adults to take action against child hunger.
"We're campaigning for something awesome…we're campaigning for kids…and we're gonna do this together," said Kid President. "We need your help to end child hunger in the United States, and I've got it on my to-do list!"
Kid President presents easy ways to get involved like volunteering at soup kitchens or donating extra food to food banks, as well as actions people can take online. If you purchase any ConAgra food products, Con Agra will donate a meal through a code you can enter a on ChildHungerendsHere.com .
And they'll also donate the monetary equivalent of a meal to Feeding America for every view and share of the video above this month! (So, seriously, get to watching)
Kid President is right that kids "should focus on being more awesome, and not have to worry about their next meal."
While this year's US presidential campaign has been quite divisive, Kid President's 2016 campaign is a cause everyone can get behind.
