Lauren Bush’s FEED project began in 2006 when the model and activist designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) School Feeding program.
As a WFP Honorary Student Spokesperson, Lauren has visited Asia, Latin America, and Africa where WFP operates.
To date, FEED has been able to raise money to provide over 60 million school meals to children around the world.
FEED has also partnered with UNICEF to provide over 46,000 children with essential nutrients.
Now FEED has designed a special T-shirt to benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which has impacted an estimated 4 million children.
Children are the most vulnerable after a natural disaster, often becoming separated from their families and in urgent need of nourishment.
Purchasing this T-shirt will provide 10 high-energy biscuits for children and families and FEED hope in the Visayas as it rebuilds.
The FEED Philippines T-shirt is available for preorder at $33 and will be ready to ship between November 20-26, 2013.

When my first son was born, I couldn’t sleep properly because I thought that if I slept, he would die.
I woke up several times at night to check if he was breathing.
“Don’t worry,” our housekeeper told me. “He’ll be running around the house in no time.”
I can’t believe that boy I gave birth to is now 12 years old and taller than me!
He grew so fast, he is no longer interested in toys that are not gadgets.
A few months ago I was able to convince him and his brother (10) to give up toys they were no longer using.
We filled up six balikbayan boxes, which ended up in a garage sale.
In the Philippines, so many children don’t get to enjoy toys, that’s why Jollibee launched Maaga ang Pasko over 19 years ago. Watch how someone’s pre-loved toy can make a girl so happy.
Maaga ang Pasko is considered the country’s longest-running toy and book collection drive, with over two million toys collected since it started. It is committed to spreading smiles and Christmas cheer to thousands of Filipinos children all over.
Now, families here or abroad can donate a toy and/or book online through the Maaga ang Pasko microsite with the help of campaign partners Toy Kingdom and Goodwill Bookstore.
Global Filipino communities in the USA, Middle East, Hongkong and Singapore can also reach out via Maaga ang Pasko donation boxes at Jollibee branches in these markets.
Last Tuesday my dad sent a King Air plane to Guiuan (pronounced “gii-wan”), Eastern Samar to check the conditions there.
The 12-seater plane had Nickel Asia’s JB Baylon on board, who brought medicines and supplies to the devastated town.
On the way back they boarded victims to safety in Cebu and Manila, including some injured and the former Mayor of Guiuian, Analiz Kuan.
Following are photos taken by JB Baylon.
