Let's Make a Difference Together
No child deserves to grow up hungry. Our children are the future and millions are going hungry throughout our country every day. Summertime tends to be when kids go the hungriest in America with as many as 1 in 7 kids going without the food they need to thrive. However, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic as many as 1 in 4 children in America could face hunger. That is why we have decided to give back and help our community.
We are proud to announce beginning June 1, The Jeweled Lullaby is partnering with the nonprofit organization Share Our Strength and their No Kid Hungry campaign to help get meals to children in need throughout the United States by donating 5 percent of all purchases made through July 30th.
Together with your help, we will be able to provide thousands of meals to hungry children in America. We invite you to learn more information on the widespread issue of childhood hunger and its effects provided by No Kid Hungry below.

Hunger Facts and Coronavirus
(Provided by No Kid Hungry)
For years, the number of hungry children in the United States has been dropping, as the economy improved and No Kid Hungry and others helped schools adopt more effective meals programs.
Now, 1 in 4 children in the United States could face hunger this year because of the coronavirus.
Why? Because millions of children have lost the healthy school meals they depend on. And just as the outbreak has closed schools, it has also closed many businesses, leaving millions of Americans out of work and struggling to afford food for their children. These are families in need, many of them waiting in long lines for food.
No Kid Hungry has a plan make sure children get the food they need, both during this crisis and in its aftermath. Through a combination of emergency grants, strategic assistance, advocacy and awareness, we are equipping communities with the resources they need. Learn more here
