Hearts Against Hunger

February 10, 2016 at 1:33 pm Leave a comment


In our most recent issue, we profiled Michael Clark ’03, a 39-year-old senior pharma rep who moonlights as a global philanthropist. His non-profit, which he started in 2013, is called Small Sacrifice, and its name speaks to its mantra: small sacrifices can make a meaningful impact. Clark asks people to give up something specific for one day or week—say, a cup of coffee or a dinner reservation—and put those pennies and dollars to a chosen charity instead. (Fortune named Clark as one of the “Heroes of the Fortune 500” last year.)

The latest Small Sacrifice campaign is “Hearts Against Hunger” and asks people to forgo something this week, whether it’s a small box of chocolates or one dozen roses. Instead, that money will feed hungry children in Lancaster, Pa., where 15 percent of families are living in poverty. Thanks to Clark’s partnership with the Power Packs Project, even just a $10 donation could feed a family of four for a weekend. What’s not to love about making these stomachs—and hearts—full this Valentine’s Day?
