As Thanksgiving nears, the Hungerthon reminds us to be grateful -and to give back
I had the good pleasure recently to speak with Bill Ayres, the executive director of WhyHunger. (This Bill Ayres is not to be confused with the controversial college professor/1960's anti-war radical.)
Our primary topic was this year's radio Hungerthon, an annual multi-channel event that provides the bulk of the funding for his organization's aid programs. Some of the music world's biggest stars will be on hand in support of the event, including Yoko Ono, Carlos Santana and Bruce Springsteen.
