TNT - "Walk the World" in support of combating hunger!

On June 7th from 10.00 am to 12.00 pm for the 7th consecutive year TNT employees, their families, friends and partners will join the initiative "Walk the World" which will be held in over 70 countries. People all around the globe will be walking to raise awareness of the problem of starving children in some parts of the world. The aim of the event is also to express commitment to the efforts of the United Nations and to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of fighting hunger worldwide.

 

All collected funds will go in support to the WFPs school feeding programme. Few people know that feeding 1 starving child costs 0,19 USD per day. Thus even a small contribution can make a big change!

 

You can learn more about the project at: http://www.movingtheworld.org/

 

TNT extends an invitation to all who wish to join the initiative. This year's route for the walk in Sofia, Bulgaria will be: Bistritsa - Zheleznitsa, a distance of 6 kilometers and a walk lasting about 2-2,5 hours. The official start of the event is 10.00 o'clock, June 7th, and TNT will provide transportation for all who would like to participate in the walk.

 

Before the event, everyone can buy promotional items - t-shirts, hats, bags, etc., and all collected funds will be sent to the WFP and will help feed children suffering from hunger in the Third World countries.

 

For more information, to confirm participation or to purchase the promotion items, please contact Kamellia Ignatova  (kamelia.ignatova @ tnt.com) or Ivana Skakalova (ivana.skakalova @ tnt.com).
