Global Village Champions Foundation and Yank Barry Donate to the Famine in Africa

Member Contributions directly aid some of the world's most devastating natural disasters.  From the horrendous earthquake in Haiti in January 2010 to the most recent drought in the Horn of Africa and many disasters in between.

Yank Barry, founder and Chairman of Global Village Champions believes in complete transparency and documents all food deliveries with bills of lading to ensure that the Vita Pro food  goes directly to the humanitarian agencies that we partner with and ultimately to the people in need.  We have developed trusting strategic NGO partners around the Globe and in times of crisis we make substantial donations to these organizations in order to be first responders with food, water and medical supplies.

Global Village Champions Foundation and Yank Barry have just made a substantial financial donation  to agencies that are directly working on the ground in the Horn of Africa:  The International Red Cross, The International Medical Core and The Humanitarian Coalition which includes Care Canada, Oxfam Canada and Save the Children Canada.

Global Village Champions Foundation is looking to increase it's Global Members and we launched our Summer Membership Drive We chose to offer a membership drive as opposed to a straight-up contest or a raffle because we recognize that true givers like to belong. There are many people who have given 5 or 10 dollars to the Red Cross or the Salvation Army and almost immediately say out loud, "I wish I could do more."

Money raised will go directly to feeding children around the globe, whether it be an orphanage in Haiti that we have adopted, the children in a cancer hospice in the Philipinnes or responding with immediate aid in a natural disaster.  The Foundation has kept very strict records and to date we have fed of 500 million people around the globe.  With your help we will reach our goal of 1 Billion people fed by December 31st, 2013.

The pins represent countries where Yank Barry and Global Village Champions Foundation have provided enough food for every person in the country to have #ADayWithoutHunger 

Our current membership drive has a very specific focus, boxing. There are many reasons for this and one of them is that a number of World Champion boxers are Global Village Champions. They care about Yank Barry's  determined effort to create A Day Without Hunger. The fan base for boxing is World Wide. Now let's face it, not everyone loves the sport. We knew that going in. The thing is, the new members don't have to love boxing in order to catch the vision of delivering meals to people in need. Even if the new member who wins a trip to Las Vegas with us do not  love boxing, they can still take a fabulous trip, for FREE, and meet the team from around the World. Global Village Champions is a registered charity but we do not solicit donations from anyone including the members.

Please consider joining our Membership Summer Campaign and The Greatest Fight, the Fight Against Hunger
