You may have grown up with her as your pop idol (even through the X-Tina phase we secretly loved most), seen her on the silver screen with Cher, or watched her as a judge on the NBC show The Voice. Now, Christina Aguilera is giving a voice to poverty-
stricken youth in a new public service announcement. She’s been the global volunteer spokesperson for Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief Effort since 2009 and has traveled around the globe on “life-changing” trips to feed children. It’s worth repeating that she’s a volunteer. Aguilera, a mother of two, recently went on a mission to Ecuador. She told PEOPLE, “I want my children, Max and Summer, to always appreciate our good fortune and understand we have a role in helping our fellow citizens around the world with the basic need of food.” Not only is Aguilera doing this work for her generation, but the ones to follow. Here are some astonishing facts about world hunger.
Aguilera hopes to change all this with her work for HungertoHope.com. We all take for granted that we can run to the grocery store down the street for pizza, order our favorite take out, or go to a drive thru. This is not the “There are starving children in China” thing we heard from our mothers growing up, but just a reminder to be grateful.
