The fact that a lot of people do not know that there is a huge sum of individuals in developing and developed countries that suffer from hunger amazes me. If I was to make something go viral, I would make people aware of world hunger. Asia has the largest amount of people suffering from hunger followed by Africa, then Latin America. Regardless of the fact that there has been and still are programmes that help provide for these countries, the problem is still at hand. According to world food programme, it is said that 1 out of every 8 people go hungry everyday. Even if food is being supplied it lacks the right nutrients, which causes malnutrition. Malnutrition causes reduced physical and mental development, stunting of growth, and some diseases in children especially. There are so many causes of hunger which include; Poverty, change in weather and climate, unstable markets, wars, wastage of food, and lack of investment in agriculture.

The purpose would be to create realization of the people starving in these countries, and being able to provide a way or ways of making food available for them. The intended audience is the general public, especially those who are able to provide for this cause. I think it will go viral because, talking about people that are suffering or dying from hunger and living in pitiful conditions will influence them to invest or donate either food or money. I would make it go viral by starting a hashtag on twitter, tumblr, and instagram, by asking celebrities to tweet and post about it which will help make more people conscious of it. Also by interviewing people, especially children in poverty stricken countries and asking them to talk about how they face hunger problems on daily basis and posting their stories on the internet and allowing people to watch it and see what is actually happening will help stimulate pity for people to contribute.
