Here is a great keyboard weapon for the vision impaired: No Mouse? No keyboard Application Key? Or. What if you need to right-click in a Word document or right-click on a file to "see" it’s properties? The right-click keyboard shortcut is to hold down SHIFT and then press F10. That’s one of my favorite keyboard shortcuts because it comes in VERY handy and sometimes it’s actually easier to use the keyboard than the mouse.
Written from the perspective of my wife, Pam. I have walked for over thirty years. A very worthy organization. Working to eliminate hunger worldwide!
A South American family owns a small plot of land on a mountainside. They grow corn or beans, as their parents did. When a storm blows down the young plants, or the rain fails to come and fill out the pods, families go hungry; hungry children go quiet.
Hunger in the U.S.A. is hidden as well. The U.S.A. Department of Agriculture ranks Ohio third from the bottom in food security, better than only Arkansas and Missouri. Singles “couch-surf” or sleep in their cars because part-time jobs may pay enough for lunch meat but not shelter. Mothers and fathers decide which bill to pay, and what is the cheapest, most-filling food in the store.
The Tiffin CROP Hunger Walk is your opportunity to feed all the world. Watch the Youtube video: Women and Water in Rural Kenya to see the miracle of a sand dam, simple technology that saves lives. On land around the world, our CROP dollars provide the tools and training for varied, sustainable agriculture, “dream farms,” planned for secure, healthy diets. Where populations may have enough of just one food, such as rice, your CROP donations supplement the bowls for pregnant and nursing women, as well as toddlers, to protect crucial brain and body development. Finally, one fourth of our CROP dollars come home to the hungry in Tiffin, to make life possible among the cleaners and clerks who serve you each day.
Our Walk is a hour with kindhearted, new friends on a Sunday afternoon, the first Sunday in October, gathering at 1 PM at First Presbyterian Church. We touch both university campuses, and the scouts feed us cookies. If you can walk, please walk. Shake hands with Bill Brandes, who has walked for over thirty years. If you can give, please give. Register and donate by finding the Tiffin Walk at www.crophungerwalk.org. Or call me at 419-619-6356. We know what hunger looks like and we have it in our power to change the world. The Rev. Pam Easterday is one of the organizers of the Tiffin CROP Hunger Walk.

What does CROP mean? Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty
Where does the money go? CROP Hunger Walks help fight hunger and poverty around the world, including the United States. 25% of what the Tiffin CROP Hunger Walk raises assists local food banks and pantries. In the last 20 years, thousands of CROP walks in the United States and Canada have raised over $264 million to assist those struggling to feed their families.
What difference does it make?
Funds raised in a CROP Hunger Walk assist people in need around the world. For example:
$72 can provide emergency food supplies for a family of five's needs for a month.
$120 can enable three women to attend a literacy class for a year and change their lives forever.
$200 can provide a struggling farm family with a draft animal to significantly increase their food production, as well as a strong back to carry produce to market.
$350 can enable the eldest in a child-headed household of AIDS orphans to receive vocational training so they can support their siblings and themselves.
$1,050 can support community-based health, hygiene, and sanitation training for an entire community.
Hungry people in developing countries typically walk as much as six miles a day to get food, water, and fuel, and to take their goods to market. We walk to be in solidarity with their struggle for existence. We walk because they walk!
