1 in 6 people people are struggling with hunger in America. To help spread awareness, Feeding America teamed up with the Ad Council and 360i to create a movement, and asked people to take spoon-selfies using the hashtag #Spoontember to get people more engaged as well as have a more personal connection to the issue.

Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger-relief organization, has partnered with the Ad Council to launch new PSAs designed to raise awareness about children & families who are in need of help in America. The PSAs call for Americans to help people facing hunger by supporting the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks. Together we can solve hunger. Together we’re Feeding America.

91% of Americans believe it's important to be prepared for emergencies. However, only 58% of households report having taken any steps at all to prepare. In order to encourage more Americans to prepare themselves, their families and their communities, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has sponsored public service advertisements (PSAs) that educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to all kinds of emergencies.
Launched in February 2003, the Ready Campaign asks individuals to do three key things to prepare for the unexpected: 1) get an emergency supply kit, 2) make a family emergency plan, and 3) be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses.
At the website www.ready.gov, Americans can find national and local preparedness information, and tools needed to prepare for and respond to potential emergencies.
http://www.strokeassociation.org Stroke is the No. 4 killer in this country and the leading cause of long-term disability. Although 4 out of 5 American families will be touched by stroke, more than a third of Americans cannot identify a single warning sign for stroke.
The mission of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. F.A.S.T. is an easy-to-remember tool for learning and recognizing the warning signs of a stroke. F.A.S.T. stands for Face (face drooping), Arm (arm weakness), Speech (speech difficulty), and Time (time to call 911). Educating bystanders about the signs of stroke and urging them to call 911 immediately at the onset of symptoms may improve the chances of getting better, but only if you get help right away.
