To broaden the campaign about Elijah’s Promise, I decided to share how you can get involved in volunteering for a soup kitchen in your own community. Similarly to Elijah’s Promise, this article describes how to volunteer at a soup kitchen and reasons why it is important to do so.
This particular article was interesting because the original content was posted on a website about money, which indicates that there may be an underlying subliminal message in the article. However, after reading it, the author did not portray the article as a business opportunity, but instead utilized the platform to talk about statistics and the mathematical aspects of volunteering at a soup kitchen. This is different from other articles because most volunteer related websites are hosted on an organization that is seeking out volunteers, rather than from someone with an outside perspective.
The author, Juliet Kaman, obviously cares about this issue, and seems genuine in her intent. The lessons from this article have taught me how issues like poverty and hunger are usually caused by a domino affect, leaving those with limited resources at a disadvantage.
