Feed Black Children


The development of children heavily influences the future well-being of any society.

The trickle-down effect of racism against African-Americans has affected the mental and physical health of the black community. Because children are still developing, they are especially vulnerable, more so than adults.

Several people are avoiding hitting streets to protest against the unfair treatment of African Americans due to COVID-19, which is understandable. But this reason shouldn’t stop you from standing up for the persecuted and oppressed.

When it comes to beating racism and prejudice against the children, there isn’t just one way to alleviate the issue; there are countless.

From donating to supporting African American entrepreneurs, there are a plethora of ways out there that you can do to help the black community while staying in quarantine.

Without any further ado, let’s delve right into them!


Help Feed Black Children

1. Donate as Much as You Can

Donations are the simplest yet most impactful ways to support a cause. A few dollars may be of little worth to you, but it can make a huge difference for someone in need. You can make donations to campaigns fulfilling essential requirements of the black community and looking after the black children’s developmental and educational needs. Some of the notable campaigns that are specifically working to support the black community include:

  • Black Lives Matter – The campaign was created after the murder of Trayvon Martin and advocates against the violence of the Black community.
  • Unicorn Riot – The campaign aims to protect the journalists who risk their lives and provide live coverage of the protests.

2. Sign Online Petitions

Email petitions have turned out to be highly effective given the increased usage of the internet. They garner attention to a cause and helps make an impact altogether. By providing your name and email address, you can contribute to getting justice for the black community.

  • Online Petition for Ahmaud Arbery – An online petition is created to demand justice for Ahmaud Arbery, a black man who was brutally gunned down while he was jogging. The petition demands strict action to be taken against the culprit.
  • Online Petition for Breonna Taylor – Breonna Taylor was a black woman who was mistakenly killed by the police even though the actual person was already arrested. The petition strives to terminate and charge the policemen for her murder.

3. Try the Open Dialogue Approach

Making efforts physically to alleviate the racism against the black community isn’t enough. We need to realize the delicacy of this issue and its different impacts on us and society. Many of us find controversial topics such as racism and political affairs intimidating and avoid talking about them.

White parents should talk to their children about racism. They should teach their kids to treat their fellow members with respect and kindness regardless of their religion, race, and ethnicity. Children may find it difficult to comprehend these discussions. So, it’s best to go down on their level and then talk about these delicate issues. Books and engaging videos may help over here.

4. Use the Power of social media

Social media have become one of the most influential communication tools in today’s world. A simple post from your social media handle can turn the tables for several innocent African-Americans. Apart from proving your solidarity by posting about the unfair treatment faced by innocent black children, you can post about the African-Americans’ contributions, discoveries, and inventions to inspire black kids and empower them to do the same.

5. Support Black Creators & Businesses

There are myriads of black-owned brands, restaurants, and other businesses in the United States. You can show your support by making purchases from these stores. If you have more money, you can even invest in their businesses. This will help small black-owned businesses who are already suffering due to COVID-19 and motivate them to do better and think of ways to expand their businesses further.

By making these little efforts, you can positively impact society and help shape the country’s future in a constructive, healthy manner.
