In November 2007 World Food Program, the United Nations organization whose mission is to alleviate hungeer and poverty, asked students, people, and videomakers to realize a video.

The goal was to create a viral video that gets the people thinking about hunger.

Now, there is the final selection and everyone can partecipate by choosing his favourite video from a ‘top 5’ list, selected by a jury. If you’d like to partecipate or just to watch the video, the link is http://www.youtube.com/hungerbytes

This is a really good example of how a social media can help to support a worldwide campaign against hunger.

As the WFP said … “The race is on: spread the word!” and vote for your favourite video!
