Singer and philanthropist Jack Johnson has reached out to Africa Famine Relief and donated $30,000.

The famine crisis affects Africans daily and Johnson has pledged $10,000 to three organizations: UNICEF, Save the Children and the World Food Programme. Each charity work to raise relief efforts in the Horn of Africa.

The following statement was posted on Johnson’s website, “In the midst of the current drought and famine in East Africa, Jack Johnson announces his support of (sic) hunger relief efforts in the region. Jack is donating a total of $30,000 to three organizations working hard to provide food, water, medicine and on-the-ground support for millions of people in the drought stricken areas.”

Johnson also encourages his fans to reach out and support famine relief efforts. The World Food Programme states it only costs $0.50 to feed a beneficiary in the Horn of Africa for one day.

The post goes on to say, “All donations will make a difference and every day counts until the rains return in around 100 days.”
