Get Rid Of Internet Explorer 6 And Feed The Hungry

More than 17 million children in the U.S. receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch at their local public schools; as schools close for the summer, these children lose access to those programs. In response, Microsoft and Feeding America are joining forces to fight hunger in the United States through the "Browser for the Better" campaign.

For every completed download of Internet Explorer 8, Microsoft's Browser for the Better campaign (running today through September 30, 2009) will donate the financial equivalent of eight meals to Feeding America's network of 206 local food banks, which supplies food to more than 25 million Americans each year.

"This summer, millions of families throughout the U.S. are living on the brink of hunger. Demand for food is higher than it has been in decades. The Browser for the Better campaign is both raising awareness of hunger and giving people an easy opportunity to help their neighbors at no cost to them. It's a win-win arrangement for Microsoft, Feeding America and people all across the country," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization.

Microsoft will donate 16 meals instead of the usual 8 for every user upgrading from Internet Explorer 6 to Internet Explorer 8. Microsoft is committed to spending up to 1,000,000 dollars in this initiative.

excuse me but the worlds largest economy and a nation who has chosen to invade two country's in the last 10 years should not be asking for charity to feeds it's own citizens!the 'hungry' in your country have it easy, even those that are homeless and addicted to crack its still better than being hungry in a war zone. America has created two war zones so this idea is sick and perverse.'the land of the free' whoever told you that is your enemy!

besides its a waste of money to give this kids free food, most of them can't eat because there parents are drug addict bastards and/or are living off the system, meaning by handing them free food your helping them to be more like there parents and continue to be a drain on society.. if you can't feed your kids, you should ask for free food, you should be forced to give them up and possibly even nutered

I hate to see how stupid people are sometimes, microsoft isnt asking anybody for anything charity or otherwise. the DL is all about raising awareness, it it just a different way off letting ppl know, the more downloads the more people know. and as for you all saying that the only reason the kids go hungry is bcuz their parents are drug addicts no thats bulls**t too. the problem is that nobody has any money anymore, many of you dont realize while drugs may be part of the problem they arent the only thing to blame, honestly you think every1 poor or hungry is on drugs or are that way as a result of drugs and alcohol, you must be really fukn stupid. i do believe though more is needed to fix these problems, and for those foreigners, stfu already, enough with your rants about americans. idiots
