Designate $100 from each tax payer's contributions to fight world hunger.
Currently, like the education tax credit, the U.S. tax payer can voluntarily contribute up to $400 to the "Working Poor" tax credit allowing the tax payer to designate where they want their tax contribution to be spent. This is great but its voluntary and not everyone has the means before tax time to make the contribution. I am proposing to the U.S. government to just designate $100 from current tax contributions (not add it on as an increase) to this $10.3 billion need to fight world hunger. The U.S. could most likely pay this alone and if other countries help in the process so much the better. In the long run we will all be better off. And its the humane thing to do.
