GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110, USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. WhyHunger | For The Country Record

The Highway, Trace Adkins, Kenny Chesney & Bruce Springsteen Need Your Help: Hungerthon 2015

Would you like “take the wheel” and be a guest DJ on The Highway and play anything you want? Or maybe you’d like to fly away for a meet & greet with Kenny Chesney on his 2016 “Spread The Love” tour at a stadium of your choice? And then there’s the chance to spin records while co-hosting an episode of Y2 Kountry’s “Throwback” with Trace Adkins.

Each of these can be yours if you’re the highest bidder on Charity Buzz for this year’s Hungerthon benefitting WhyHunger. Hungerthon has become an annual tradition in November since its inception in 1975 involving radio stations, media partners, celebrities and social media to call attention to everyone’s right to healthy food.

This month most of us will begin the holiday season by gathering for meals with friends and family as we celebrate Thanksgiving. Against the backdrop of this season of giving, the issue of hunger is getting increased attention which Feeding America estimates affects 1 in 6 Americans and over 49 million people are “food insecure.”

Bruce Springsteen, The Cadence of Summer, The Origins of Movements & The Sounds of Lives Changed

WhyHunger Co-Founder Bill Ayres Holds The 40th Anniversary Born to Run Poster

Summer has a certain cadence. There’s a rhythm of long days, the beach beckons and the pace of office life creates the illusion that time is slowing. There’s also that moment when you step outside and smell the air and your body reminds you that fall is looming.

It’s also the time when Bruce Springsteen starts showing up in the clubs of his native Jersey shore. Such a ritual happened Saturday night at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park when he joined longtime friend Joe Grushecky for a two-hour set. In the age of Facebook, news travels as it happens and there was no shortage of user generated content, forcing all of the major news outlets to report for several days on what had already happened. By the time everyone went back to work, Barry Paripsky in the Facebook group Calling All Bruce Springsteen Fans was at a loss for words how his video of “Darkness On The Edge of Town” had gone viral and been played over 100,000 times.

Jen Chapin On A Life’s Calling & WhyHunger At 40 – Interview

Jen Chapin

Sometime tonight at the WhyHunger Chapin Awards Gala at Chelsea Piers in New York, Jen Chapin will remember three words she heard her father Harry Chapin once say. It was the idea of the “obscenity of hunger” that pretty much shaped her identity by the time she got to high school and might have been earlier. Now looking back on the forty years of the organization he co-founded, she can say she pretty much grew up in WhyHunger. It’s also where she has spent the better half of her life on its board trying to understand the root causes of hunger and poverty – and speaking out about its fundamental injustice.
