Jack Johnson makes famine relief donation

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii resident and singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has made a $30,000 donation for famine relief efforts in East Africa.

A combination of failed rains and rising food prices has left more than 10 million people facing a devastating food crisis and in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

Johnson 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.

Jack Johnson is donating $10,000 each to UNICEF, Save the Children, and the World Food Programme.

In honor of UNICEF's Month of Giving, Johnson is encouraging his fans to support famine relief efforts in any way they can. Learn more about how to help: www.unicefusa.org, www.wfp.org, www.savethechildren.org
