Holiday wishes can end hunger

A fun way to donate to hungry kids this holiday: Buy a Wish Tag (you get to put your own wish on it!) at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago. They just kicked off with a dinner at their restaurant, Chuck’s: A Kerry Simon Kitchen, to celebrate the theme — Imagine There’s No Hunger.

Kids from Chicago’s Children’s Home and Aid enjoyed Waffle Fry Nachos, Southern BBQ Wings and  the Double Iron Chef Burger. Then, they were each given a Wish Tag to write down a wish and place on the tree in the hotel lobby.

Now you can help, too. From Nov 3rd to Dec 31st, 2014 every Hard Rock Hotel around the world will have a Wish Tree in the lobby. Guests and visitors can purchase a Wish Tag from the Rock Shop®, write out their wish, and place it on the Wish Tree. Proceeds from sales of tags benefit WhyHunger and its sustainable agriculture education and nutritional feeding programs around the world.

At the first of the year, Wish Tags will be collected and shipped to Reykjavik, Iceland for safekeeping, in connection with the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER, an outdoor work of art conceived by Yoko Ono.

Fans worldwide are encouraged to share their IMAGINE experiences by posting messages, photos and videos via the official social media channels for the 2014 IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign:, and hashtag #IMAGINENOHUNGER.
