LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Catholic Online has been working to answer Pope Francis' call to 'Prayer and Action' to end world hunger since December. So far, several thousand packages of food aid have been sent to the Philippines to feed the still-recovering survivors of Typhoon Hiyan/Yolanda.

Now, Catholic Team Global, sponsored by Your Catholic Voice Foundation, and working through Catholic Online, has a special offer for anyone who answers Pope Francis' call to 'Prayer and Action.' Right now, anyone who donates a four pack of Vita-Meal to feed the hungry, will also receive a free Catholic Team Global T-shirt.

There are a lot of benefits to acting now. First, Pope Francis has asked all Catholics to 'Prayer and Action' to end world hunger by 2025. The Catholic Church, is the only institution capable of meeting this goal. In order to accomplish it however, all Catholics must answer the Pope's call. To be clear, the papal directive is just that. It isn't really optional. So when faithful Catholics order Vita-Meal to be shipped to the Philippines and elsewhere where is there is extreme proverty, they can rest assured they are answering Pope Francis' call.

The next benefit is obviously that you are feeding people in need. We have noticed that Vita-Meal is typically fed to the children, who are most in need of the essential nutrition that Vita-Meal provides. So your donation goes directly for the benefit of children.

It also helps that Vita-Meal has a long shelf-life, is easy to transport, and easy to portion and prepare. This makes vita-Meal a perfect solution for areas with degraded infrastructure as a result of disaster, or other situations.

Another benefit comes as a result of your prayer. When you pray, and follow that prayer with action, you do a lot to change yourself. Giving charitably within the context of prayer does a lot of physical good in the world, but it also does a lot of spiritual good for you, and it just plain makes you feel good.

Finally, you get a free T-shirt! Your Catholic Team Global T-shirt (valued at $19.99) comes in any color you like, as long as it is cardinal red. Both men and women's styles are available, and it's a great way to show everyone that you are part of the winning team.

We know much of the country is a bit chilly right now, but spring and summer will arrive before we know it, and when they do you will want to look both comfortable and stylish as you sport your Catholic Team Global colors.

Supplies of these shirts are limited, and the offer is only good for a limited time. More importantly, let us remember that in earning this shirt, you are doing your part to answer Pope Francis' call to feed the world's hungry through 'Prayer and Action.' There isn't a lot of time for hungry people to wait. Hungry kids cannot afford to wait for next month's budget. They have to eat now.

We at Catholic Online and then, prayerfully ask that you take advantage of this offer that will provide tremendous benefit to both you, and the world's hungry.

Go you! And go Catholic Team Global!
