Do Kids Really Share?

A social experiment [VIDEO]

Dec 7, 2012

What happens when an adult leaves the room and two children have unequal amounts of food before them? One would guess that fighting and friction would ensue, but in fact, the exact opposite occurred. 20 out of the 20 children who took part in this social experiment happily shared their sandwich with the child who had an empty plate.
This sweet and impactful clip by Acción contra el Hambre [Action Against Hunger] set out to show that there is enough food in the world for everyone, people just need to share. The frightening statistic stands that 3.5 million children die from malnutrition every year, even though there are enough food resources to nourish twice the world's population. So let's take a lesson from these kids and share your sandwich.
