Dearborn, Mich. (ots-PRNewswire) - Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC), a global leader in developing technology solutions for automotive manufacturers, is sponsoring a unique, high-tech effort to help feed hungry children around the world. During the weeks of Nov. 13-19 and Dec. 4-10, The Visteon "See the possibilities(TM)" Fund will be a sponsor of The Hunger Site ( ), an online vehicle for triggering corporate donations to the United Nations World Food Programme, Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest. By visiting the Visteon Web site ( ), "donors" can link to The Hunger Site and "click" to donate one cup of food for the hungry. Donors can visit the site once a day, and each donation will be paid for by Visteon. "We're asking our employees, suppliers, customers -- anyone who would like to help feed the hungry -- to visit our Web site each day next week and donate," said Susan Skerker, senior vice president of Visteon Business Strategy and Corporate Relations. "We believe The Hunger Site is a great way to use technology to help others, and we applaud its innovation." According to The United Nations Hunger Project, about 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes. Three-fourths of the deaths are children under the age of five.
