"Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter"
Hands is a song by Jewel that included in her second album, Spirit (1998). The song is the first single of the album but never released as a single CD, the song is aired in the radio with the radio edit version for radio promo. Without the release of a single CD, this song is it still reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and the video reached #1 on VH1's Top 10 Countdown. I liked the song very much, her soft voice and her emotion in singing the song is haunting.
Just looking up her website this morning and find that she is doing many things including the activism in Helping End Child Hunger. In a post dated March,5, 2012 she wrote: "I'm excited to announce that this year I'm partnering with ConAgra Foods on their Child Hunger Ends Here campaign".
She is participating in the campaign by releasing a song called, “Here’s Hope", a song co-written by industry-leading songwriters Hunter Hayes, Luke Laird and Barry Dean. To participate, consumers can purchase specially marked packages of select ConAgra Foods brands including Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Healthy Choice, Hunt’s, Marie Callender’s, Manwich, Orville Redenbacher’s, Peter Pan and Snack Pack, then visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com to enter the eight-digit code found on specially marked packages. For each code entered, the equivalent of one meal* will be donated to Feeding America. Codes can be redeemed through August 2012.
From her website, she is also supporting a non-profit charity foundation that is working to improve the quality of life for millions of people by helping to provide clean water on a global scale called Project Clean Water.
