As you may have read by now, the organization that we started, The Hunger Strike, was forced to cease the use of the name, branding and online communications to avoid a federal lawsuit. The lawsuit was solely over the use of the organization name and didn’t involve any fraudulent or criminal activity, especially related to the use of funds. All past & future donations have remained secure and will be used for its intended purpose.
We encourage you to read the full statement on www.thehungerstrike.org
At this very early stage of transition, our goal is to still move forward with meal packing events, concerts, mission trips, and advocacy events as scheduled. All of those event details can be found at https://www.facebook.com/willetonline/events

As many of you know, 2013 will start our 8th year as a touring band! This past year, we had the opportunity to record and release The Love on the outside E.P. (Produced by Aaron Gillespie) on a pay-what-you-can basis (digitally & at all shows), making it available to over 10,000 people! What you may not know is that as a band, we started a non-profit organization called The Hunger Strike as an effort to mobilize missionaries, advocates and 1 Million Nutritious Meals for hungry children as a Gospel-Centered response to physical and spiritual poverty worldwide. Here is a glimpse at what God did in 2012 through the ministry of Willet/The Hunger Strike:
2. Bring Love To Me – Tiffany Thornton
3. Love On The Outside – Willet
4. Silently Going Under – Caitlin Evanson
5. Eyes – Stu Garrard (Delirious)
6. Hello, God – Cheri Keaggy
7. Broken But Beautiful – Jessica Mack
8. Swept-Away – Geoff Moore
9. Because Of You – Steve Dean
10. Family Reunion – Sean Michel
11. Worth Living – Sonny Sandavol (P.O.D.)
12. Everything I Ever Wanted – The Roys
13. Hold On Me – Hannah Watson
14. Life Is Good – Phil Keaggy
15. A Chance At Life (Acoustic) – Jason Truby, featuring A.C.A. & H.O.P.E. Students
It is with great joy that we write you today. As many of you know, over the past 60 days, we have been promoting a “kickstarter campaign” to raise $25,000 for a full-length Willet album. With only 6 days left, and over $17,000 to raise, things were looking a bit dim.
We are writing you today to let you know that we have “cancelled” the kickstarter campaign because….THE ALBUM HAS BEEN FULLY FUNDED BY PRIVATE DONORS!
We have been on the road with Family Force 5 & Disciple over the past month, and during this tour, we’ve had the opportunity to sit down with some great friends and share our vision for the band, and for our full-length record. Through these conversations, the Lord led a few families to commit to funding our new album privately! Wow!!
We have cancelled the Kickstarter campaign because the donors prefer to donate directly to the band rather then through Kickstarter (because Kickstarter takes a %). We recognize that 40+ people had made pledges in hopes to receive some incentives, and we want to let you know that you will not be forgotten. People that made pledges on Kickstarter will receive a message requesting an address where we can send you a thank-you gift. Because the Kickstarter is being cancelled, your credit card WILL NOT be charged.
We plan to hit the studio with producer, Aaron Gillespie, in 2013 to record the full-length album.
Thank you to everyone who made pledges, prayed, and a special thank-you to the families that are privately funding this album. We are so grateful for you, and give God the glory for your generosity.
Jeremy, Justin & Jordan Willet
