30 Hour Famine

My teen just completed the 30 Hour Famine along with 12 others from our church this weekend. They went without any food for 30 hours to help raise awareness and money for hunger crisis around the world. The group decided to designate their funds to go to Haiti. Here is some information from the 30 Hour Famine website.

What is the 30 Hour Famine?

World Vision's 30 Hour Famine is a worldwide movement of students who are serious about serving God and fighting hunger - all on an empty stomach. For 30 hours, participants get a taste of hunger by not eating - something more than a billion people around the world experience every day. And by doing fundraising activities, community service projects, and learning more about the facts on hunger, students are changed in amazing ways as they help others and save lives.

You can read more about 30 Hour Famine at their website. If you'd like to sponsor my son, you can make an online donation directly to World Vision. Please contact me for his direct donation page so he gets credit. This was my son's 7th year participating in the famine. I am very proud of him and the others who completed it!!
