30 Hour Famine.

29,000 children die every day from hunger.

852 million people around the world don't have enough to eat.
On February 23rd and 24th, we are joining together to do something about it.

This February, teens nationwide are participating in the 30 Hour Famine, forsaking food for 30 hours to get a taste of what the world's poorest children and families face everyday. Prior to the event weekend, teens raise funds by explaining that $30 – just $1 a day – can feed and care for a child for 30 days. This is the 16th Famine. The first 15 raised more than $80 million, representing hundreds of thousands of children who are alive today because of teens who went hungry and the people who sponsored them.

Would you consider sponsoring me or one of the teenagers in the Providence group as we fast together on the 23rd and 24th? If so, just leave me a comment or a message and I will get back to you with more information on how to donate.
