30 Hour Famine hosted by Acts64
Go hungry so others don't have to!
Every day, hunger kills as many as 11,000 kids under age 5. While this number is staggering and it seems impractical to make a tangible difference in the fight against hunger, there is a very real and powerful way to make an impact.
The 30 Hour Famine (part of World Vision) gives you a chance to rise up and serve the hungry by fasting for 30 hours. During The Famine, you will learn what it takes to overcome hunger, discover deeper parts of your relationship with God, and bring the reality of this suffering to your life and the lives of those around you. You will step outside yourself to help save lives and change the way you see the world.
Hunger is something many of us aren't familiar with and may not see or experience it in our daily lives. It's hard to understand the severity of the suffering and it's even harder to believe that you, as one person, can make a noticeable difference when you are so distant from it. Well, it's time you refuse to be told you can't make a difference!
You are personally invited to join acts64/CRAVE/Christ in the City as we participate in the 30 Hour Famine this March! The Famine raises money for the children who suffer from hunger by asking each participant to collect donations or sponsorships for their sacrifice and commitment to the 30 Hour Famine. Ask your family, friends, and co-workers to sponsor you as you do this - either by hour, minute, or a flat rate donation! Every $30 feeds a child for a month. Our goal for our team is that each participant fundraises $100. As a part of the 30 Hour Famine, we have the option of designating our funds to a specific region.
Part of this event will be coupled with a lock-in at CRAVE and a servant event in which we serve food to the church and community. Prepare for some of the most eye-opening and transforming 30 hours of your life!
