This year, world vision has provided us with the ability to accept
online donations for the 30 Hour Famine. The money raised through these
donations will go towards helping families and communities in Africa.
To donate, one can just go to my page https://myfamine.worldvision.ca/Fami...e.aspx?id=7184 , click "donate now" and fill out the sheet of information. Thank you very much to anyone that donates.
yeah I'm doing it. it's through a group at my school... A week and a half must have sucked. Last year when I did the famine we only had three relatively small portions of rice and water and that made me feel pretty sucked out of energy.
thank you to srslyfresh if he donates, and I wouldn't focus on the 30 hour famine part, it's just what the organization (world vision) calls it. So if you have heard of it at all, or even took the time to read anything on the site before criticizing, you would understand it is not me or my school trying to raise a point, it is run through a (i'm assuming) world wide organization. So there it really has nothing to do with me or my school other than the fact that we are trying to raise money and awareness.
So if someone is trying to be charitable and raise money for those less fortunate, why should they be criticized?
As I understand it, the point of the 30 hour famine is to raise awareness, raise funds, and experience (for a little bit, anyway) what people who go without food for extended periods of time feel like.
