At 6am today I am beginning a famine that will last for the next 30 hours. I will not be eating. And here’s why:
22,000 people die every single day from hunger related causes that were 100% preventable.
Over half of those people are kids under the age of 5.
Globally, over 925 million people are hungry. That’s roughly 3 times the entire population of the United States – going to bed hungry every night.
The poor spend most of their money trying not to starve.
Over 2.6 billion people live on less than $2 a day.
There is enough food in the world to feed everyone. The uneven distribution is sickeningly unjust.
And that is why I’m going for 30 hours without food. To raise awareness and support to help end global hunger.
Here’s where you come in.
Tell your friends! The more people who know about global hunger, the more people fighting to end it. Share hunger facts on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, wherever your social lives may be. Share the facts by clicking HERE.
Support my famine. I’m asking for $1 for every hour I go without food. $1 will feed a child in starvation for an entire day! So by the end of my 30 hour famine – $30- you will have given enough to feed that child for an entire month.
I’m going hungry.. so that others don’t have to.
Join me in ending global hunger, one child at a time.

We can overcome hunger, with love.
God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied. Matthew 5:6 (NLT)
