I'm going without food for 30 hours for the third time to raise money so others can eat — nearly 8,000 kids die every day from hunger-related causes.
1 in every 9 people in the world do not have enough to eat.
98% of these people live in developing countries. Some live at the mercy of hunger crises like the one that struck East Africa. Others have been forced from their homes, scraping by with that they can find. Still more find themselves caught in a cycle of poverty and hunger, neither of which they can escape.
But when we come together, there's hope. Hunger has decreased by 20% in the past 25 years, thanks to people like you. It may be retreating to some of the hardest paces, but it's still on the run.
However, there is some good news!
Just $40 will help feed and care for a child for a month!
My goal is to raise at least $1500. All you have to do is click the orange "support me" button above to give your gift!
As my third time doing the famine, I am ready to do it again, but this time, I hope to raise even more money than last year. I am constantly being reminded of every person I can help by doing the famine. Hopefully, that will also incline you to donate money to this cause.
