I'm going without food for 30 hours to raise money so others can eat —
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 cylce 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. So let's keep on chasing.

WHO ARE YOU GIVING YOUR MONEY TO? AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, ARE THEY AWESOME?
World Vision is an awesome Christian humanitarian organization with more than 60 years of experience. Look 'em up at worldvision.org or 30hourfamine.org.
World Vision is trusted by more than a million donors in the U.S. because they are honest, effective, and stretch donations by combining them with grants and product donations to make a huge impact for children and families in need in nearly 100 countries.
This is my third year participating in the 30 Hour Famine, and this is important to me for a multitude of reasons, including:
Its helps to support many third world countries in need, such as Togo, Madagascar, and Afghanistan
World Vision does more than just fight the hunger crisis. The funds are also used for emergency response, crisis recovery, and long-term development.
The 30 Hour Famine teaches improved farming techniques using the funds earned, helps families to grow healthier, funds more abundant crops and livestock, brings clean water where needed, runs malnutrition centers when there’s a food crisis, and distributes emergency food supplies during or after a disaster.
I hope you can help me raise funds for countries in need!
