Do the Famine
MDG has never delved into the religious arena, but there’s a first for everything, right? Without getting too preachy, International humanitarian organization World Vision hosts a bi-annual event called the 30 Hour Famine. During “the Famine,” Christian youths learn about hunger, raise funds to help the hungry and then go hungry themselves for –- you guessed it -- 30 hours straight. Since 1992 teens in the United States have raised more than $120 million to fight hunger through this initiative. Pretty powerful stuff, whatever your faith.
Fight hunger and injustice everywhere by joining in the famine April 26-27.
