The Famine is about saving kids’ lives. So without fundraising, the Famine is just a nice idea. When their families don’t have money for food and other basics, kids don’t eat. Making a difference has never been cheap or easy. It’s always been hard — and satisfying. Is this safe? The average person can do it, no problem.

Most people can go without food for 30 hours without any side effects. Exceptions include, but are not limited to:

• Children younger than 12 and the elderly
• Pregnant or nursing women
• People with specific medical conditions or eating disorders

If students or parents have any concerns, have them check with a doctor before participating. Dedicating your time The famine will be held on April 12th-13th, 2013 at
Hartwood Presbyterian Church.

By signing up you are agreeing to not eat for the 30 hours, participate in the activities held at the church, and raise funds for the cause. What is it? Making a difference on a global scale by raising funds and choosing not to eat for 30 hours to feel what those who are less fortunate feel everyday. This is also a way to make a religious connection.

The non-profit Christian humanitarian organization, World Vision, uses the funds raised to help those in need.
