Food isn't just important for a healthy body, it's also important for a healthy mind! When kids have full stomachs it’s easier to concentrate in school, which can help them reach their full potential, all thanks to you!
Good Morning Famine fighters! Waking up on the last day of 40 Hour Famine is hard, especially if you've just spent the night sleeping on the floor. What have you missed most while doing the 40 Hour Famine?
By giving up dinner for one night, you could help provide food for families in need. Did you know that just $20 could help a family increase their food production for a month?
Talking to friends and family about the 40 Hour Famine is the best way to share your passion and to help others understand why you are taking part. Have you told everyone what you stand for?
When people like you take a stand against hunger, you are showing the world that you believe in change. You believe in a world where we do not accept that millions of people are going hungry. Whether you're giving up something for 40 hours, you donate to someone, or tell people why you care, it all makes a difference. By taking a stand, together we can change the world.
The 40 Hour Famine isn't just about giving food to those who need it most, it's also about helping develop long term solutions to hunger. In fact, just $50 could help a farmer to improve soil and grow better crops. Solutions like this, could even help families and communities break free from poverty, meaning that your donations can make an even bigger impact than you ever thought possible.
Doing the 40 Hour Famine is always more fun with a friend - Tag your squad in the comments and let us know how you're going!
Going without food can be difficult, especially around breakfast time, but by going without food, technology, tv or shoes for 40 hours, you're helping to raise awareness for the millions of people who regularly go without. Stay strong and remember that you're standing for a better future.
Are you participating in the 40 Hour Famine this weekend? If you're giving up food, make sure you're drinking lots of water, keep those barley sugars close and most importantly have fun!
