Fundraising Honor Roll
Mr. William Lamkin
I can't wait to do the 30 Hour Famine! During the Famine, I will actually NOT EAT for 30 hours. YES! You read that right. I know it will be hard, but I want to do my part to help the nearly 8,000 children under age 5 die every day because of hunger-related causes?that?s one child every 10 seconds. This is NOT okay and I can NOT stand by while children die from lack of food.
In the time leading up to and during our 30 hours of fasting, I am going to get a crash course in global hunger and come face to face with the realities of poverty and injustice. My youth group will make a global impact by learning about world hunger and raising money for hungry children around the world through World Vision; a local impact through service projects and raising awareness during our 30 hours; and an individual impact when I will get a small taste of what it is like for hungry kids around the world.
The Famine is our chance to make a difference, our chance to make hunger part of our history not our present, and our chance actually do something about hunger. My youth group has set a goal, but I?ve personally set a goal too. Check out my thermometer to see my goal. Every $30 I raise will help feed and care for a child for a month! Will you help me meet my goal?
