BENEFITING: WORLD VISION International
EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2011
HOURS PLEDGED: 960
So everyone has heard of the 40 hour famine to raise money for world hunger, I thought I'd do something that would be a challenge for me. As many of you know I'm not someone who craves chocolate, sweets or food in general but tell me I can't have a beer at the end of the day or wine with tea and I'll be uber cranky. For me this is going to be much more difficult than 40 hours without food..
I've always wanted to do the 40 hour famine but didn't think it was enough of a challenge. Now I'm sure some of you are thinking 40 days without alcohol that's not hard but for me IT IS. As I've said I'm one of 'those' people who have a beer at the end of a hard day, a glass of wine with tea and a thousand rums on the weekend. I'm going to struggle every single day and twice on Sundays (ten fold on Friday afternoons). On the website, World Vision say you should choose something that makes you understand what the people you are raising money for go through on a day to day basis. I totally understand that alcohol probably isn't even an option for them but it's something that I really enjoy so hopefully you'll all dip deep and give some money to a very special cause. I'd love it if you could give a $1 a day because $40 feeds a family of five for a month, obviously if you can give more I'd be uber impressed. I'm also offering taxi services for those of you in Townsville (that I know) and I would hope that at least half (possibly all) of your regular cab fare would go to my project.
