BENEFITING: GRACE COMMUNITY EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH
EVENT DATE: May 08, 2015
Did you know that you can make a difference by giving up ONE day? (Ok 1 day plus 6 hours). Are you willing to “Go without so they don’t have to?” If that’s you, than you are invited to join the Hunger Strike! Hunger Strikes have been used throughout history as a way to draw attention to and alleviate injustice and suffering.
Why are we doing a Hunger Strike? Several youth and leaders are going to fast from 12pm Friday, May 8th until 6pm Saturday, May 9th with the goal of raising $10,000 for a food and water distribution through Love in Motion. This food and water will given out in a small neighborhood of Port-au-Prince to families who are struggling to survive.
How can you get involved?
- Sponsor a youth- A suggested sponsorship would be $1 per hour fasting.
- Buy a t-shirt or water bottle to support our 1 for 1 plan. 1 water bottle = 5 gallon water jug. 1 t-shirt = 1 food bag
- Donate ONE Day’s wage or food allowance to the fast. The average American family uses $30 in groceries every 30 hours.
- Join the strike! Commit to fasting for 30 hours and ask others to sponsor you.
