First, the bad news.
25,000 kids under age 5 will die today… most of them because of hunger, poverty, and disease.
13,000 of those kids will die just from causes related to hunger. That’s one child every seven seconds.
But here’s the good news.
It doesn’t have to be this way. World hunger is totally, absolutely, one hundred percent preventable. You and your (temporarily) empty stomach can do something about it. That’s right. You’re the answer that millions of hungry people are waithing for.
Saturday, April 24th & Sunday, April 25th Sidekicks will be participating in a world-wide fundraising effort to end hunger for World Vision called “30 Hour Famine”
How Famine Works.
30 Hour Famine is simple. You commit to going 30 hours without food…raise money…hang out with friends…and help save lives. The best part? It totally works.
How? Every $30 you raise can help feed and care for a child for a month. Let’s put it this way. If you get just 12 people to give you $30 each, you can help feed and care for a child for a whole year!
This event is geared most towards our students 5th grade and above, however all students are welcome to participate and contribute and raise funds. Please see Mr. Cabrera for more information and to pick up your donations envelope.
We will be doing a special presentation in class about the 30HR Famine at the Academic All-Star Challenge Ceremony and in class the following week.
