I'm starving, will you help me?

This weekend, I will be participating in the 30 Hour Famine at our church. We will be joining people from around the country and going without food in order to raise money and awareness for children devasted by the earthquake(s) in Haiti this year. I am asking that you would donate $1 for every hour that I will go without food. With that $30, a child is Haiti's needs can be met for an entire month. My personal goal ($360) is to raise enough money cover that child's needs for 12 months, an entire year. Please take the time to watch the video below, it explains in detail why we are doing this project. You can also check out RidgeStudents Famine 08
or RidgeStudents Famine 2009 to see what we do specifically here.
