You can visit the website (www.30hourfamine.org) for more information, and sign up for online fundraising at our church's page here. Remember, any amount is helpful; one dollar alone can feed a child for one day.
The fasting will start after lunch on April 26. The actual church event will start at 6:00 PM and will end at 6:30 PM on April 27. Participants will need to bring a signed permission form as well as some juice to share (it's all we'll be consuming for 30 hours, so bring flavors that you'll actually drink). We'll also be sleeping over at church, so bring a sleeping bag and toiletries. Alas, the church has no shower facilities, so no need for bathrobes (unless, of course, bathrobes are a part of your everyday normal attire).
For parents: there will be a potluck to break the fast at 6:30 PM on April 27. If possible, please bring some food to share.
If you can't come to the famine, please pray for the event. Remember, it's not about our own rumbling tummies for 30 hours (though of course pray that nothing unexpectedly horrific happens), but about the 925 million+ people who are going hungry every day.
