Wow! I can't believe it's already 100 days into 2010 and I've already posted about 100 different ways to give back! Anyways, today I'd like to talk about a different way of showing kindness.
So what does this have to do with poverty? Well World Vision has this thing called the 30 Hour Famine that happens every year from April 23-24. On the site they have different ways for groups to sign up for it (although it's basically just for teenagers), but you don't really have to sign up for it to participate! Hunger is one of those things that I know must be really hard to deal with but have never experienced myself. So hopefully I'm going to try to go for about 24 hours only drinking water. It's definitely not going to be easy, but I honestly believe it'll help me better understand what millions of children, some my age or younger, as well as adults are going through every single day.
