FIU 30 Hour Famine

Before this day is over, 26,000 children under age 5 will die because of hunger, disease and poverty. 14,000 of them will die from causes linked to malnutrition alone. Today... tomorrow... and the next day... that's one every seven seconds. But here's the good news. Students in our beloved Florida International University are choosing to make a difference. They are getting ready to take part in World Vision (a 4/4 rated Charity by CharityNavigator.com), 30 Hour Famine. They are going to raise money by not eating for 30 hours so that kids eat every day. In the coming weeks you'll hear more about the 30 Hour Famine. So here's where you come in: please pray for the Famine participants, and then prayerfully consider how you can offer your financial support to help save kids lives. We also ask you to join our 30 Hour Famine, by pledging to fast with us, and thus increasing the awareness of this world-wide condition. We have a vision. We believe that the Charity and Love of our fellow students can bond our University in common cause: feeding and loving the poor. We believe that the goals of tending to the impoverished and hungry can be accomplished within our shared collegiate community. We believe that we can overlook our factional divides, and together, we Students of FIU can bring about change in the malnourishment of hungry children worldwide. However, our vision does not include simply one club or fraternity, but the combined union of the University as a whole. We believe this is possible, and we believe it is forth-coming. What Can You Do -Pledge To Fast with us during the 30 Hour Famine. Help us increase awareness and raise funds for starving Children. -Sign Our Online Petition and Pledge to Remain Hungry for Hunger. -Make any small donation. With just $1 feeding a hungry child for one day, EVERYTHING counts! The change you receive at lunch can literally be life-changing! -Increase Awareness By Forwarding This Group on Facebook, And Inviting Your Friends! Forward this group to your Facebook friend�s list, and help us increase pledges, awareness, and donations. -Invite Your Clubs, Congregations, Youth-Groups, and Churches. Increase awareness by including your various organizations - Prayer for Us, and those whom we serve. Facts About Hunger -Every three seconds a child dies because he or she is malnourished or susceptible to disease. -As many as 1 in 5 children die before reaching their fifth birthday. -Every $30 you raise, you feed and care for a hungry child for 30 days. $360 will feed and care for a child for an entire year. I personally thank you for your involvement, and look forward to bringing about this blessing on the foundation of Christian charity, compassion, and the love of our fellow man. May our Panther Pride unit us in this Common Good. Thank You. Please sign this petition, and forward the awarness and righteousness of this cause. God Bless, -- Leonard O Goenaga Director, FIU 30 Hour Famine
