Go Hard Out for the Hungry!!

The 40 hour famine is a special event that people collaborate together and support world hunger. Last night 22 people from Pt England school, supported all these people in East Timor. It is so amazing, how many people are willing to stand up for hunger and poverty in places like East Timor. Did you know that hunger in East Timor is worse then most of Africa?

What is the 40 hour famine?
If you don't know what this is then let me tell you. Well this is a event where people come together and stay hungry for 40 hours and you can only have barley sugar, Just Juice and water.

Why do we do this?
We do this to support world hunger. This is pretty hard, but we do this see how it feels and to experience how people in East Timor live without food. Did you know that 50-70% of people are lucky enough to have at least 1 meal a day. Another reason of why we do this is because we get a chance to give money to people in that country.

I think that by doing this it is very helpful and we can also experience how life is for people in all these countries like East Timor.
