Raise funds to fight hunger

Why Raise Funds

Because every $40 you raise can help feed and care for a child for a month!

The 30 Hour Famine is about saving kids’ lives. Without fundraising, the 30 Hour Famine is just a nice idea. When their families don’t have money for food and other basics, kids don’t eat. Making a difference has never been cheap or easy. It’s always been hard — and satisfying.

Text alerts will tell you when people give, so you can instantly thank them.


Fun incentive for students: When they get their first online donation of $40 or more, we’ll send them this FREE sticker.

“I don’t know why I haven’t done this before . . . My students grew closer together as a group, grew in their understanding of world hunger, had fun even without eating, helped our community, and raised over $2,000 for World Vision. It is awesome to see what teenagers can do when given a cause they are excited about!”
—Shawn Kiger,  youth leader from VA
