30 Hour Famine Results

Some have been wondering how the 30 Hour Famine went this past weekend.  Beyond Expectations would be the best way to describe it.

This was our first famine event as a network of youth ministries.  Together we had 4 churches throughout the Capital Region represented.  There were 42 people involved.  On Saturday afternoon we had a free car wash that was truly free.  We actually had people amazed that we weren’t even asking for donations.  We just wanted to create awareness of the current situation in the world revolving around hunger, health, and debt.  Even as we didn’t ask for donations people gave over $250.00 towards our famine fundraising.

Altogether we raised over $3500.00 for World Vision.  One young man – a 6th grader – who set a lofty goal for himself exceeded his goal.  He personally raised $720.00!  Never think you are too young to make a difference in this world.

Thank you all for your prayers for this event.  Thank you God for showing up and blowing away all of our expectations!
