A bit of time, a bit of money. A live saved.

What's the longest you've gone for without food? Skipped lunch? Or maybe you fasted for 12 hours!
It might seem like a great sacrifice, whatever your reasons, but around the world, in every country, there are millions of people (men, women, children, babies) dying daily from starvation. And by that I mean not from the lack of a meal, but from the lack of every meal. They not only have no food, but they have no soil to grow food and no money to buy food. They lack the energy, due to hunger, to study to get a job; they lack the energy to lend a hand to earn money for food. They have no means of fixing their lifestyles and the repetitive cycle continues.

In Rwanda, the country World Vision are focusing on this year, 43 percent of children under five are malnourished. The life expectancy is 63 years of age.

It's come to that time of year again where we all put together, (both time, effort and money) to make a difference. 
A $40 donation can feed a family of 6 for an entire month. If we all pitch in, even $5 can save a life.

Please help me reach my goal of $500 this year by donating whatever sum you can spare as I give up food for 40 hours. This coming Friday night, through to Sunday noon, people all around the world are making a difference. 

It would mean a lot to me if you could support me! The link for donating is below.
