So I’m in the last few official hours of the World Vision 30-Hour Famine… for the past 30+ hours (I didn’t eat right before it began), I have had nothing except many glasses of water, and I have managed to raise half of my personal goal. To be honest, I don’t think 30 hours is that bad at all; yes, I have been quite hungry over the course of the day, but it was not anything too unreasonable. More than anything, I’m tired and sick of having to go pee. I suppose that people taunting me with food was not entirely welcome, but I can deal with that.

Yesterday, I was asked why I was doing this. I didn’t give that much of a response, because I didn’t really give it much thought. When I heard about it, I jumped right in without a reason except that I know that it was for a very good, worthwhile cause. I always go on and on about how thankful I should be for the luxuries that I have in this life, and how I should try and not take all of it for granted. Well, it looks like I’ve practiced what I preached, and I’m very happy to do so.

I guess I will end this with a challenge for you and for me: I will contribute an amount in excess of what I collect from others. So if I manage to somehow collect $1000, I’ll put at least that into this cause. I will, however, think that it would have been a pretty mean trick to pull on me, but I won’t be resentful 😛 You have up until the beginning of April to put in your pledge, so please let me know if you are interested in helping me out. Thank you, and God bless!
