40 Hour Famine

Posted March 18th, 2014 at 2:43 AM by Remus

Alright so I know it's a long time away but,

The 40 hour famine got mentioned at school today and I think it's an amazing cause. Giving up something like technology for 40 hours to raise money for children in Africa is pretty awesome. Haven't participated before but I'm probably gonna give it a shot this year. Gonna go for either no technology or furniture. I need food. XD

Not really sure what this blog is about but I wanted to throw that out there. You guys should participate too if you can. Give up food, furniture, technology, something important for 40 hours. Raise money for poor people in all sorts of countries. It's in August if anyone's curious. :)

    How does this even work? Getting off your computer for a day and a half doesn't magically make money appear out of thin air. Where is the money coming from?

    You ask people to donate money for you? Just ask for donations or donate yourself. Not that hard. Obviously money won't come out of nowhere but come on. XD

    Technology is sort of a wimpy one tbh, oh noes I'm raising awareness of how hard it is to live without an iPhone... It'd be funny seeing you sitting on the floor in school. For me, 40 hours without clothes I think, doing it on a weekday and in Winter ;)

    We did it in school with food, although only for 30 hours. It was really fun, though.

    I've done a semi-famine for a month. No eating between 5am and 9pm lol You weren't even supposed to drink water, but I did anyway because it was the middle of July and I was dehydrated beyond belief.

    With the dependancy on technology nowadays, I wonder how you can even go 40h without. A school bus is technology. Intercoms are technology. Internet, PCs, video games, phones, etc. aside, there really isn't much you can do that isn't technology-related. Elevators, escalators, driving, using lights in the house, using the stove, using a fridge... All technology, technically

    Good luck!
