30 hours? Wow! I could do that though. Are you allowed to drink anything?

Hmmmmm.... I don't get it.

I greatly admire the cause, and you've got my respect for doing something to help others out... but the method seems a bit questionable. It seems a little like shooting yourself in the foot to help victims of gun violence.

Won't you be able to raise more money if you aren't starving? Or is it some sort of deal where you get x amount of $ for every hour you don't eat, like a sponsored walk a thon or something?

Don't get me wrong - again, I think it'* great you are doing something. I just don't see how punishing your body is helping anything.

You're raising money for starvation by starving yourself? You should instead have a hot dog-eating contest or something.

Good luck! In college I had gone a whole day without eating before. Nowadays, I'm starving by 10am if I don't have anything.
