well, i just got home from the "famine" and thanks for all of the pictures luckily i didnt have internet so i didnt see those

we raised money for a charity for starving children by collecting donations. the whole reason for not eating for 30 hours is so that we can feel what many people around the world feel everyday and its supposed to be an expirience for us, and let me tell you it was.

longest 30 hours ever, i almost ate just on an automatic reaction, but luckily i caught myself. the funny thing was that when i slept i had a dream about a chipotle burrito

I usually eat one meal a day. But drink lots of coffee

And the Muslims do this all the time. It'* what Ramadan (sp?) is all about...

Okay, after looking it up, it'* not what it is all about, but it'* a big part of Ramadan

Quote:
The most prominent event of this month is the fasting practiced by most observant Muslims. The fasting during Ramadan has been so predominant in defining the month that some have been led to believe the name of this month, Ramadan, is the name of Islamic fasting, when in reality the Arabic term for fasting is Sawm.

Muslims are prohibited from eating, drinking, smoking, and engaging in sexual intercourse between a husband and his wife from dawn (fajr) to sunset (maghrib). One of the principal aims of fasting is to sympathise with those less fortunate ones who do not always have food and drink readily available. Also one must try to avoid cursing and thinking evil thoughts. Fasting is also viewed as a means of controlling one'* desires (of hunger, thirst, sexuality etc.).

Is it me, or does this sound like a very dumb thing to do.

For at least myself, if i where to forcefully starve myself even for 5 hours it would throw me out of whack for a few days. This almost seems like it could do more harm than good.

Personally i rather cut them a check for $50 bucks then go eat something. Silly religion.

You should be very proud of what you have done. We have several kids here who are did the 30 hour famine, and for those of you who are not informed, this is a huge fundraiser, and no it is not silly. We are truly luck to be be of the 1/3 of the population of the world who has enough food, the rest of the world is in need.

I don't think it'* silly, I don't think anybody said it was.Very far from silly, in fact.

Anything anyone is willing to do to help others out is heroic, IMO. It'* just that in my case, I'd be more willing to donate $50 than to go hungry for 30 hours. In fact, if you have a place to send the $50, I'll do it Thursday. And believe me when I tell you - donating $50 will cause me MUCH more pain (financially) than going without food for 30 hours ever would.

Edit - One condition: I don't donate to harversters, or united way. Local, community organized events, by all means. Large corporate food organizations have too much overhead, and it'* my (perhaps uninformed) opinion that most of the donations to these organizations (in the form of $) end up gong to the wrong place. I want to help feed people, or help to pay to get the food there .... not to help some president get his salary. Also when I worked at a large corporation, which I'll leave nameless, it was made very clear that if you didn't donate, there would be repurcussions. All this so some CEO could announce he beat last years donation total. Left a bad taste in my mouth.
