In high school my youth group and I participated in the 30 Hour Famine to help raise money and awareness to combat world hunger. We talked to people in our church and community to give donations, and then we all got together and fasted for 30 hours.
We all stayed overnight at the church/school – we had the option of doing a juice fast or a water fast (the 2nd year I participated I did the water fast with my youth director). We also did activities and games related to the 30 Hour Famine ‘curriculum’.
All in all it was a really gratifying experience. You don’t normally think about not having enough to eat, and most may not even have the opportunity to raise money like that. Definitely something I would do again.
I have before but I can’t go for long periods of time without food Because I have a small case of hypoglycemia. It’s where if I go to long without food I feel kinda sick and I start shaking. But I have fasted for a few things before.
