UPDATE: Target met & exceeded! $1415 in donations received so far – keep them coming!
** New bounties & targets added – see below **
I’m doing the World Vision 40 Hour Famine in August.
I am going without food for 40 hours to raise money to help kids around the world who are suffering from chronic hunger.
My goal is to raise $1000
Could you please support me, and them, by making a donation?
Donate online here: http://40hf.com/joshrowe/ – it’s tax deductible !
To make things even more challenging I am willing to forego the following things during my 40 hour famine if the donation targets are met.
For example if a total of $200 is donated, then I will forgo food, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Google+ for the 40 hour famine.
