Detailed Description: The 30 Hour Famine partners with groups (youth groups, school clubs, or other organizations) to raise money for hunger relief and sustainability development in specific areas around the world. The program urges participants to raise money, and then participate in a "Famine event", during which the participants go 30 hours without food to get a taste of what hunger is like. the funds raised are then sent in to World Vision and the money is used in the pre-selected areas (as promoted in the 30 Hour Famine materials).
Funds can be raised through any combination of direct fundraising (funds are given directly to participants who then send them in), or online donations. Online donations can be handled through the donors area of the 30 Hour Famine web site.
