|Prayer Circle before leaving for the mission|
Thanks for stoppig by to check out this blog post. For some of you this is pretty familiar, for others, this is brand new.
Each year my youth group (The SYDe) and I partner with Worldvision to help raise funds for starving children around the world through their program called the Worldvision 30 Hour Famine. As little as $35 can feed and care for a child for a month. This year I have a personal goal of $425, which will assist one child for a whole year. Depending on how you look at it, $425 could be a lot or a little. I am looking to I can get 425 sponsors to donate $1 my goal is met and a child's life is saved. Now don't feel that you're limited to donate just $1. If I can raise enough to personally save two or three kids from being hungry that would be even better!
To donate online, follow this link: Mr Ron's 30 Hour Famine Page
There are three buttons at the bottom of the page: "Donate $35" "Donate $70" and "Choose $ Amount" you can click any of those and it'll take you where you need to go.
If you would like to pay by check, you can send checks made payable to "Inglewood Southside Christian Church" to 3947 W. 104th St. Inglewood, CA 90303. Please note "30 Hour Famine" in the memo section.
If you prefer to bring your check or cash in person, you can visit us at 3947 W. 104th St. Inglewood, CA 90303. As a reminder, all donations are tax deductible and can count as a charitable contribution for next year's taxes.
My youth group and I will make a global impact by learning about world hunger and raising money for hungry children around the world and making a local impact through service projects and raising awareness during our 30 hours of fasting. We will be partnering with the Los Angeles Union Rescue mission this year to assist in their efforts to help the less fortunate of LA.

The Famine is our chance to make a difference, our chance to make hunger part of our history not our present, and our chance actually do something about hunger. Will you help me meet my goal?
Thank you in advance!
