St. Martin's is inviting any youth from other parishes in the deanery to help raise money for World Vision through the 30 Hour Famine. For those who haven't heard of the 30 Hour Famine before, it's the world's biggest youth fundraiser. The money raised goes to education, safety, nutrition, and water projects all around the world.
The St. Martin's famine will take place on Friday-Saturday May 25-26. Prior to that, participants will be gathering pledges from family, friends, and fellow parishioners. On May 25th, participants will stop eating at 1 PM on Friday, and will proceed to St. Martin's at 7:30 PM. At 7 PM the next day, we will all break our fast with a pizza feast (it usually ends up being the best tasting pizza you'll eat all year). In between, we'll be playing games, watching TV, hanging out, and generally having a great time. If you're lucky, you might even get some sleep.
If your parish youth group or any individuals are interested, contact Mike Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so you can start fundraising.
