Starving for a good cause.

Today at 8:30am, I completed something that I had never thought I would ever do. My school was holding a famine, starting Thursday midnight, until Saturday morning (about 30 hours). The school decided to organize some activities to do overnight, since we were not aloud to leave the school after having arrived at 5:00pm on Friday. The entry fees are going to be given away to the "Save the Children" charity, so they can buy food for starving kids around the world.
Now, I never would have done this if it wasn't for my friends. They dragged me into it, but at the same time, I was curious to see if I could last that long without food. It turned out to be a lot of fun, as there were fun group games being played, scary movies to watch, and even a Wii to play! It seemed that I had forgotten all about my growling stomach throughout the evening and felt good that I had completed the challenge, not eating a single bite. I would like to encourage anybody in or out of school to try this kind of thing some time. Gather some friends, have some fun, and save some lives
