Fastathon is a voluntary, 24-hour "fasting marathon" organized by Save the Children as a demonstration of solidarity to raise funds for the hunger crisis in West Africa. While our event this year took place on Thursday, August 23, we are continuing to raise funds until we can make hunger history in West Africa!

You can participate in Fastathon at any time of year; consider donating based on your level of participation:

• Skip a snack or a cup of coffee (suggested donation $10)
• Miss a meal (suggested donation $25)
• Fast* for 24 hours (suggested donation $100)

Or, start your own fundraising team and ask 10 friends to donate $10 each! To get started, follow this link: http://www.causes.com/FundraiseFastathon and search for Save the Children Federation, then select the "Fastathon 2012 - Helping Hungry Kids in West Africa" fundraising project.

By raising at least $100 you can help us reach our goal – $100,000 for the children and families in West Africa who are fasting involuntarily.

Thank you for your support! Together, we can save children's lives.

*Please Note: We recommend that you consult your physician before fasting. You should not fast if you if are pregnant or nursing, under the age of 18 or are elderly, or suffer from any chronic medical condition(s).
