40 Hour Famine

This year Christian College Middle School is participating in the 40 Hour Famine....and it starts TODAY!

Our Devotional Prefects have put together a video clip to help encourage and inspire our students to consider how we approach this from a Faith perspective. Please check it out!

World Vision has been raising funds through the 40 hour famine for many years now with a desire to wipe out global poverty. Students have been invited to participate by choosing to give something up for 40 hours over the weekend of the 19 – 21 August. Students are choosing to give up things like food, furniture, social media etc. In order to fundraise, they are asking friends and family to sponsor them. Our Middle School goal is $5000 which is very achievable if everybody gives something, however big or small. We are so excited to see so many students wanting to participate in such a meaningful and sacrificial way.

If you would like to give towards our goal of $5000, head to http://www.40hourfamine.com.au/, click on ‘Support a team’ and type in Christian College Highton – Middle School,  then click ‘GIVE NOW’. Every donation will make a real difference to children suffering due to poverty and hunger.
