For Hunger. Live Hunger. Experience Hunger. End Hunger
World Fasting Day (WFD) is in recognition of all the starving men, women, and children throughout the world
World Fasting Day is a 501 (c)(3) tax deductible charity recognized by the IRS (EIN: 82-1455068). We are a NOT-FOR-PROFIT CORPORATION/global effort aimed exclusively at ending world hunger. Our initiative is to dedicate a day to raising money for the hungry people around the world. Giving us time to understand the values of food and water.
Our idea, to fast (abstaining from eating & drinking) for one day, to learn about how much our bodies need food and water to thrive. Where participants around the world join together as one and fast in remembrance of those who are unfortunate to have the food and water we often take for granted. We encourage you to donate the funds you would've spent on eating & drinking to less fortunate, hungry people who are in dire need of food and water around the world.
The date of December 1st was initiated due to the fact it is the time of giving, just in time for the holiday season. Thanksgiving has just passed where we express gratitude for the life, family, and food we have around us. That exact time while our tables are filled to the edges, there are people who are not even fortunate to share a piece of bread. WFD also falls right before Christmas, the time of giving and being joyous. Where there are people on the other side of the world who never even experienced the term of being "joyous".
After all, most of us could take a break from eating for one day.
We will never give up until the world is free from hunger.
TOGETHER WE WILL END WORLD HUNGER FOREVER!
World Fasting Day is possible due to the tremendous support of our hardworking volunteers, employees and especially our participants throughout the world who are willing to sacrifice a day worth of food for those suffering from this tragedy of hunger. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your dedication. Now let's go end hunger!
