*25,000 children die every day because of preventable causes like disease,
poverty, and hunger.  We're doing something to change that.  This year, EDGE
will be doing a 30 hour famine where we will fasting for 30 hours straight.
You can help too!  Here's how:

1.  Participate!  The famine will be going from 12:30 PM on Friday, April
23rd to 6:30 PM on Saturday April 24th.  If you would like to participate in
the famine or would like more information contact Tanya Blowey at
tblowey@une.edu

2.  Donate money!  The funds we are raising will be going to an organization
called World Vision.  They will be using the money to help feed children
around the world.  Think about it like this:  just 35 cents will give a
child a meal!  Give a dollar and you will be feeding a child for a day!  A
small amount of money can go a long way!  If you would like to donate
contact Dayna Collins at dcollins2@une.edu.

3.  Donate food!  We will also be collecting non-perishable food to donate
to a local shelter.  If you would like to donate food contact Tanya Blowey
at tblowey@une.edu.*
