1200 hours or 50 days

The 40 hour famine hasn't really hit my radar since I was a child or young teenager.
Funny how trust in your ability to change the world diminishes as you get older.

Ambitiously there is a challenge of 50 days living outside and of no speaking happening at The Strychnine Tree to raise awareness and money to help fight malnutrition in Bangladesh.

Her video got me thinking about both that indefatigable attitude/drive of teenagers and the ability of the internet.

Although one of the principles is about walking in someone elese shoes, is the fact it made me think and pledge a bit of money to World Vision enough, even if she doesn't see it through? You can donate here too.
