Guest Post From Mathura Ravishankar On The Upcoming 30 Hour Famine

Thanks to senior Mathura Ravishankar for all of her work in organizing the 30 Hour Famine at BHS.

30 Hour Famine is an international organization run by World Vision and is being introduced to Burlington High School for the first time this year. 92 students have signed up to fast from March 5 to March 6 to take a stance against world hunger. During the month of February, students have been collecting money, which will later be sent to World Vision to help reduce hunger and poverty around the world. Fasting will begin on Thursday March 5 at 12:30 PM and will end on Friday March 6 at 6:30 PM. Students participating in the fast will break it together at 6:30 pm in the cafeteria.
