Help me support the 30 Hour Famine

It’s a tragedy anytime a child dies.

And when 24,000 of the world’s children die every day from the same cause, something needs to be done about it.

That’s why I’m raising money this year for the 30 Hour Famine, an event sponsored by WorldVision, a national group that raises money to fight hunger and preventable diseases.

I’m raising money through my company, NeedNexus, and it’s really easy to help.

NeedNexus matches people with needs with service providers who can help.

Needs can include anything that needs done around the home, office or community organization where you’re involved.

It’s a free site that saves you time and money. Your only cost is the cost of your project.

All you have to do is register for free as a buyer on the site, and then post any need you have as well as the referral code N003.

NeedNexus will donate $3 from each need posted to the 30 Hour Famine.

Funds raised by 30 Hour Famine participants help feed and care for children in communities in need around the globe through World Vision. A portion of the funds raised assist families in need in the United States. Famine funds contribute to World Vision’s response in areas where famine, conflict, and other crises make children vulnerable to hunger and preventable disease. Since 1992, 30 Hour Famine has raised close to $140 million, representing countless lives saved. World Vision works in nearly 100 countries, helping approximately 100 million people every year.

It’s a great way to complete projects that need done while helping a great cause.

Can you help me out? I would really appreciate it.
