Natomas Teens Participate In 30-Hour Famine

Eighty teens from the FLIPT youth group recently gathered for World Vision’s 30-Hour Famine. The teens went without food for 30 hours, learned of global poverty, slept outside on cardboard boxes and fed Sacramento’s homeless.These Natomas youth wanted to step into the shoes of those less fortunate in order to raise awareness that 26,000 children who die every day because of hunger-related causes. They joined half a million teens nationwide to raise more than $12 million dollars and walked away from this experience convinced that they can win the fight against world hunger and preventable disease.
During a time where the world struggles to find its own security, these teens starved to find it for the neglected and suffering, a selfless and powerful message of love. Flipt was able to sponsor eight kids for life, in addition to raising more than $2,400 for the cause.
