For the past 3 days, I haven't eaten any food.
I've resisted temptation against free, giant cupcakes and delectable catfish nuggets.
Both being a level 9 on the difficult to resist scale, but it's all worth it.
Myself and 36,000+ Americans are fasting to draw attention and protest the proposed Republican budget cuts. Budget cuts that would disproportionately impact the world's hungry and poor, both here and abroad.
If these budget cuts prevail, 100,000 pregnant and nursing mothers (and their children) will not receive food assistance, and global hunger programs will be cut, eliminating food for millions of kids in refugee camps.
And that's just the TIP of the iceberg; there is so much more on the line.
This greed is inexcusable, and if you think so too, take a stand.
Whether it's for a week, a few days or even one meal, fast and spread the word.
Blog, tweet and/or discuss your experience, and let everyone know why it's so important.
Let's stand in solidarity with those who need it the most.

P.S. I once fasted for 2 weeks. How did I even survive that?
