    It's one thing to contribute time or money to a fundraiser. It's another to go without - just like the people you're trying to help.

    Nearly 70 students last week went without food for 30 hours. That's a long time - especially for growing teenagers.

    These teens were trying to raise money to help put a stop to world hunger. And raise money is just what they did - enough to feed more than 80 children for an entire year.
