On December 5th, students around the world will ask their peers, families, and communities to join them in DarfurFast by fasting from one luxury item for one day and donating the money they would have spent on those items to protect civilians in Darfur. Just three dollars — less than the cost of a latte– can provide protection for one woman for a year.
In the past three years, STAND’s DarfurFast has raised more than $400,000 for civilian protection in Darfur. This year, we intend to raise even more. This holiday season, students will bring it home to their families and communities and ask them to join in solidarity for Darfur by pledging to participate in DarfurFast.
