Fast2Change: Fast on $2. Change your awareness.

Fri March 4 - Fri April 1 Ann Arbor, MI 48104 US


More than 700 million people live on $2 a day or less. These families don’t have consistent shelter, health care, clean water, education opportunities – and most pressing of all, they don’t have food. We're calling you to fast on $2 and change your awareness through Fast2Change.


What is Fast2Change?

Fast2Change is our annual Lenten awareness campaign to bring attention to extreme poverty. All of our scholars come from families who work and live in garbage dump communities around the world, where extreme poverty is the reality they live in. This year, we want to push ourselves to become more aware of their reality by doing a very special set of fasts through the month of March. You can Fast2Change in three steps:


Fast with Friends. Sign up to fast in solidarity starting Friday, March 4. You can pick one day or do them all, and you can fast individually or with a team. Fast2Change runs from the March 4th kickoff to April 1st.

Feed a Family. While we want you to focus on awareness, we are providing a way to fund food baskets for those who feel called to do so. It only costs $100 to feed a family of four for a month with a Samaritan food basket. As you fast with us, we challenge you to ask yourself: would you be able to feed a family? Would your team be able to feed a family for a full year?

Find your Calling. Every week in March, we’ll share challenges focused on uplifting marginalized communities, honoring human dignity, becoming better stewards environmentally, and participating in our global community. Do them all or mix and match. The choice is yours! See our full calendar of challenges on our challenge page.
