Local kids fast to raise money for Haiti

About 100 local kids are fasting for 30 hours to raise money for earthquake victims in Haiti. They are going without food and only drinking liquids. It's all a part of World Vision's 30-hour famine. The idea is to help children understand what life is like for people who live in extreme poverty.

The volunteers even spent the night in cardboard boxes outside of St. John the Divine Episcopal Church last night.
