Quick! Sponsor me before I wither away.

Starting April 7th, Brian will eat only small meals of rice and beans — and only when a meal is sponsored.  He is an advocate with 25 in Change.  You may sponsor one of his meals for $25 if you promise to avoid “fast food” for 25 days.  Think you can do it?  I’d like to see you try:

Eating nothing but a small amount of rice and beans for a few days seems like a small and temporary inconvenience — a worthwhile exchange in order to raise funds to fight starvation and make these statements:

“Here’s some food.”
“Here’s some of my precious time.”
“Here’s a Savior who wants you alive and healthy: body, soul, and spirit.”
