Additional information

Come join the Fast-a-ThonTOMORROW, where we challenge you to fast an entire day with us on Saturday, April 6, 2024. An Interfaith Fast-a-Thon is an event where individuals commit to fasting for a day and donating the money they would have spent on food to a social action cause. You can post your Fastathon pose in this shared album to share and reflect on your unique message and experience as a community because this event provides a unique opportunity for people from different faiths to come together, learn from each other, and work towards a common goal of social justice. Since fasting is a fundamental aspect of many religious practices, Fast-a-Thon’s primary objective will be to create an opportunity for individuals to discuss its significance and foster interfaith dialogue.
