The 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge lets us experience what it's like to leave almost everything behind. By living out of our backpacks for 40 hours, we can begin to understand what it's like to pack just a few essential items, just as these children have had to do. We encourage you to join us on this journey and united, we can make a change - we can support refugee and displaced children through the funds we raise.
But of course it's all about raising money to help some of the world's most vulnerable children, so how you do that is up to you. You could give up food or technology, sleep in a box, wash cars, hold your own fundraiser, walk 40 kilometres - the choice is yours! Be as creative as you like and do it in a group or on your own.
