The 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge lets us experience what it’s like to leave almost everything behind. By living out of your backpack for 40 hours, you can start to understand what it’s like for young people just like you to leave home with only a few essential items. We encourage you to join us on this journey.
But of course, it's all about raising money to lead change for young people who need it the most – 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; do it in a group or on your own.
