Come join UNC MSA's annual Fast-A-Thon! Fast-A-Thon is a campus-wide effort encouraging non-Muslims to experience a day of fasting.
MSA has contacted some local businesses, and for each person that fasts, those businesses will donate money to us in your name which we will pool together and donate to a local charity-- Urban Ministry in Durham, NC.
The fast will occur on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 from 5:22am to 7:34pm. NO FOOD OR DRINK can cross your throat until 7:34pm. For everyone who fasted, we extend an invitation to the Great Hall at 7:00pm on Wednesday so that everyone can break their fast together with free food!
The Fast-A-Thon is being co-sponsored with the following organizations:
We are also encouraging everyone to donate to our cause online by clicking the donate button to the right. We ask that you donate a minimum of $5, or however much you would have paid for lunch that day. All proceeds go to Urban Ministry for Project Downtown, an educational and food service program for the needy in Durham.
