This was the theme and anthem I wrote for World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine 2015 Campaign. The theme was used as elements all through the writing of the 2015 materials (event guide, ads, mailers..nearly 50 different projects), but this was the catalyst to inspire leaders and students alike.
David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword . . . —1 Samuel 17:50
You have a choice.
You always have a choice.
When something happens, you can sit out, or stand up.
The world can stay the same, or you can help shape it.
When injustice hits, when more than 800 million are hungry,
you can hope someone else handles it,
or you can answer God’s call and make it your fight.
In the Bible story, David was the youngest.
Inexperienced. “Not good enough.” Made fun of.
Yet he chose to stand up—chose to make Goliath his fight.
And he won . . . because the battle was God’s.
You have a choice too.
To do the 30 Hour Famine and stand up for hungry children.
To represent the hungry by going hungry. To fight for the justice God loves.
The battle has always been His, He’s just waiting for you to volunteer.
Whether you’re a boy or a girl, whatever your story, He wants to use you.
And you know what? You. Can. Do. This.
Do World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine, and make hunger your fight.
Keep this anthem with you as you begin your group’s Famine journey. Tailor it to fit your style. Decorate the Internet with your theme-inspired ideas. Talk about it with the hashtags #30hf and #makeityourfight. Set a goal that feels bigger than you could ever reach. Make your 2015 Famine event your best one yet.
