Fast for Peace is a project that promotes Gandhi’s messages of truth and nonviolence, tolerance, and voluntary temperance.
The 15th of every month is a #fastforpeace day. Members and non-members alike are invited to participate.
Gandhi inspired millions by demonstrating truth and nonviolence as facets of self-control.
He fasted at the risk of his own life and saved countless others.

Each month, fastforpeace.org encourages participants to donate the money they save on food to help others. Mohandas Gandhi recognized that widespread poverty in India was a complex problem, so he promoted a variety of solutions as part of a constructive program to help uplift and improve people’s lives.
Along that theme, April’s charity of the month is Common Hope. Rated 4 stars by Charity Navigator, Common Hope works to address poverty in Guatemala. Their broad efforts include programs in education, health care, housing, and family development. You can find more information on their website, http://www.commonhope.org, including many pictures of children that are being helped.
“Fasting is regarded by all religions as a great discipline. Those who voluntarily fast become gentle and purified by it. A pure fast is a very powerful prayer. It is no small thing for [hundreds of thousands] of people to voluntarily abstain from food… It ennobles individuals and nations” ~ Mohandas Gandhi
