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.

August’s #fastforpeace Charity
Each month, fastforpeace.org invites people to donate the money they’ve saved on food to help others. One of the ways that Mohandas Gandhi drew attention to inequality was by drawing water from wells used by “untouchables” as he traveled around India. Clean water continues to be a problem for many people around the world.
Charity: water is a non-profit that has funded over 38,000 projects worldwide to bring clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries, and their operating expenses are covered by private donors, so 100% of your donation goes to providing clean water. You can donate to August’s #fastforpeace charity on their website: www.charitywater.org
“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
