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, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they saved on food to help others, and nominate charities or causes during the post-fast survey. As a young man, Gandhi volunteered for the British Army and served under fire; in his later years, he spoke out against war. Many men and women have gone through similar transformations; Veterans For Peace was selected for August’s #fastforpeace charity. Members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use their experiences and nonviolent means to build a culture of peace by informing the public of the true causes and costs of wars, advocating for a dismantling of the war economy as an instrument of national policy. You can learn more about their efforts and make a donation through their website, https://www.veteransforpeace.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
