Join us in a fast for peace on June 15, 2024


What is the fast for peace?

The fast for peace answers Gandhi’s challenge.
“The fifteenth is the day of our trial. Observe a fast on that day.”

The fast for peace promotes Gandhi’s lessons:
truth and nonviolence;
tolerance and voluntary temperance;
simplicity and self-control.

The fast for peace on the 15th is simple:
Just drink water for 24 hours.
No food, no intoxicants.
Put a peaceful intention in your day.

The fast is an open invitation for cooperation.
Peace is possible if we want it.
Who will fast for peace?

May’s #fastforpeace Charity

Each month, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they saved on food to help others. Clean water continues to be a problem for many people around the world, and May’s #fastforpeace charity is a non-profit that has funded over 150,000 projects worldwide to bring clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries – Charity: water. Their operating expenses are covered by private donors, so 100% of donations goes to providing clean water. You can donate to May’s #fastforpeace charity on their website:

“Fasting is an age-old institution. We fast when we do not feel pure, we fast as a penance for our past.” ~ M.K. Gandhi
