About #fastforpeace

Fastforpeace.org was founded August 15, 2017, on the 70th anniversary of when Gandhi challenged the people of India to observe a fast on their independence day. It is a project that promotes Gandhi’s messages, and all who can safely participate are invited to join in a day of fasting, wherever they are around the world.

Will you join us on the 15th of this month for the next 24 hour #fastforpeace?

“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.” ~ M.K. Gandhi
