Fastforpeace.org invites all adults who are able to participate in a 24-hour, water only fast for peace on the 15th of each month. Individuals around the country or the world choose whatever 24 hours work best for them, with most of them falling on the 15th of the month, and abstain from food and all beverages except water. Breakfast-to-breakfast or dinner-to-dinner fasts are common ways to participate.
The project promotes M.K. Gandhi’s lessons of truth and nonviolence, tolerance for others, voluntary temperance, simplicity, and self-reliance, and promotes the monthly event on social media with #fastforpeace. Participants are also asked to donate the money they’ve saved on food to help others.Get Directions via Google Maps
