Tearfund: To Bean Or Not To Bean?

 

Dear Friend,

 

How are those New Year’s resolutions going? Are you holding strong now that we’re in February or are you ready for a new challenge?

 

Well never fear, because the Mean Bean Challenge is here!

 

Wait, the Mean what?

 

The Mean Bean Challenge is Britain’s mightiest bean-related fundraising challenge. From 1923 March thousands of people up and down the country will be eating nothing but plain rice and beans all in the name of raising money to end poverty and hunger.

 

The hope of the world

For people like Matunda, going hungry every day isn’t a choice. She spends all day toiling on someone else’s farm, but the only thing she gets in return is a tiny handful of cassava leaves and yams. This is all she has to feed her family. You can read more of her heartbreaking story here <https://tearfund.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=cd19eb0b2a74af14054950f15&id=9b8f54714d&e=b67d6b82a4> .

 

We won’t stop until poverty stops. That means challenging ourselves to raise money so that people like Matunda can step into a better life.

 

The church is the hope of the world. When we join together, amazing things can happen. Hunger’s time is up. So join us by taking part in the Mean Bean Challenge and help beat hunger and poverty for good.
