University of Cincinnati's MSA Fast-a-Thon

From: The University of Cincinnati's Muslim Students Association

SPREAD THE WORD: Today (Monday) is the last day to pledge to fast tomorrow. Please spread the word to all your friends to pledge online here:

The University of Cincinnati's MSA would like to welcome all students to go hungry for a change. This day will give students an opportunity to experience the hunger children face everyday in areas like Africa and other third-world regions. 

All students who pledge will be treated with dinner which also includes entertainment at the Great Hall in TUC from 5:00 PM - 9:00 on November 22nd.

Our guest of honor will be Lauren Lovette who will be speaking about her experiences being homeless; she is one of the most highly-requested speakers in Cincinnati in relation to hunger and homelessness. She is now a student at the University of Cincinnati.

Also, we are honored to have Tarek El-Messedi, the co-founder of Fast-a-thon, who will be speaking about this wonderful event and what sparked it, as well as the importance of fasting in the Islamic faith.

Pledge forms can be found at All proceeds raised at the event will be donated to different charity organizations including the Free Store Foodbank and Islamic Relief (donations to Somalian orphans). We hope to see you all there, GO Bearcats!
