Try This: Unplug and Help the Poor

Use a churchwide “media fast” to raise money for those in need.

Organize a special event in which participants disconnect from all electronic media—cell phones, televisions, computers, etc.—for up to 48 hours. Use it as a way to raise money and awareness to help the poor. Encourage donations for each hour without media, and give the money to local programs that feed the hungry.
