PASS MY PLATE

PassMyPlate is an educational challenge promoting awareness of how extreme poverty, defined by the World Bank at $1.90 or less a day, has resulted in a hunger epidemic affecting millions around the world.

Funds raised by this challenge will help us build sustainable food solutions for children living in Sub-Sahara Africa who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. The project is a way to help these children and their guardians break a cycle of poverty and achieve health and self-sufficiency.

Providing food and hope to children is not the only benefit of PassMyPlate. The project enhances participants’ understanding of global issues.

  • PassMyPlate addresses important causes—global health, global hunger, and global poverty—while promoting an important value—sustainability

  • We provide recipes and suggested menus to make your planning easier

  • You can participate for 1 day or for 1 week

  • Invite friends and do this as a team!  Funds last longer this way.

  • Goal: $35,000 to help 360 families

Event Details

30,000 MILES

#30000Miles is a virtual walk/run through Africa. The goal is for participants to walk a collective 30,090 miles, either by simply going about their daily routine or by actively walking/running to help AFCA reach its goal. Steps/miles are tracked by Fitbit, Garmin or a free app provided at registration. If participants want to, they can fundraise beyond the $25 registration fee, but there is no requirement to do so. Of course, there will be a nice gift for those who decide to fundraise and who reach a specific goal.

The walk/run begins on April 15, and ends on June 17 or whenever the collective goal of 30,000 miles is reached, whichever is first.

#30000Miles allows walkers and runners to provide critical aid to children without changing their daily routine – any number of steps taken in a day will help us reach the capitals of all countries in mainland Africa, without having to travel!

Anyone can help, wherever they live.

Every step helps.

  • Registration is now open

  • At registration, participants will register their Fitbit, Garmin or free app (provided by AFCA)

  • Registration is $25

  • The more people who participate, the faster we’ll walk through Africa. So, invite all your friends!

  • Be one of the first 100 to raise $100 or more and receive a 30000 t-shirt
