Grace's Story

Grace comes from a large family in Australia. She has been deeply passionate about feeding the world’s children ever since she first took part in the World Vision Australia's 40 Hour Famine. The fundraising event encourages young people to give something up for 40 hours, to raise funds to address global poverty and hunger. Grace handwrote hundreds of letters to family, friends and Australian businesses to raise as much money as possible, and her efforts were rewarded. She has raised over $115,00 over the last three years. Grace’s greatest motivation is the impact of hunger on children. She looks forward to staying involved with the World Vision Australia's 40 Hour Famine and wants to encourage others to stand up for children’s rights too.
