FAQs

Firstly, find out if your school or church are participating in this year’s 40 Hour Famine. If they are, speak to your Famine Organiser and they will give you a Sponsorship Book. You can scan the QR code on the front of the book to activate an online fundraising profile. 

If you are taking part as an individual, the easiest way to fundraise is to activate an online fundraising profile at famine.org.nz and select ’40 Hour Famine 2019’. You can then personalise your page, your fundraising goal as well as email friends and family and share on social media.  

If you would rather collect the donations in cash face to face, order your Sponsorship Book here. When you get your Sponsorship Book, scan the QR on the front of the book to activate your online fundraising profile and connect your online profile to your Sponsorship Book. Don’t have a QR reader? No worries, enter the URL under the QR code on the front of your Sponsorship Book to take you to the sign up page.
