Thank you! You raised over $2 million and celebrated 40 years of the 40 Hour Famine!
You’ve made a huge difference to children in Malawi. Thanks so much to all the amazing Kiwis who took part in the 40 Hour Famine in 2014, and to those who helped organise and sponsor them. You have all been an important part of New Zealand's largest youth fundraising movement, and truly helped to change lives!

Every year, since 1975, Kiwis like you join together to improve the health, safety and future of children who need it most.

Awesome work Team Yellow!

This year Marty and his new team mate Steph, went all out – tying themselves together for 40 hours.

Not only did they take out the competition this year, they also raised more money than ever before!
