30 Hour Famine Fundraiser
» DONATE DIRECTLY TO WORLD VISION «
Inspired by Christian humanitarian values, World Vision is an international organization that promotes justice and provides emergency relief, education, food, and health care to impoverished children and their communities around the world. In 2007 Charlie was chosen to be the youth national spokesperson for World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. He was featured on the promotional video (adjacent) along with Ronald, a 13 year old boy from Uganda. Following the making of the video, Charlie was chosen to travel to Uganda as a representative of World Vision. There, he worked to feed malnourished refugee children from Sudan and built a lasting relationship with Ronald. Funds donated to World Vision in Charlie Butterworth’s name go Africa to help Ronald and the village Charlie worked with in Uganda. Please reference code: 21507326 when making a donation.
