John Albrecht

I'm taking a pause for a cause this February and extending my fast!

This is now my 6th year of Febfasting in the alcohol category and again I am committing to seeing this through with no Time Out passes! A proper fast from start to finish.

 

My ongoing collaboration with Febfast helps me meaningfully start my year healthier and, with your critical support, enables me to raise funds for disadvantaged young people in Australia. From overcoming mental health issues and the impact of abuse and neglect, to finding safe housing and tackling drug and alcohol problems, Febfast funds youth workers who connect with young people experiencing disadvantage and ultimately help them stand on their own two feet. 

 

And this year for the first time (and to mix things up!) I am committing to fasting for a little longer and will begin my journey this year from January 14th (Sunday to Thursday) - yep, a full 14 days more of fasting than I need to.

 

My hope is that adding 50% more days to my fasting period might encourage some (or all) of my existing donors to add a little extra to their donation amount from last year to reflect my extended commitment. 

 

But regardless, all donations (great and small) are greatly appreciated so thank you in advance for your support of my Febfast challenge.

A proud supporter of Febfast

 

PS Oh, and I promised my wife I wouldn't talk endlessly about my fasting at home or at work and drive everyone crazy!

Hi John, Your stamina during Febfast is inspiring. I am often reluctant to donate to charities; however this is a good cause & obviously something that you are passionate about. Hope that you succeed in reaching your goal. JD
