2019 Sponsored Diet to Benefit Palestine

You are Invited!

You are invited to support Palestine by taking part in our Sponsored Diet, by either taking part in the diet yourself, or by sponsoring one of the dieters.

This fundrasier is to benefit:

Christian Peacemaker Teams in Palestine, and Khitam, our sponsored child. The donation page for Khitam is here, and the donation page for Christian Peacemaker Teams is here.

Israel restricts the amount of food going in to Gaza, a ruthless and deliberate policy whereby the dietary needs of the Gazan people are chillingly calculated to keep the population alive at a near starvation level. An Israeli minister joked that they were ‘putting the Palestinians on a diet’. Members of the international community are invited to join in a diet voluntarily to raise funds for Palestine and thereby show solidarity.

The Rules

  1. Weigh-in on Saturday Jan 5th 2019 at home or with fellow dieters.
  2. Dieters send a pledge to raise at least $100.
  3. Dieters will be added to the 2019 Sponsored Diet google group for mutual support and fun once pledge is received.
  4. Get sponsors (suggest $2 per pound, but there is no upper limit!)
  5. Eat less or differently
  6. Exercise more, on your own, or with your local group
  7. Weigh-out Saturday April 13th after 14 weeks
  8. Ask for money from sponsors. Two special web pages will be set up for donations to each beneficiary. Details to follow.
  9. Alternatively, checks may be sent to 14FP PO BOX. Details to follow.
  10. The money will be sent off to the two beneficiaries in the third week of May.
  11. Dieters and their sponsors may choose which organization to support. Therefore, the totals raised will not necessary be equal.
  12. Please note that your actual weight will remain confidential at all times

Those of you who do not need/wish to lose weight are invited to sponsor those of us that do.

If you want to join or sponsor someone, please email 14friendsofpalestine@gmail.com  

Please note that this is a fundraiser for Palestine, not just a diet club. Dieters pledge to raise at least $100. The current record raised from a single dieter is $3,000.
