During the five day campaign, students from across the country will be making personal sacrifices to make their community a better place. Students will forgo their comforts and live outside on campus for five full days.

The campaign begins 5PM Sunday, March 10th, 2013 and ends 5PM Friday, March 15th, 2013.
2. Have no income.
100% of the funds donated to participants are passed on to each regions respective charity cause.
3. Have no food or drinks.
Food can only be received through direct donations, and all non perishable food must be held and donated.
4. Have only a pillow and a sleeping bag.
These items can be exchanged for an emergency meal.

Participants will complete all academic and extracurricular responsibilities, including student organizations and teaching positions.
