TORONTO, CANADA (570 News) - More than 100,000 young Canadians plan to go hungry today.

They are taking part in the World Vision 30 Hour Famine, which hopes to raise $5-million for Haiti relief efforts.

Students, and youth organizations from across the Region are also getting involved. World Vision's Karen Flores says a number of local churches and students are taking part in the event. The goal for youth is to raise money, while experiencing what it feels like to go hungry.

The event will be streaming live online at famine.ca. Joannie Rochette, Mike Fisher, Danny Fernandes, and rock band Faber Drive will join other Canadian celebrities in the broadcast.

Many of the celebrities have been involved with World Vision before. Flores says Faber Drive recently took a trip with World Vision to the Dominican Republic. They did some live blogging to show that the famine funds raised are going to the right place.
