40 Hour Famine – Team Yellow

Kiwi Kids News caught up with Marty and Steph from the 40 Hour Famine Yellow Team and asked them a few questions about the upcoming event.

What are you looking forward to about the 40 Hour Famine this year?
We’re so excited to be leading Team Yellow again this year. Last year we dominated! Team Yellow raised the most amount of money of any team in the history of the 40 Hour Famine! – MARTY

Why do you reckon Kiwis should take a stand for the people of Bangladesh?
We are all guilty of getting caught up with our own problems; we often forget there are people out there in the world who are struggling to survive everyday with no means to proper nutrition and sanitation. – STEPH

If you could have a super power, what would it be?
I’d love to control the weather! Imagine all you want to do is go to the beach for a swim, BUT you can’t because it’s raining! And then KABOOOYA… thanks to my power it’s a beautiful sunny day. Also would be pretty handy helping people out in countries with droughts. I could make it rain whenever they needed it! – STEPH

My super power would be the ability to turn every 40 Hour Famine member into team yellow. – MARTY

What are you giving up this year?
Last year we gave up our personal space. It was an in-ter-est-ing experience. I’m not sure if I’d want to be tied to Marty for 40 hours again – bathroom time was a little awkward. This year we’re going to leave it up to our Smash viewers and listeners to decide what we do! Ideas are welcome!

Why should people join your team?
You’d want to join a winning team won’t you? Join Team Yellow! – MARTY
