1,500 Adventist young people decided this week that #enoughisenough.


On Jan. 3, around 1,500 Adventist kids and teens marched the streets of Brisbane, Australia asking people to do more to end world hunger, Record magazine reported.


These Adventist young people have been attending the South Pacific Division's World Changers Youth Congress this week.


ADRA Australia asked kids at the youth congress to post a picture of themselves (along with their name and what country they're from) and uploading it to their social networks with the hashtag #enoughisenough.


But it's not slacktivism. These young people have raised $10,000 to help ADRA fight world hunger and also helped "collect canned and non-perishable food" in northern Brisbane, according to Record magazine.


Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is an international humanitarian agency run by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Below are two videos from ADRA Australia about the awareness project.
