Del Hall is the director of sales at Fifty West Brewing Company, which is based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Many people give up alcohol for Lent, which commemorates the 40 days that Jesus fasted in the desert according to Christian theology. However, Hall is doing the opposite. He is only drinking beer until Easter.

Hall says that he was inspired by German monks from the 1600s. They brewed a beer during lent called a doppelbock, which is richer in carbs, and drank only that rather than eating solid foods.

Hall explained to Insider...

"I feel like if I do this, and I finish the 46 days, and I'm a sane man, moving forward, if I'm presented with an unhealthy food option, I can say I don't need to eat that right now."

We're not quite sure how drinking beer only for 46 days can help someone stay away from fried food, but sure, we'll go with it. Hall went on to explain that he plans to document the whole experience a la Super Size Me.

He's even graced us with daily update videos.

A tornado ripped through southeastern Alabama this week and killed 23 people. Natural disasters often bring out the best in people. People band together in wonderful ways. Chief among them in Alabama is the Poarch Band of Creek Indians tribe. They are making a $184,000 donation to cover funeral costs for those who died. The tribe doubled its donation after another group who had committed to donating money to victims families pulled out.

They posted this statement on Facebook.

The statement reads...

"The Tribe is making a $184,000 donation to the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation to assist in the burial of the victims from last Sunday's devastating tornado in Lee County, AL. It is at times of greatest need that we often see our communities coming together to help one another, this is one of those times. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected."

According to CNN...

"The money will be donated to the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation so that none of the money is spent on administration costs."

And the Lee County coroner Bill Harris stated...

"My goal was to be able to provide what the families wanted" for "this casket or this service without having to scrimp because they didn't have the money. These folks have stepped up for a community need, and I appreciate that."

The destruction from the tornado was devastating.

People thanked the Poarch Band of Creek Indians for their donation.




Many people's hearts were warmed.



In times of crisis it's important to band together to help. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is doing just that.
