BENEFITING: ACUMEN

THE STORY:

Hey I’m Phillip “The Posing Cyclist” and on the 31st March 2012 I am going to be peddling over 15,000km from London to Capetown,with the goal of raising $25,000 for my favourite non-profit organisation - the Acumen Fund.  This is an  organization dedicated to eliminating poverty by using entrepreneurial methods .    

I will be cycling unsupported,with all my equipment on my bike through rain, hail, and extreme heat across 13 countries,taking me roughly 12 months to complete.

As a way of showing my personal appreciation for anybody who is kind enough to donate to the Acumen Fund, I am going to publicly thank any person who sponsors the tour by taking a photo of a thank you message on my trip with the name of the generous donor.  The photos will be shared on my facebook fan page and I will also link them to google maps, so you can see exactly where each photo was taken.

If you would like a very short custommessage (maybe a happy birthday for a friend or the URL for your blog) included in the message,  just message me right after you have made your donation.

 

And for those of you that don’t want to be thanked publicly just message me with subject ‘opt out’ or simply donate anonymously.

Naturally, I will not have access to the internet at all times,so I cannot give you an exact time for how long it will take me to update my blog and facebook page.  

I’m going to try to update at least once a week, though there may be times when that is simply not possible.

 

So why am  I supporting the Acumen Fund?

 

What I personally love about the Acumen Fund is their approach in tackling poverty.  Rather than giving out donations and grants,they invest in local enterprise and businesses who want to provide critical services (water, health, housing and alternative energy) at affordable prices to people earning less than four dollars a day.   

By sponsoring me on this tour your donation will go directly to the Acumen Fund to help them build businessesthat service the poor.

 

Please contribute what ever you can afford by clicking on the orange donate button and don't forget to be  become a fan on facebook to keep updated.

A massive thanks in advance for your donations and support.

 

Phillip
