THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family, 

I am running the Boston Marathon on the 15th of April, in order to raise money for Self Help Africa.  Although it will be a significant challenge for me to complete this race, I will be especially motivated by the excitement of knowing that it will benefit such a worthy cause.

I'm fully aware that there are many requests for sponsorship during the year but I would love if you could consider sponsoring me for this particular event. I have two ambitious goals – first to complete the run without sustaining any bodily harm and second to meet my personal goal of raising $5,000 for Self Help Africa.

Self Help Africa believes that the continent's poorest people will only see real and lasting change to their lives through long term rural development programs. With your donations, we can enable farmers to grow more food, diversify their crops and withstand drought. We can give opportunities to entrepreneurs, set up micro-credit unions, and help those most vulnerable to climate change. It truly is a help up rather than a hand out. 

Thanks for your support. 

David
