James Kelly's Fundraiser:

Goal USA NYC 2013

THE STORY:

Hey everyone,

I'm not running just one marathon but TWO MARATHONS in ONE WEEK!!!

What better way to do this than to support children living on the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. These children are living in conditions that we will never understand. But what we can do is try to support them through whatever donations we can round up as a group.

I have worked with GOAL in two emergency response situations, Haiti and Pakistan, and have seen how far your donation goes. You wouldn't believe how a small donation such as €10, €20 or €50 will go in an organisation like GOAL but believe me it really does save lives. Currently GOAL work with an estimated 3 million people across 13 countries but for this fundraiser I'm asking you to support a few hundred street children that GOAL work with on a daily basis in Ethiopia. I accept and understand that there is great need for charity at home, especially the past few years, but when you work with street children in the developing world you can't help but want to provide an education, food, a place to sleep, a shoulder to rest on or an ear to listen to their daily struggles.

Please donate whatever you can afford to. If you can't afford to donate then a quick email of support to help get through this training is always welcome. There is just 2 weeks left until the Dublin Marathon and 3 weeks to the NYC so it is almost here.

Please read a few words about GOAL at www.goal.ie. You can donate using this website as it is quick and easy. 

Many thanks in advance and come support on the day if you are in Dublin and NYC (details to follow on a pub location close to the finish line for both cities!).

Over and out (from a very sore and broken),

James
