BENEFITING: Somaly Mam Foundation
We have been travelling asia for the past year and it has truly been an amazing and rewarding experience. We have learnt alot and seen things that make you have to do something......
whilst in cambodia we saw a girl of no more than 11 years old dressed in adult clothes and make up being bought by a peadophile on the steet, it was heartbreaking and devestating to realise that even if we could dtop her being taken by this man she would be sent back to the same place to be bought by another peadophile. thi sis the reality for 8000 children in Cambodia and thousands more across Asia. taht is why we chooose to raise money fo rthe samazing Somaly Mam Foundation “change can start with one, but movements are created by working together.”
So what can we do???
FIrtsly we just want our friends and family to read this and research these charities, be aware of the horrors affecting children around the world and raise awareness of the work being done to support and help.
........... and secondly drum up as much cash as possible for our 2 charities!!!! every penny, cent, rihl, ruppee counts. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give as much as you can afford.
So what are we doing to warrant you giving over your hard earned cash?
We have decided to punish ourselves by completing 3 gruelling events, we will...
1. Hike to Everest Base Camp. This is a 120 mile trek over 21 days climbing 9000 metres in total.
2. Bungee jumping off a bridge in Nepal 160 metres high
3. Completing the half marathon in Chesterfield
So the trio of torture has been set...the first will be agonzing for both of us, the second we are both absolutely terrified of and the third is Rich's idea of a living nightmare.
So in honour of us beasting ourselves to help end slavery and stop poverty please give generously!!!!!
100% of monies donated will go to the charities, we will pay for all activities and fees personally.
