My fundraising goal:
Amount raised so far: $3,000
As I may have mentioned to you, I recently set myself a
goal of completing a marathon for my second year in New
York. This has been a rewarding, fun and time-consuming
process and I've been fortunate to have the support of
my wife, children and friends in that (modest) ambition.
I have raced many short distance events over the last
few years but none as long as these 26 miles. It would
be great to have your encouragement as I continue my
training and obviously during the race!
However, I'd like to turn this into something
more meaningful by asking you to help me raise money to provide
better healthcare and education for poor children in Peru. I'm
aiming to raise at least $5,000 and would like to ask you to
contribute to that target.
For many of us, we have an amazing chance to travel in many areas of
the world, but unfortunately we still see too much children
suffering from diseases that no children living in the US or in
Europe has even come close to. Poverty traps millions of children
around the world in a never-ending cycle. We can do something, even
at our modest level: help others to have a better future is not so
complicated. And letís start to help the non-profits to make the
difference with the poor and under-privileged children in Peru.
The Children of Peru Foundation is a small-sized
not-for-profit organization with a strong ethical approach. With
further support of this Foundation, the lives of many children could
be saved and we will help provide children with access to
life-changing essentials like free quality surgical and dental
services and educational opportunities.
Please join me in helping this cause. So, please pull out your
credit card and dig deep; I very much appreciate your support. Thank
