Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my Just Giving Page for BBC Children in Need.

The idea of this page is to raise money for the BBC's Charity 'Children in Need'. The charity does fantastic work for many children in the UK and worldwide (http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/).

My idea is for people associated with UK Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to donate all raised funds through one site so we can show the collective total of UK MMA together. Please also tell friends, fans and family of Martial Arts or just anyone donating to Children in Need to donate through this link. If everyone on my facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/tomkongwatson - 7,858 people) donates ten pounds we would raise a staggering £78,580!!!

Over recent months MMA has received much negative press, some warranted and some not. I would like this fundraising page to demonstrate how members of the UK Martial Arts community help Children daily throughout the UK, The classes at the gym's we train/teach at all year round help change many young lives for the better. I feel strongly that the Media needs to recognise MMA is a fantastic sport in the UK, not this perpetuated street brawlin', child-fighting furore we have been labelled as repeatedly over recent months. I hope we can turn the tide on the current media portayal and public perception and give many young people a better chance at the same time.

Any fundraising activities qualif,y just give this link as your donation base and hopefully on Friday 18th November we can give a huge cheque to Children in Need on the BBC from UK MMA!

I have set a target of £10,000 for Children In Need but I genuinely believe if everybody takes one minute to donate and spread the word of this link we will raise far more than many huge companies in the UK. Just let us know if you have a fundraising event at tomkongwatson@hotmail.co.uk and I will do my best to spread the word using Facebook and Twitter to promote your event. 100% of any money raised will be donated by Just Giving and don't forget to click the Gift Aid box if your a UK taxpayer!!
