As you may know, it is my Barmitzvah (Jewish 13 Birthday) in a few months – April 26 
To mark this milestone in my life I have decided to do something awesome and raise money for charity.
Most people do 1 marathon, running, walking or crawling to the finish line, I’m doing 13 marathons (546km or 339.2miles) on a unicycle that I taught myself to ride!
I chose the number 13 because it’s doable but still a challenge, but more importantly my Barmitzvah is when I turn 13 on the Jewish calendar.
The charity I’ve chosen is called roll out the barrel; it is a charity that gives poor children in undeveloped countries a new alternative to fetch water instead of carrying a heavy jug on their head or shoulder, some for miles each day. The charity has developed a hugely innovative but simple solution- a barrel which rolls on the ground that can be filled with up to 50 litres of water that can be taken home for all the family’s needs.
I like this charity for three reasons, number 1, everyone should have access to clean and safe drinking water wherever they live and it is something that most of us take for granted. Diarrhoea is the number 1 killer of children under 5 in the developing world and most of that comes from unsafe water. Number 2, I love the simplicity of this amazing project, it’s such a brilliant solution to an age old problem. Number 3, I love the idea that with each revolution of the wheel on my unicycle I'm creating a ‘water carrying revolution’ for children in developing countries.
I would really appreciate it if you would take a few minutes of your time and donate a few dollars or pounds; there will be a link for you to donate some money through either just giving or a bank transfusion,
