Weʼre raising £350 to Help provide funds for Champions Home children's Orphanage in Salem, Southern India
- Salem, Tamil Nadu, India
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
After being inspired by my sister's heroics In Paris, the Newman's are back on their European marathon tour as I take on 26.2 miles in Amsterdam. So on the 21st of October, I will be trudging alongside the canals in the Dutch capital. Whilst doing so, I would love to take this opportunity to raise money and awareness for a small but great cause.
During my time in India I stumbled across Rajan, who with his wife Helen, founded Agape Christian Misson's Champion Home back on 2006. I had an incredible two weeks helping the children at the orphanage, and ever since it has always remained as a special place to me, despite being half way across the world. Through the generosity of friends and charitable donations 102 children are provided with daily education, full medical support, nutritional food and a clean home. But Rajan wants to extend his support and help over 250 children, aged 5-16, across the Tamil Nadu region. Current donations will help build new showers and accommodation as well as bicycles, musical instruments and a TV so that the children of Champions Home can enjoy the start to life that they deserve.
If you can give anything, no matter how small, it will make a huge difference for Rajan and the children at Champions Home. Thank you so so so much for your generosity and I will keep you posted on the marathon!
If you want to find out any more about Champions Home please e-mail Rajan on firstname.lastname@example.org
