Dear Friend and Laughter Enthusiast
Don't know how compelling my idea is but for me it is a big step to jump in a body suit made of feathers and hopefully raise some funds for charity whilst hanging mid-air...
10 years ago I was diagnosed with MS and again this year someone showed me my brain and told me there were clear signs of MS. I don't know what that means and I don't know how many chances I get to fly for England and Denmark. I don't even know how many chances I get to raise funds for some organisations who do amazing work for us all and our children including MS Society, Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish, and Theodora Children's Charity.
I would love to do this to show that no matter what we face in life we are not too old and we are not too serious either. Laughter and playfulness helps us cope and this is exactly what is needed for us all. I will fly as a chicken for everyone who has ever thought something was not possible and "chickened" out or felt it wasn't enough to be just one person to create change.
It starts with one person!
The International Bognor Birdman Compatition is an ideal playful event for playful adults and I have been challenged to take part. I would like to do this in favour of those people who are doing good for us and hope you will help me.
When I worked in IT all those years ago I wore tights with a difference and one pair was orange/red which gave me the name "Kylling" (Chicken) referring to a children's TV programme called "Bamse og Kylling" (Teddy and Chicken), so my intention is to fly off into the sunset dressed as Chicken.
Please share and please donate with the aim to raise funds some awesome organisations (read my story with MS on www.lottemikkelsen.com).
This is set up as a crowdfunding page because fundraisers only raises funds for one charity at a time and I have a few I would like to support including the ones who will be speaking at the non-profit The Playing Human Conference in London on 27-28 September 2018. www.laughteryogaconference.co.uk
Together we make a difference to all the people who work for and who are service users or these organisations.
Thank you for your support.
With love and laughter
