Weʼve raised £40 to send gifts to disadvantaged children through "Operation Christmas Child" - run by Samaritan's Purse.
- Bristol, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 20th September 2017
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.
This October, Lydia and Simon will be running the Bristol 5k Colour Run to raise money to support Operation Christmas Child - run by Samaritan's Purse.
100% of the money raised will be used to buy gifts to put into the boxes (such as toiletries, games and fun things to play with), and cover the cost incurred by Samaritan's Purse to send them around the world.
We are hoping to be able to raise enough money to pack 500 boxes - a tough ask! So please sponsor generously, and we'll maybe throw in some ridiculous tasks:
If we reach £200: we'll run three-legged
If we reach £300: we'll also both wear piratical eye patches
If we reach £500: we'll run it twice (somehow...)
