Mary’s Meals

Mary’s Meals is a global movement that sets up school feeding programmes in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. The charity now feeds more than 1.2 million children every school day and it costs just £13.90/€15.60 /$19.50 to feed a child for a year.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our Mary's Meals JustGiving page.

We have set this page up to allow people to sponsor us on our London to Sydney bike ride, which commences in April 2010. For more information on the ride, please see our website: http://www.londontosydneybybike.wordpress.com.

Mary's Meals is an excellent charity that makes a tremendous difference to the lives of school-age children in some of the poorest parts of the world, simply by providing school meals. Often this meal will be the most substantial meal of the day for these children, and so this incentivizes them to attend school. Importantly, it also encourages parents to send their children to school rather than keeping them at home to work. See the website http://www.marysmeals.org for more information on this wonderful organization.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
