The lovely and amazing EBO team is on a mission... If they manage to raise more than £3000 towards the TEaM 4 Rwanda Nkombo Nursery fund before the office Christmas party (Thursday December 17th), I have promised to let them shave off ALL my hair!!
"Grade Zero Heroes" (such as my beautiful daughter Matilda last year and also many of the men, women, boys and girls I met in Rwanda as well as some others in my life), live or have lived with little or no hair on their heads due to a serious and challenging personal situation or condition. If we can make meaningful progress towards the ultimate goal of £10k then I will go grade zero in recognition of my heroes.
The money raised will go directly to the construction of a nursery building that will ensure toddlers on the remote island of Nkombo will have a place to go to learn, play and eat, allowing their older siblings to go to school and their parents to go to work. This will have a real and significant impact on people's lives and provide a brighter future for this poverty-stricken corner of Rwanda.
(Rwanda Aid is a small charity but also a very special and immensely effective one; TEaM4Rwanda (i.e. Tim Elena and Matilda for Rwanda) is the name of my family's fundraising to build the classroom in Nkombo.

Please make a donation, no matter how small and share this website with others... Pictures of me with my new look will be made available to all those who do! (Possibly not that great an incentive, I know!) HUGE THANKS for your support - let's make it happen!!!!Tim and the EBO team xxx
