After reading that Save the Children have launched their first ever campaign to help UK families in poverty, my 8-year-old, Harry, and I had a chat about what we could do to raise some money. I suggested a sponsored something and even though he was planning to break his own trampoline jumping record, we decided on a sponsored read.
To be more specific, a Sponsored Read to Joe (Harry’s 3-year-old brother). Harry will read a book to Joe every day for the rest of September or until he reaches his target of £1,000. I’ll (try to remember to) take a photo every night, to prove he’s actually doing it and both boys will (probably) share their thoughts on the books too. We're going to blog about it (to keep us honest!) here.
The boring bit:
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.
