Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
There are a lot of great charities and a lot are close to my heart but the one closest if BabyBeat, it's aimed at giving the little Mr Men and Little Miss a fighting chance on their journey into the world and when they arrive in the world.
I am running the Liverpool Marathon on 9th October 2011 for The Royal Preston Hosital Maternity Unit charity called Baby Beat.
Now to raise money for sponsorship I am using the slogan Running a Marathon for the price of a Snickers!!" (a lot of the younger ones can even remember Snickers being called Marathon!)
I would ask people to sponsor for:
1. Individual Snicker £0.55p
2. Pack of 3 = £1.35p
3. Multipack £2,09
Obvious if people want more than one they can! It's a one off sponsorship not per mile, it is a way of getting a little from a large amount as I know people already give a lot.
It has generated a lot of pledges as it isnt asking for too much.
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 any amount given whetehr a penny or a pount goes to the Baby Beat Charity.
