Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Later this year I'm going to cycle from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City to raise money for 5 awesome charities. It will be the longest and most extreme athletic feet I will have ever even attempted. So, you may ask, what's the point?  Why are you, a not-overly-graceful-human going to ride a bicycle for thousands of miles to raise money for charity?  Why in this time, when every newspaper heading seems to hasten the oncoming gloom should we "rage, rage against the dying of [that] light?"

It's easy to get discouraged these days about the state of the world we live in, so I hope you will join me in trying to put a little bit of good back into it.  

It's like that Lily Tomlin quote: "I said 'Somebody should do something about that.' Then I realized I am somebody."  

Together, we can make a profound difference in the lives of children in Vietnam. We can help these great charities to continue their worthy missions. We can change the world in this small way, for the better. So let's do it!

More information about the charities can be found on the following websites:

www.saigonchildren.com
