PHLL90 £5 or PHLL90 £10 to 70070.
Those of you who know me know I'm not going to run a marathon. Ever. If you know me well enough you'll also know I spend vast amounts of money on junk food, coke (the unhealthy kind...), sandwiches, pub lunches and, oddly enough, oranges.
All of which cost more individually than the amount the average person in Africa survives on per day. To celebrate Save the Children Week, I’ll be making a change and living on £1 per day for 10 days, starting on the 22nd April.
I'll be keeping a blog - http://journalistfundraising.wordpress.com/ - so you can keep track of my progress, you'll be able to see the culinary delights I'll be living on, and if I don't end up starving to death, I'll be hounding you to make a donation.
It's probably the only time I'll do something like this, so I'd appreciate it if you help out. You'll be able to unsubscribe to my frequent and multiple updates by making a donation - everybody's a winner. I'll also be putting names into a hat with a grand prize, so those who donate get a chance of winning an unimaginably fabulous prize for their efforts.
