Money for Madagascar

Charity Registration No. 1001420

Story

Once again I have a Christmas food/beer belly to run off.  So I am once again running a Half Marathon, this time in the exotic and enchanting city of Reading.  

I have decided to raise money for this particular charity because it seeks to create step ups, as oppose to handouts to some very poor people.  Poverty leads to people resorting to desperate means to make a living, whether that is deforesting an area to farm or hunt animals for bush meat or live trade.  I have never been to Madagascar, but I hear the animals that live there are some of the most diverse and fascinating in the world.  I hope to have a child one day and I don't really want them to grow up in a world where such animals only exist on the internet, in a book or in the zoo.  I will be happy if the money I raise will help some desperate people lead sustainable livelihoods.


Please give as much or as little as you can spare.  If you want to give later on, don't worry, I will be reposting this repeatedly on Facebook for some time.
