12 Months, 12 Charities, NO Alcohol!
I want to do something for the charities that are close to the hearts of the people I care about.
I was never first pick for gym at school, and so running a marathon is not an option.
Instead, I want to challenge myself to go without alcohol for a WHOLE year to raise money for 12 amazing charities - one for every month that I am sober.
I realised that in 2014, there is an occasion each month that I would usually drink alcohol to celebrate. There are a lot of people out there not as lucky as I who don't have reasons to celebrate and so I would like to spend this year helping a selection of charities for causes that have impacted my friends and family.
The charities I will be raising money for are:
- The PSP Association
- Lymphoma Association
- The National Brain Appeal
- Orang-utan Foundation
- Ashgate Hospice
- Macmillan Nurses
- Make A Wish Foundation
- Let us create Cambodia
- Crisis Appeal
Throughout the year I will be collecting donations for these amazing charities and at the end of the year, I will split the total amounts raised by 12 and will donate evenly across all of the charities named above.
I would like to raise some serious money for these great causes and so if you could donate generiously that would be fantastic, and please share with your friends and family.
Lets make a difference in 2014!
