People tend to ask for sponsorship for a fixed physical challenge such as a race. This is slightly different. It is a bit more of a personal challenge. Though I can’t be sure, I expect to be cycling upwards of 6000km over the 5 and a half months. I feel that alone, is reason enough to ask for your hard earned cash.
I have chosen Hope & Homes for Children as a charity to donate to for two reasons. Firstly, I believe that childhood is the time of a persons life where help can make the largest positive impact, and this charity is targeting exactly that. Secondly, the charity talk which originally inspired me to undertake this adventure was in aid for Hope & Homes for children.
When you get to the page asking how much you would like to donate, just stop and think for a moment how much further cash can go in helping people in real need, compared to how you would normally spend it on yourself.
