I am really pleased to say that Save the Children are actively supporting the Pound a Day event. I received a lovely message of support from Abi Robertson of Save the Children UK today, which read:
‘Many thanks for choosing to support Save the Children. With the help of fundraisers like you, we’re able to make a big difference to children around the world, especially in times of crisis, like in Syria and Gaza at the moment. I love that JCI have decided to try and live off £1’s worth of food for a whole week! I think it’s absolutely astounding that £1 a day is what 1.4 billion people worldwide have to live on. Well done to everyone involved in bravely trying to do this for a whole week.’
Abi wants to know how we’re doing and how we’re getting on so feel free to Tweet her with your updates @AbiRobertsonSTC and still use our hashtag #JCIUKpoundaday.
The fact that Save The Children make the time to have personal contact and offer support the event organisers really reiterates what a great organisation this is and makes me even more happy that we chose to work with them.
If you are going to be joining in the event, whether fully or just sacrificing a luxury item, please don’t forget to add your donation on our JustGiving page or JustTexting.
This is a JCI UK first to use Textgiving for a fundraising project!
