Getting Surplus Food to People That Need It

Getting Surplus Food to People That Need It

Hello, everyone & welcome to this money pot!A couple of months ago our class at Ursuline High School Wimbledon began working with a great organisation called First Give.  We learnt all about the critical work of charities and how they support the sick, disabled, poor and socially excluded in our communities. As a class, we looked at many charities and decided to focus our support on Plan Zheroes.  Plan Zheroes is a charity that connects food businesses with organisations that can take their surplus food, rather than waste it, they can use this food to feed those that are at risk of going hungry in our communities.  As a class, we are competing against other classes in our year to best present Plan Zheroes.  To focus on their impact and social benefit.  The other classes will be presenting their chosen charities.  The winner will receive a £1000 cash donation to support their charity and of course, we would like Plan Zheroes to benefit from this.  They are a small upcoming charity and can do a lot with £1000.  We have prepared a presentation, written a song and produced two videos.  In addition, we need to fundraise ourselves and this is where we hope you can help.  So far as a class we have raised £69.91 but have set ourselves a goal of £300. If many of you just contribute just a little we will achieve our goal and help Plan Zheroes to:* fund a new vehicle, more cool bags, more fridges and recruit more volunteers.....then they can help more charities and more needy people.Please, can you spare a pound or two?  Enjoy this video. and this one. Thank you  Anna, Maddie, Grace, Isabella, Caitlin and Soraia from Class 8 Ursula at Ursuline High School

Sophie is going to Walkit! 10k London for CCUK 2018

Sophie is going to Walkit! 10k London for CCUK 2018

It's that time of year again where I and thousands of others work tirelessly to raise extra awareness and funds for the amazing charity Crohn's and Colitis UK by participating in the Walkit 10k event in London on Saturday 9th June 2018.Why am I doing this?Simple, I have Crohn's disease and to put it bluntly, there is no cure. What is Crohn's disease?Crohn's is an auto immune, inflammatory bowel disease.  Crohn’s Disease causes inflammation of the digestive system or gut. Crohn’s can affect any part of the gut, though the most common area affected  is the end of the ileum or the colon.The areas of inflammation are often patchy with sections of normal gut in between.  As well as affecting the lining of the bowel, Crohn’s may also go deeper into the bowel wall. It’s one of the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The other is Ulcerative Colitis.Crohn’s is a chronic condition. This means that it is ongoing and life-long. Symptoms include:Abdominal pain and diarrhoeaTiredness and fatigueFeeling generally unwell or feverishMouth ulcersLoss of appetite and weight lossAnaemia It can also cause problems such as mouth ulcers, blisters and ulcers on the skin, and painful red swellings, usually on the legs, inflammation of the eyes, thinner and weaker bones, liver inflammation and blood clots (including deep vein thrombosis). Crohn's affects 115,000 people in the UK alone. Crohn's and Colitis UK are an incredible charity who work endlessly trying to find medications to improve the quality of life and longer remission for those affected, with the long term goal being finding a cure to end this once and for all. Last year my story went global and I received incredible responses world wide, spurring me on to continue fighting this battle,if you would like to take a read here's the link; https://www.facebook.com/getyourbellyout/posts/750131645197097 Last year with thanks to Crohn's, I was admitted to hospital the day before the Walkit event so was unable to participate.This year, standing stronger and surrounded by loved ones, I'll be walking proudly and with thanks to my friends, family and of course my incredible IBD Nurse Jude and not forgetting my Dietitian Bryony for pulling me through and getting me back on top. Life is very unpredictable with Crohn's, I rely on alot of medication which all come with their own nasty side effects and alongside those, Crohn's has very kindly led me to arthritis too.So for me, a 10k walk is my mount everest climb, achieveing this will be hard, but I'm determined not to be defined by this illness. Thank you for taking the time to read this and in advance I'd like to thank any sponsors and shares of this page to raise both vital awareness and funds =)

Fundraising to Battle Cancer!

Fundraising to Battle Cancer!

Dear Cancer, We are four, forty something year old women. In our chosen sport, we are called Masters.... In our peer groups, we are called friends, mums, or the mad dog lady. We met only last year, two pairs who quickly discovered we were actually meant to be a foursome. And then a plan formed. You see, we are at an age where we have watched friends battle you, seen loved ones die at your hand.  We have checked our breasts, had them squashed in a machine to ensure you aren't living in our body.   We go for smears, we take the vitamins, we try not to be one of the unlucky ones. We cry when friends are diagnosed, and we shout at the injustice of the condition. And we burpee, and we lift weights, and we pretend to be gymnasts. In October, we are going to do it together, in a team of four, where we will be part of an event designed to battle you. BATTLE CANCER With a combined age of over 170 we will compete against many half our age.  Just because we can. We will train harder than before and compete stronger. Just because we can, And because we want to raise money. Money for a cure, money for research, money to battle cancer! Because we are sick of you in our life. We are splitting the money over several cancer charities close to our hearts.  But all money can be donated via this money pot and then split between Bowel Cancer UK, Weston Park Hospital,  Macmillian and the Willows Foundation. Cancer, we are doing something to try and stop you. Friends and families - please donate - even a pound can help? And Cancer, because we can laugh in the face of adveristy. Because no matter how hard you attack us, we will continue to fight, we pledge that the moment we raise over £650 we will do one of the workouts in Unicorn Leotards. Because we can! Love, Simone, Jo, Jane & Mel. xxx   Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can donate to a good cause* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com?

Hilfe für Jamile

Hilfe für Jamile

Liebe Kollegen, Freunde und alle die uns helfen wollen Jamile zu unterstützen, Jamile  ist vor einigen Jahren von Kolumbien allein mit 2 Kindern nach Deutschland gekommen. Ihr drittes Kind ist in Kolumbien gebliebenK um zu studieren. Jamile musste nun leider ein ein sehr schweres Schicksal erleben: Kolumbien ist das Land der Drogen und Korruption.Ihre 20 jährige Tochter, die in Kolumbien geblieben ist, kam an den falschen Partner ,der mit Drogen in Kontakt geraten ist und nicht bezahlen konnte. Er bekam dadurch massive Probleme mit den Geldeintreibern und verkaufte!!! seine Freundin, die Tochter von JamileJamile bekam einen Anruf von der Polizei aus Kolumbien und reiste sofort dorthin. Eine Woche dauerte es bis sie ihre Tochter gefunden hat.Das kostete nicht nur viel Kraft sondern auch richtig viel Geld.Ohne Geld läuft in Kolumbien gar nichts, keine Polizei, keine Freunde und nicht mal die Familie haben ihr bei der Suche geholfen. Geld ist das einzige Mittel um Informationen sehr teuer zu erkaufen.Auf diversen Wegen, die sich an der Grenze der Legalität befanden, hat sie ihre Tochter gesucht und gefunden. Diese hat eine Woche in der Hölle verbracht. Sie wurde unter Drogen gesetzt, in ein Verlies eingesperrt und täglich verkauft. Gott Sei Dank gab es ein Happy End:Durch den Einsatz ihrer Mama ist sie frei bekommen und der Mann der sie verkaufte sitzt im Gefängnis. Jamile holte ihre Tochter nach Deutschland wo sie medizinisch und psychologisch betreut wird.  Auch das kostet eine Menge GeldFazit:Jamile hat nur 30.000€ Schulden und ist auf Hilfe angewiesen. Es hat sie sehr viel Überwindung gekostet an die Öffentlichkeit zu gehen und über das Passierte zu sprechen. Jamile würde nie von allein nach Hilfe fragen doch wir möchten die Augen nicht vor ihrem Schicksal verschließen und ihr helfen  Vielen Dank
