AktivKidz Lesotho Project

Welcome to this money pot !The goal of AktivKidz is to get kids active! Some studies predict that our children will live a shorter life than us and that this is due to our inactive lifestyle. The same studies say that should our children live a longer life, their health will be poor again due to inactivity. Nearly 25% of teenagers in Luxembourg are overweight or obese and this is getting worse. We aim to get kids active by creating inclusive, participative and fun sporting events in school, at the weekend and in the holidays. We have kids running a marathon during the school year. We will once again do the family Tri4Life event in 2017. All kids can use this page to collect any onlone sponsorship money from friend and family. As a not for profit organisation, all our profits go to Lesotho in southern Africa where we work in conjunction with Kick4Life. Lesotho is a country that has the second highest prevalance of HIV in the world and over 25 % of kids have lost parents to HIV. Kick4Life is a charity devoted to social change in Lesotho. By using sport (football) they educate kids about HIV and offer free testing, counselling and ongoing support. They also help kids in Lesotho get active through sport.  Click to make a contribution. If you are sponsoring a child taking part in actvities please use their name in any reference. Thanks. * Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!

500 miles PKU

You've heard the one about walking 500 miles, well in 2017 I will be running 500 miles and hopefully more, including the Barcelona marathon in March, to raise funds for The National Society for Phenylketonuria (NSPKU) that help families coping with children diagnosed with PKU.PKU is a rare genetic condition that causes an amino acid called phenylalanine to build up in the body. Our bodies normally break down protein in foods like meat and fish into amino acids, which are the "building blocks" of protein. These amino acids are then used to make our own proteins.Any amino acids that aren't needed are broken down further and removed from the body. People with PKU can't break down the amino acid phenylalanine, which then builds up in the blood and brain. In short it means that people with PKU have to have a very restricted diet with very few "exchanges" of protein. That means no meat, fish, bread, dairy products and a host of other daily food items we take for granted.My nephew Christy (pictured) was diagnosed days after his birth with PKU. Thankfully, he is a happy and healthy boy thanks to the family support network around him that know about and can help him deal with the condition as he grows older.Funds raised through this project will go helping families that aren't so fortunate and aiding research into advancements in how to treat the condition.Thank you so much to anyone who can donate anything. I will be thinking of you on the roads and treadmills for the next 12 months.Kieran

Anna's new wheelchair

Anna's new wheelchair

Welcome to my money pot! I am Anna, I was diagnosed with Friderichs Ataxia when I was 14, a progressively more degenerative illness with symptoms not dissimilar to MND though with slower progression. This slowly took away my mobility and by the time I was 16 I was needing to use a wheelchair every day, however this wheelchair only allowed me to self propel inside and my world got smaller and darker. When I was 21 a charity called Action for Kids considered me a kid and helped me fund an outdoor powered wheelchair; the Alber Adventure. It totally opened up my world and allowed me to go to places that I just couldn't  for at least the previous 5 years, everone else takes an afternoon at a country park for granted. The first holiday after getting the chair was to The Lake District and I can't explain how liberating it was and my world grew and grew. Although the Alber Adventure is a great chair, it has now had 11 years of hard use, it is no longer manufactured and so it has a couple of major faults now that just can't be sorted out. It has served me well, and in that time it has allowed me to volunteer as a Rainbow, Brownie and Guide leader including taking my Guides to Switzerland, taking the Guides on camp, and to Somerset, taking the Brownies on unit holiday and plenty of walks, orienteering, treasure hunts, sports days and wide games in the New Forest and parks. I also volunteered at Scout Eurojam in Essex, on Brownsea Island for the Scout Centenary, a Scout Jamboree in Ireland and hopefully at The World Scout Moot in Iceland this summer. I have done my Duke of Edinburgh and Queens Guide awards and enjoy dog walks pretty much every day, some  in the New Forest some other local areas. I always had an adventurous streak as a child an outdoor powerchair allows me to be who I want to be and desperately don't want to have to let that go. I need to replace the Alber Adventure, however the replacement is going to cost £13.608 as this is how much I have been quoted by All Terrain Wheelchairs (01952 471255 - Quote 1285)I hope to be doing a number of challenges and sponsored events to be actively work for these funds. * Should this be funded be the NHS? - The NHS are only responsible for an everyday chair, not this.* Are you applying to charities? - Yes however I am only eligible to apply to a few charities for grants and the maximum awarded is usually about £2500.* Shouldn't you have just saved for this? 2 years ago Dan and I bought a house. We kept back some savings for an extension to the house to improve the access and for a replacement chair. We were told that we would be eligible for some statuatory help with the building works for access but we were then told we were ineligible so we were forced to spend all our savings on creating access to our home.* Does this site charge fees? - Yes but it is one of the lowest around. 2.9% (for money pots over £2,000) although if you prefer you can donate to me or the wheelchair company directly.

STRAY ANIMALS IN SERBIA NEED YOUR HELP

STRAY ANIMALS IN SERBIA NEED YOUR HELP

We are association of citizens Alfa from Belgrade and we have been taking care of abandoned dogs and cats for many years. We found homes for over 150 animals.We don’t have any means of financing except for good people who are helping us. Unfortunately, there is not enough of them and we find it hard to manage our expenses.At the moment we are raising money to pay for boarding houses for   20  dogs and one pig which costs about 650  euros, without the food. All the dogs in boarding houses were sick, hurt or taken from a shelter in order not to die there. Pig was save from floods in Obrenovac two years ago.Let me sort out some of them.Maki is a dog we found immobile in a ditch near the road. He had a broken spine and a bullet from a blowpipe. He is our miracle because he managed to walk in spite of that condition.We found Flekica (‘Little Stain”) as a puppy with the hard form of demodex (a skin condition).Vuka , Zuca , Brka , Viki , Pegica , Masa , Bleka , Pega , Meda , 3 Puppies , Stefi , Mirko , Crni , Milka , Lara , Flekica , Maki , Zuca2 , Cupko , Gile .We have more animals in foster homes , and we provide food for them.Therefore, we are addressing you with the pleading to help as much as you can. Out work is completely transparent, every dog can be seen and visited. Each of them deserves a chance to live, and we are asking you to help us provide them with that chance.Regarding our future plans, we need the money for sterilization of the dogs, in order to reduce the number of the dogs on the street. We need the money for the food for all the dogs we take care of. We need the money for paying veterinary expenses for the sick and injured dogs.If we had more means we could take care of more dogs and cats from the streets and find them real homes later on. We are very limited by the donations we raise through social networks, which are more than humble,so with your help we can do much more.

Kurshaid Ambulance Fund

Kurshaid Ambulance Fund

Welcome to this money pot !HISTORY1Kurshaid Nawab was born 1st March 1966 in a remote village called Tindrah in Khaniwal District Pakistan.  Her family were poverty stricken and worked on the land they lived on.2Not long after her birth, relatives noticed she had a congenital eye condition which rendered her visually impaired. The condition was quickly spotted as her brother suffers from the same complaint.Her father, wishing the best for them, guided and protected them both as much as possible throughout his life.  Her mother, equally concerned, ensured Kurshaid had a respectable Islamic upbringing for similar reasons.3Kurshaid could not attend school as there was nowhere locally that catered for her special needs.4Kurshaid acknowledges that while she lived with her parents, she was under no obligation to carry out house working tasks.Unsatisfied with this arrangement, Kurshaid proceeded to throw herself in to completing as much housework as she was able to do for her family, partly to keep up with contributions made by other members.  She often recalls the intense anxiety experienced at night after a day’s work, when visiting the outside bathroom with her sisters, as she was unable to go safely independently due to her visual impairment.5During the early 1980’s, Kurshaid’s uncle, my father, visited Tindrah from the UK.  Upon seeing his nephew and niece’s plight, he was emotionally moved such that he made arrangements to try and bring them back with him for possible treatment to improve their quality of life.6BACKGROUND Kurshaid finally came to the UK in 1986 and lived with her uncle, my father and our family which is when I first met her.  She attended Southwark College London, where she learned English and a little braille.  The more she learned, the more she empowered herself.7Since being acquainted with Kurshaid, I have perceived five fundamental characteristics inherent to her personality which preserved her wellbeing, such that at times it appeared that she lived the life of two people.  These characteristics were: Zakat: Generosity, Kurshaid rightly felt we all have a duty to raise money for those less fortunate than ourselves, despite her own plight.  To this end, she supported her own family, often sending clothes money or equipment for those she knew of who had special needs. Additionally, she often prompted us to collect our second hand clothes, shoes and money for UK charities frequently hurrying to get to collection points. Salat: continuing to pray five times a day no matter what, together with an acceptance that god knows best whatever happens in life and that we have little control over events.  She lived by this mantra throughout her life. Gratitude.  Kurshaid was grateful for everything, every day, from when she rose to when she slept.  I believe this too contributed to her overall happiness and is an example to us all. Her mental and physical capacity.  Kurshaid was steadfast in her Islamic beliefs. When faced with adversity, she prayed to Allah for help to either accept or change matters for the best.  Kurshaid was also physically stronger than she appeared. She occasionally surprised us all by moving heavy cumbersome furniture independently when the need arose.These four characteristics when combined, produces a fifth.  This is to care for anyone who were fortunate enough to cross her path.8MOTIVATION TO RAISE FUNDS Kurshaid nawab passed away after four anxious weeks in hospital on Thursday 9 March 2017.  No one properly knows how much money she raised since 1986, as she never counted what she gave.  We do know that it must have been significant.  Kurshaid was very resourceful in completing her objectives and was relentless in this task since being in the UK.She leaves a wonderful twelve year old boy, Khalil and loving husband who now both have to learn to live without her.On 10 March 2017, the day of kurshaid’s Jannaza (funeral), those who attended, was testament to her astonishing personality.  Everyone
