Say NO to ANIMAL CRUELTY!

Dear animal ❤️-ers, welcome to my PETA fundraising Money Pot! 1.4 million animals die each year because they are victims of animal testing, including the use of cosmetics and 400K coyotes are killed each year for fur in the U.S alone 🙈 🙉 🙊 ! The number is just astonishing! As you know I feel very strongly about animals and veganism, that's why I've been campaigning for animal rights and working closely with PETA UK charity (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). I decided to launch this campaign because I wanted to get more “hands-on” in the fight against animal cruelty,  especially when it comes to the unethical make-up testing  🐶 🐮 🐭  and using animals for clothing (check out my new video at PETA HQ in the updates section).  My mission is to support the charity and their work in raising awareness about how much suffering goes into animal testing and obraining fur. I believe that no animal should be poisoned or killed for us to wear a pretty lipstick or mascara or a winter jacket. It's really sad knowing about all the atrocious and inhumane experiments and practices that take place everyday and not much is done about it...So here I am campaigning 💪🏻! Please join my fight! It would be amazing if your could make a small donation and help me share this money pot page on your social media (Twitter/Facebook/Instagram) to spread the word! When sharing it please use the hashtag #LWfundraiser to have a chance to WIN one of the lipsticks from my Basic Bitch cruelty-free makeup line! Let's all be a part of something good and stop wearing animal blood on our beautiful lips or bodies! 💄 👄  🙎🏽  Find out more from my YouTube video:  PETA is internationally recognised as one of the leading and most influential animal charities in the world. They focus on campaigning against issues of animal cruelty that include topics such as factory farming, fur farming & animal testing. Any issue that involves animal cruelty is on PETA's radar and you can be rest assured that they will do everything in their power to put a stop to it.  BUT, they need funds to do all this amazing work, funds that don't come from nowhere.  If you are an animal lover, or want to help put a stop to animal suffering, please donate.  * 100% of your donation will go to PETA UK charity* Give however much you want* All payments are secureThanks so much for getting involved and supporting this cause!Lucy Watson

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

Make it Better

Make it Better

Water, health care and sanitation, basic rights that many people live without Rural Health Care Foundation fights every day to make thousands of thoselives better Their beliefs and willingness to make lives better inspires volunteers that jointhem in the most diverse projects But that is not enough Unfortunately, they are facing major difficulties to a point where performingtheir mission is becoming impossible They need an extra hand Let's help Rural Health Care Foundation with small donations With your help, thousands of children will have access to clean water andeducation Can you make it better? YOU CAN!  We started this fundraising campaign because unfortunately Rural Health Care Foundation Lost their car, without a car it is very complicated to host volunteers and to reach the rural villages of Mubende. Without a car, their mission is compromised. My experience with RHCF was inspiring, to see how they face all the adversities with a smile on their faces, to see all the children happy for having clean water or a pit latrine. I believe all volunteers leave Mubende with their heart full of ideas and with motivation to help others. Let's not stop it! Now we are back home and everything is "normal" but RHCF is on the field everyday, struggling to help families... that is their normal. Together, we can make it better... IMPORTANT NOTE - If you are using an American Card make sure your bank is informed that you are making an international deposite. Otherwise, the bank might block it!

School meals for kids in Volos, Greece.

School meals for kids in Volos, Greece.

Welcome to this money pot !When the volunteers at the Solidarity Kitchen heard me describing a young child in my daughter's class who came to school hungry and had nothing to eat all day,, they immediately offered to feed her. Within a very short time, the Solidarity Kitchen's founder Angeliki had visited the school, met with the headteacher and was delivering 25 meals to children in need. This year, the Solidarity Kitchen is providing meals to 60 children in need in Volos schools. What I find most moving about their efforts is Angliki’s dedication to the cause. For example, throughout the summer she slept overnight in her car to set up a stall of hand-knitted and crocheted gifts every morning at a local seaside resort—all to raise money for the children's meals. As a woman in her late sixties, this is no mean task. Additionally, this week I found out that Aggeliki and another volunteer had visited a bazaar in Thessaloniki to raise money for the Solidarity kitchen. Once again, Angliki had slept in her car in order to set up her stall in the morning..The Solidarity Kitchen needs to raise €3,500 to pay for the meals for the 2017 academic school year. While this seems like a lot of money, it will go a long way and be spread among many. As a mother, I would be very grateful for anyone able to help Angeliki, her team of volunteers, and the children of Volos who are in need of daily meals.Take a look at the Solidarity Kitchen's website to get a feel for the work they do.https://kouzinavolos.org/Of course, it's in Greek, but there are lots of photos and videos!! Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secure In Solidarity,Maria McCarthy.

Nick & Mary Ann's Tiree Half-Marathon 2017

Nick & Mary Ann's Tiree Half-Marathon 2017

Welcome to Mary Ann & Nick's Fundraiser! We hope you'll help the Watercolour Music team raise some money in the Tiree Half-Marathon! Picture it. The Celtic Connections festival, January 2017. The Tiree Songbook gig - a big musical love-in for the island my dad grew up on - is a sell-out success. Backstage, Mary Ann, Musical Director for the night, is swept along on a windsurfing wave of feel-good and agrees to run in this year's island Half-Marathon. Thanks, Angus Skipinnish...! Well, the training is well underway (the shoes are the genuine instruments of pain article!), and Mary Ann has enlisted the other half of Watercolour Music - the lovely Nick - to run as a team on April 29th. Rycote the dog is also doing a very fine impression of Burgess Meredith in Rocky mode. So, we'd like to take the opportunity to raise some money for two organisations close to our hearts. The first is Ewen's Room, based in rural Lochaber, and which aims to raise awareness of mental health issues. It's run by Rosie and Malcolm Gillespie in memory of their son, who had schizophrenia, and finally committed suicide in 2008. Ewen tried very hard to deal with his problems on his own, and his parents are now working hard to spread the word that it's OK to be open about mental health. From our own encounters with issues of mental wellbeing, we couldn't agree more, although it's still not an easy thing to do, and we support all their hard work - they are a wee organisation but with a big job to do!   The second is Mary Ann's beloved Inverness Gaelic Choir with whom she's been associated for many years. Their music, love and friendship have been a source of support at the bestest and lowest of times over the years, and this is our way of saying thank you and helping to ensure that they carry on as the great musical team they are, and can continue to push their music in new directions. We would be so grateful for any donation, big or small, to this moneypot which will be divided equally between the two groups once we've made our final tally after the race. We'd love to reach £1000, so all your help is much appreciated.  Click on one of the following links to add to the pot.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureAnd you can follow Mary Ann on Facebook for occasional updates in the lead-up to the race. Thank you!!!

Badagaon - Nepal Disaster Relief

Badagaon - Nepal Disaster Relief

Namaste!On April 25, 2015 11:56am Nepal Standard Time (GMT +5:45), 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal. It killed: 8,617 people and injured 16,808.  It destroyed over 473,000 houses and displaced: 2.8 million. In my village nobody was killed but it left 8 houses totally damaged and 15 houses partially damaged, in its wake. There are 32 houses in the village. The village is in mid-western Nepal, about 300 km and 50km west, respectively, of Kathmandu and the epicenter Barpak, Gorkha.Currently, 50 people reside in the village. Majority of the inhabitants are the old, infirm, men, women and children. There are only 9 able bodied men among the fifty. About 75 people live outside the village – education, employment or simply looking for better life and greener pastures.The government survey team visited the village and provided few packets of noodles and a plastic 12ft x 12ft plastic sheets to the households whose houses had been completely destroyed. Now after 18 months, they have declared that no further help will be extended.In the villages, it is the practice that all houses are built without help of any modern technology or equipment. Everything is cut, dug and carried via manual labour. So it is quite cumbersome, time and energy consuming. Furthermore, it is practically impossible to repair certain part of the damaged houses as these houses have inter-locked walls and do not have pillars or beams. So if a section of the house is pulled down for repairs, the whole house will fall down. So we have decided to leave these damaged houses as they are.As it is not possible for the villagers to individually rebuild, the consensus has been reached that they will build a single house which will be used as the Disaster Relief Centre. It will also be used as meetings, storage, festivals and ceremonial venue. The villagers already possess enough large cooking utensils, plates, glasses, bowls etc. and traditional musical instruments which need to be stored and safeguarded. Besides, first aid kits, medical supplies, blankets, stretchers and non-degradable food grains, oil and salt will also be stored.To accomplish above, minimum of NRs. 1.5 mio (approx. USD 15K) is estimated. The villagers are confident that they can raise NRs. 500k plus provide voluntary labour (number of days for each household not decided yet).The reason we need to help these people is that they are living in constant fear. We all know that it does not need a quake of such magnitude as the last one to destroy their houses. It is the fear factor that we need to mitigate by providing them the psychological buffer that their needs have been taken care of in case of disaster. This would be extremely meaningful to them. Therefore, I sincerely request you all to chip in whatever you can and show “heart”. Your contribution of USD5.00 can employ an un-skilled labour for a day and by USD 100,00, a whole month. Your kind humanitarian gesture is highly appreciated.Should you have any queries please direct them to Shiva Gurung (email: shivapgurung@yahoo.com , cell no. +977-9841845841. with Viber and Whatsapp connection).Thank you. and god bless you.Shiva

SOULAGER BRACHA

SOULAGER BRACHA

Bonjour à tous, c'est l'histoire d'une petit fille Bracha qui a 12 mois aujourd'hui , et qui est née avec un syndrome rarissime qui s'appelle Aicardi.Elle est née avec une seule moitié du cerveau (l'autre partie "rongée" en fin de grossesse).Depuis le jour de sa naissance, sa vie est une véritable épreuve. Elle fait des crises d'épilepsie jusqu'à 100 crises par jour, oui je dis bien 100  crises d'épilepsie par jour. Elle reçoit plusieurs doses de cannabis médicalisées afin de l'aider dans son calvaires et sa souffrance. Je précise que les doses qu'elle reçoit ne sont pas remboursé hélas. Un des autres médicaments, malheureusement, lui a fait perdre la vue. C'est terrible mais c'est vrai! Cette enfant en plus d'être paralysé en grande majorité et en plus presque aveugle Du côté de son corps, toute la partie gauche est paralysé Elle a une hypotonie au niveau du cou et le reste du corps et n'a plus de corps calleux ce qui explique qu'elle ne peut tenir ni sa tête ni son dos seul. Elle a donc besoin d'équipements fait sur mesure spécialement pour elle et qui hélas ne sont pas pris en charge ni par la koupa ni par aucune association. C'est une enfant qui ne dort que très peu car à cause de cette moitié de cerveau rongee et qui est envahi par de l'eau lui provoque comme de l'électricité dans la tête et la fait terriblement souffrir. Aujourd'hui je vous raconte tout cela car elle a un besoin urgent d'équipements pour alléger toute ces souffrances terrifiantes. Elle a besoin d'une chaise adaptée pour la maison, pour pouvoir enfin être assise et sur élevé , une poussette médicalisée adaptée à son corps où elle sera en sécurité et qui lui permettra de sortir et s'aérer et aussi un équipement pour la douche pour pouvoir se laver décemment et en toute sécurité. A part cela elle a besoin de soins médicaux particuliers, méthode MEDEK, pour lequel il n'y a  pas non plus de prise en charge par la koupaholim (300 shekels pour 30 minutes).Bracha en a besoin le plus vite possible car son corps n'est pas en mouvement, ses muscles sont extrêmement faibles et cela fragilise encore plus ses os qui ne peuvent se développer. Malheureusement il n'y a pas de traitement pour Bracha, mais il y a une autre solution: " LA SOULAGER"  dans son combat. Nous avons estimé l'achat de ces 3 équipements vitaux à 7000 euros, sans compter les soins médicaux. Je vous en supplie ne la laissons pas. Cette petite est dans un état que personne ne pourrait imaginer. Si chacun d'entre nous donne 5 euros alors dans quelques heures nous pourrons annoncer à cette maman que grâce à vous tous, son bébé bénéficiera enfin du minimum vital pour continuer la vie qui lui a été destinée mais avec une souffrance physique diminuée. Svp ne restez insensible, ne restez pas sans rien faire. Donnez je vous en supplie même 1 euros mais ne l'oubliez pas. Svp Ne fermer pas ce post sans avoir donné même 1 euros Merci à vous tous. Je voudrai juste rajouter juste une chose kol akavod au parents qui malgré la situation inimaginable, impensable, ils sont là ils lâchent rien et avancent pas à pas

Dans un elan de compassion, l'association "Together Forever" s'est deplace sur les lieux afin d'apporter notre soutien aux populations eplorees. Une fois sur les lieux, nous nous sommes rendu compte qu'ils ne disposent pas de point d'adduction en eau potable. Les femmes et enfants du village ont donc besoin de parcourir plusieurs kilometres pour chercher de l'eau, se mettant de facto a la merci de Boko Haram qui peut soit les tuer ou les enlever.Dans l'optique de participer a la lutte contre cette nebuleuse, l'association "Together Forever" a pense offrir un forage aux populations de cette localite. Après appel d'offre, nous avons retenu LE devis estimé a 4.500.000 frcfa.En faisant un don, on contribue non seulement a donner la vie á ces habitants, mais á sauver aussi la vie de ceux qui en souffrent deja. Plus encore nous participons a la lutte contre Boko HaramFaites un don pour sauver des viesMERCI There is saying that stated: "Water is life".Ldubam, a village in far north of Cameroon, in the district of Mokolo, 6000 people has been attacked by Boko Haram and they killed 30 people. With the ambition to show them our support, the association "Together Forever" went to Ldubam and met people from the village to wipe their tears. Once there, we realised they don't have water in the village. So women and children have to walk a long distance to get water. When they do that, they are exposed to the members of Boko Haram who can either kill them or capture them.The situation has appeal to us and we as "Together Forever" decide to do something as part of our contribution to the fight against Boko Haram. We decided to dig a well in Ldubam.
