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.

Kitchen for homeless refugees and homeless locals in Thessaloniki, Greece.Our project is well established by now. We expanded our work. Kitchen now cooks 2 hot meals a day and distributes to streets and parks in Thessaloniki and to one of the camps nearby. Our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/dirtybunch/ is the best source of daily updates on our work. We are a small private group and cooperate with several groups in order to make our entire operation possible. Winter in Northern Greece is severe and there are still about 61.000 refugees in Greece. Small volunteer initiatives such as ours are flexible and adapt to daily needs quickly and efficiently. We are doing our best to cook on daily basis and the need is not smaller but bigger every day. Please support us with as much donation as you can afford. We can provide a hot meal for as little as 30 cents. And daily need is for 100-400 people. Food, water, sometimes sweets for kids :) Ok, so much for now. Thanks to everyone, thanks for helping us feed the people.
Thank you for the many offers of charitable donations.The Cherry Foundation is set up to continue Cheran’s work of helping underprivileged, talented pupils to succeed and secondly to sponsor children facing poverty.Your donation would make a big difference to keeping Cheran’s dream alive.Thank you for your support.
Welcome to this money pot !Phil and Carol Howard are doing a fundraising bike ride on behalf of Save the Asian Elephants (STAE). The event is the London to Windsor Cycle Ride on Sunday 3rd September 2017 and we’ll be cycling 55 miles from Richmond (London) to Windsor.We chose this charity after Carol had attended a talk given by the charity’s founder, which was heartbreaking because of the shocking revelations of suffering faced by elephants in captivity in Asia. Baby elephants are treated with unbearable cruelty so that they will perform tricks and give elephant rides to tourists who are completely ignorant of the horrific methods used to “train” these elephants. We decided to fundraise by signing up for the London to Windsor Cycle Ride, but at almost the same time as Carol was registering for the event, Phil’s bike was stolen from a tube station. Since then he has acquired a brand new bike and is now raring to set off on our challenge! We hope that other people will get behind STAE (Save the Asian Elephants) and the amazing work which this non-profit organisation is doing to improve the lives of captive Asian elephants. Please support us on behalf of STAE if you can!

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.

This page is to donate money to Prof. Alex Wood to help some of the poorest people in Cambodia to get better mental health care. The money is planned to be used as part of an ongoing project to improve the treatment of mental health in the region, or to be donated to a hospital which gives good healthcare to the poorest people for free (or at a cost affordable to them).Best value charitable donation - no middle menA key challange with giving to charity is knowing how much actually gets to where it is needed. Alex is able to personally take the money to where it is needed and use or give the money directly to the hospitals. No middle men, no employees, no advertising, none of the normal worries about the efficiency of charities.Our Mental Health ProjectImproving mental health services is a key health challenge for developing countries across South East Asia. Cambodia faces particular challenges following a genocide and series of wars in the 1970s and 1980s. During this period health care and university services were nearly entirely destroyed, including through a particular targeting of medical practitioners and academics for execution during the Pol Pot era. In the last two decades, Cambodia has made impressive efforts to rebuild its health and educations systems, including through the establishment of a basic infrastructure of hospitals, medical education universities, and aspirations to conduct international quality research. This has led to notable improvements in physical health as seen, for example, in arrested and declining HIV rates. However, mental health needs have been nearly entirely neglected, and the Cambodian population is largely without access to even rudimentary psychiatric or psychological treatments in both primary and secondary care, leading to several problems.First, rates of untreated mental illness are very high, with associated suffering and stigmatisation. Globally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that depression alone causes more suffering than that generated by all physical disorders combined. This suffering may be expected to be exceptionally high in Cambodia as almost no one in the older generation will have avoided witnessing or experiencing highly traumatic events, and the younger generation will have been born and parented in the recent aftermath of the trauma.Second, mental health conditions are often miss-diagnosed as physical, leading to inappropriate treatment that both wastes resources and risks harming the patient through unnecessary treatment, which in many cases exacerbates the mental health condition.Third, the treatment of chronic physical health conditions is complicated through a lack of assessment or treatment of co-morbid mental health conditions, resulting in the physical health conditions being more difficult and expensive to treat, as well as causing a considerably worse prognosis for the patient. For example, key challenges of HIV programmes include; (a) missed appointments, (b) patients dropping out of the system, (c) the need to locate patients that have so disengaged, (d) lack of adherence to treatment leading to both the emergence of opportunistic infections and HIV medication failure, (e) the need to use newer, more expensive medication due to first line medication failure, and (f) erratic medication compliance risking the emergence of drug resistance at the population level with international implications. Much of these problems emerge from patient disengagement and non-compliance, a key predictor of which in other countries is untreated simple mental health conditions such as depression. Adding a mental health assessment and treatment protocol may both reduce these problems and lead to a net financial saving for the programme.The implementation of an evidence based mental health programme is not currently possible due to the near total lack of research on how to assess or treat mental health in Cambodia, and there is no current mechanism to disseminate new p

Dear Sir or Madam I take part in Civil March For Aleppo, the March from Berlin to Allepo. March is to draw attention to the endless conflict in Syria. The idea is to draw attention to the inaction of the conflict. I thought, it's an amazing initiative. There are many opportunities to help but giving by marching all our time is something rare. It is is a great opportunity to make people realize that something is wrong. We watch the news on TV like a bombshell, not understanding and not feeling that people there are going through the worst nightmare of theirs life. I came on Dec. 26 at Templehof, the last day of Christmas. At the beginning I came only on the weekends because I was working. In January I decided to quit job go till the end of the March. I join the March in late January. In addition to marching, I support the March as best I can do what is a photography. My pictures were shown repeatedly during meetings in different countries. After the end of March I would like to publish a photo book of March as a group of people who decided to devote their time, quit their jobs and go on a long journey - in the act of pilgrimage to tell the world that we do not agree with indifference and inactionCivil March For Allepo doesn’t cover in full Marching. Mostly we don’t have to pay for accomodation but we have to pay for food. If you would like help me walking please donate Anybody who would like my pictures can get them in gratitude of donation, just writte to me to arrange delivery Pictures with stamp and signed My pictures on Instagram ryszardszpytmanorFacebook Best regardsRyszard Szpytman
Walk 1000 miles in one year? Why not!When Linda and Emma saw the #Walk1000miles challenge, they had the bright idea of using it to raise money for their local animal shelter based in SW France. Some of our other volunteers also thought they might like to join in too. Get fit, enjoy the countryside, walk some dogs, raise money ... it's a win-win!The Refuge de l'Angoumois is one of the largest shelters in France, accepting over 1000 animals a year. It exists only through the support of local community funding and donations. Having had one of the community funds cut for the foreseeable future to the tune of 25000€ a year, the budget is tighter than ever and depends more than ever on donations. Many times, money cannot help. It doesn't clean up dog poo very well. Its interest as a cat toy lasts only seconds. However, it can help fund staff, buy animal food and pay for veterinary care, the three biggest expenditures at the shelter. As the national austerity budget threatens to drag on for many more years to come, we need your help and your money to ensure our animals get the best care we can offer.

L'association "Les Tinamours" à été créée en novembre 2016 , elle contribue au sauvetage de chiens abandonnés, maltraités ou errants des dom-tom et en France , plus particulièrement sur l'île de la Réunion. La présidente Mme Garin-Davet Irène a donc investi dans une structure pour l'accueil des 27 petits protégés (sur ses fonds propres) , cependant l'hiver arrive et,avec,ces températures négatives. C'est pourquoi nous demandons votre aide afin de pouvoir construire des boxs intérieurs afin que les chiens et chiots des "Tinamours" passent l'hiver dans de bonnes conditions. Notre projet est,dans un premier temps,de faire quatre boxs de 25m2 ; il nous faut donc beaucoup de matériel. Avec les sauvetages la trésorerie n'est plus suffisante nous espérons donc avec cette cagnotte recevoir vos dons qui nous permettrons de réaliser notre projet. Merci de votre contribution.

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: email@example.com , cell no. +977-9841845841. with Viber and Whatsapp connection).Thank you. and god bless you.Shiva

Mobilisez vous pour ST MARTIN (Translation below)Bonjour à tous, Suite au passage de l'ouragan IRMA le 6 Septembre, St Martin et St Barth ont été ravagées à 95%. Je vous passe les détails car les témoignages et images passent en boucle depuis quelques jours. En effet, depuis le 6 Septembre les habitants n’ont plus rien pour subsister… La situation est chaotique. Le ravitaillement en eau potable et nourriture se fait lentement, la grande majorité de l’ile est sans eau, sans électricité ni connexion téléphonique ou internet. J’ai donc décidé de partir la semaine prochaine vers St Martin, afin d’aller aider famille, amis et la population à se reconstruire. J’ai crée cette cagnotte pour ne pas revenir les mains vides. La nourriture et l’eau étant en train de revenir progressivement je me concentre sur du matériels: trousses de secours, produits pour bébé, antiseptiques, produits antimoustique, moustiquaires et autres équipements selon les retours que j’aurai d’ici quelques jours. Je resterai sans doute 1 mois. Si j’ai le temps, et une fois la situation revenue à peu près à la normale, j’essayerai également de mobiliser du monde afin de nettoyer la mer et le littoral qui sont envahis d’encombrements de toutes sortes (L'environnement reste une préaucupation majeure! D'autant plus que l'économie de l'île repose sur le tourisme...). Beaucoup d'entre vous et je vous en remercie, m'ont demandé des nouvelles et voulaient savoir comment aider St Martin, c'est pourquoi je vous propose de contribuer à ce porte monnaie collectif. Si chacun s'y met, une contribution même MINIME fera beaucoup Surtout faites passer... Margot----------- Hi everyone, Last week, St Martin island have been devastated by hurricane Irma. The damages are huge and people lost everything. I decided to go to St Martin as soon as possible to help rebuilding and distribute supplies that people need. Life conditions on the island are very hard and basic, that's why I can't go on there with empty hands... Food and drinking water are now available on the island, but still in small quantities...Your contribution will help buying supplies such as first aid kit, antiseptic, babies products, mosquito repelent, moskito nets and other items according to requests. I will stay 1 month and if I have enough time I will also try to get people mobilize in order to clean coastal areas ( The environment is still my concern, especially since the economy of the island is based on tourism). Many of you sent messages of support and asked how you could help, that's why I created this money pot. Even a very small contribution would be great. Share... Thank you. Margot

Welcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you! The juvenile black storks have left home. Where are they now? The Eagle Club of Estonia has ten years experience of streaming Black Storks' nest life online (since 2007). An ever-increasing fan club has grown during that time and every year new people join the ranks of observers. Special forums about the webcams are established, where people can share their observations, photos and videos. You may be, or may become a member of this community.Black Storks breed as far from human settlements as possible, therefore, watching them directly without a webcam is almost impossible. People who watch during the months of egg-lay, incubation, brooding, off-spring hatching, growing and finally fledging - they dream of following these juveniles after the nest life, when the chicks start to live their independent lives. It is possible to install small transmitters on the almost grown-up chicks while they are still in the nest. This gives information about their movements after fledging, during their first migration to the south, and further.But, as in nature it is, not all juveniles are strong and clever and lucky enough to survive. This is a rule in nature - stronger individuals may produce their offspring but we never know who is who, in the nest.Therefore, observers need to be ready for bad news as well as good. Nevertheless, our beloved "kids" may not be the winners in natural selectionEverybody is able to follow Black Storks' (named Karl and Kati) nest life next season - since the beginning of April 2018 in Karula National Park, Estonia, (via http://www.looduskalender.ee/n/en) whether or not you want to support the current funding drive! To see about the breeding season 2017, you can visit forum site http://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=878The Eagle Club of Estonia has an ever-increasing fan club for its nest cameras. It is possible to use the same tracker method for different species of juveniles leaving our webcam nests in Estonia. Much depends on the funding capacity. Nowadays there are safe tracking devices developed for majority of bigger bird species. Many young black storks perish on their first migration. If only we had a way to track them, that would give us the information about where and why they perish. Sometimes, starvation is the cause. Sometimes, collision with power lines, or they are prey to a predator. Knowing what the dangers are will help to protect them in the future. Thank you for helping to protect them.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
L’association Ça roule pour Lulu a vu le jour en novembre 2016 à Saint-Saturnin-du-Bois en Charente-Maritime. L’objectif est de lever des fonds afin d’améliorer le quotidien de Lucas, un petit garçon handicapé de 6 ans.Lucas, surnommé affectueusement Lulu par ses proches, est un petit garçon pas comme les autres. Il est né grand prématuré à seulement 28 semaines. Il pesait 1,2 kg et mesurait 37 cm. Cette grande prématurité a provoqué des lésions cérébrales qui ont touché la zone de psychomotricité et a entraîné une hémiplégie droite. Mais les soucis de Lucas ne se sont pas arrêtés là. Quelques jours après sa naissance, les médecins lui ont diagnostiqué une maladie génétique rénale rare, un diabète insipide néphrogénique.Depuis Lucas a bien grandi et ses besoins également. Il faut notamment penser à aménager sa maison pour qu’il puisse circuler avec son fauteuil roulant. En projet, l’extension de sa chambre avec une douche et un w.-c. adapté à son handicap. Il faudra aussi rendre accessible les abords de la maison et adapter un véhicule à Lucas. Ces travaux sont estimés à 70 000 €, un coût trop élevé pour la famille aux revenus modestes et les aides sont peu nombreuses. Les pouvoirs publics de notre pays ne prévoient aucune aide complémentaire au peu que verse la MDPH (Maison Départementale des Personnes Handicapées). Lucas ne bénéficie plus de son complément à l’allocation d’enfant handicapé de base.C’est pourquoi la famille a décidé de créer l’association afin de lever des fonds pour améliorer le quotidien de Lucas. Une quarantaine d’adhérents s'est déjà mobilisée pour Lucas. De nombreuses manifestations sont à venir (soirée zumba, journée handisport, soirée couscous, randonné gourmande semi-nocturne, course pédestre...) pour augmenter la cagnotte.Merci à vous, qui avez fait un don ou qui avez donné de votre temps pour améliorer la vie de Lucas.Pour en savoir plus sur l'association, l'histoire de Lucas, ou encore sur le planning de nos prochaines manifestations, rendez-vous sur notre site Internet http://caroulepourlulu.e-monsite.com/ ou sur notre page Facebook "Ça roule pour Lulu".
Welcome to Kiara & Ben's Help for NAAAS money pot!Thank you very much for visiting out money pot page. As you know, the biggest gift to us on our wedding day is your attendance at the celebration of our marriage. However, we would greatly appreciate a donation to NAAAS - Núcleo de Apoio a Animais Abandonados de Sintra. This is a small charity local to Sintra, where the wedding will take place, and that works to protect and re-home abandoned pets in the region. NAAAS is always in constant need for help and support. The money they receive goes directly to caring for the animals and providing a safe and clean space for them to live in and recover (e.g. food, veternary expenses, water bills, maintenance, etc.) Additionally, NAAAS are currently working on building a new facility, with new kennels and other equipment needed to ensure the animals are housed safely. NAAAS work extremely hard to raise money through organising as many events as possible with the little team they have, and participating in fundraising and awareness days in Lisbon. However, with over 200 dogs, they need every help they can get. Now that we approach the summer months, and people go away on holiday, NAAAS face the busiest time of the year when abandonment of dogs is at its highest... This cause is very close to our hearts and we would appreciate any help you could give to help NAAAS support and care for our furry friends!
