I’m often fascinated by the stories of those who’ve helped at an accident, dragged someone from a burning building or jumped into water to save someone who’s drowning. The most common response when they’re being interviewed is that they don’t think of themselves as a hero. They’re only doing they believe anyone would do faced with the same situation.
If you were walking past someone in danger you’d step in and help wouldn’t you? If you knew you could save their life wouldn’t you step up?
You may have never walked past people in developing nations who need someone to step in and save their life … but I have … and I’m hoping you’ll help me save some lives today through Compassion.
Having seen first hand, both in Haiti and Dominican Republic, how effective Compassion’s work is, I am determined to do what I can to help. That’s why from the 10th to the 12th of February I’ll once again be taking part in the 25000 Spins Great Ocean Road Challenge.
I’ll be riding 290 kilometres and battling some serious hills over three days and I need your support. By sponsoring my efforts on the challenge you’ll be releasing children from poverty. You’ll be giving children a real chance at life. Please visit my fundraising page and make a contribution. Maybe you can afford to sponsor me for a dollar a kilometre, maybe 50 cents a kilometre, or perhaps you’d just like to donate $10, $20, $50 or any other amount. My overall target is $2500 so I have a long way to go.
Please help me save some lives. Please make your donation, large or small, and then share this post in as many ways as you can so that more people will get on board and more lives will be saved. And whether you feel like it or not, I reckon that would make you a hero.
