Can you give me a push?

I need a push. A really big push.

Well maybe not me as much as my fundraising for the 25000 Spins Great Ocean Road Challenge for Compassion. I’m well down on my target and I need anyone who cares about releasing children from poverty to give what they can to boost the total. Will you please be one of those who helps?

Here’s a video that was created at the end of last year’s event which will give you an understanding of what it’s all about.

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. Somewhere in this world is a child who is waiting for you to step up and become a hero by giving them a hand up.
