Peace Direct
Every day, people suffer and lives are destroyed because of violent conflicts. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Peace Direct is an international charity dedicated to stopping wars, one person at a time. In conflict zones around the world, we support local people to stop violence and build long term peace.
We’re the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. And we’re building a future where people and nature thrive together. That’s why we’re passionate about sharing the planet’s resources more sustainably, tackling global climate change and protecting endangered wildlife.

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Please be as generaous as you can for these two wonderful charities, who are changing our world for the better. I'll do my best as I run from Alabama to California and with a bit of good fortune and great support, I'll keep going, following in the footsteps of a certain Forrest Gump

So...looks like I made it! Seeing as I'd got this far, I figure I may as well turn round...just keep on going. Thank you sooooo much for all the donations so far - there isn't a thing that lets me send you an email to thank you properly individually, like I wanted to, so just know as soon as you press donate, I love you to bits, or a bit more if I already loved you. You see what I'm getting at. You're ace.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
