Break a habit, reach a goal

What are your little luxuries? Chocolate, caffeine, clothes shopping? Could you do without them for a day... or the whole month of December?

We're asking people to give it up to raise money for AzuKo. Every £1 you donate will enable vulnerable women in Bangladesh to attend 'build for safety' training. It costs £19 for one woman to join. We're aiming to raise £475 to train 25 women in January 2019.



WHY?

In the devastating floods that affected two-thirds of Bangladesh in August 2017, an estimated 101,683 houses were destroyed and 619,834 partially damaged. 145 people lost their lives. This was the 4th major flood that year. We need to build back better.

Our 'build for safety' workshops offer technologies that are affordable, appropriate and available locally. They give people real choices, and control over their lives and livelihoods.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Challenge yourself to go without something in December. Kick the caffeine, bin the booze, forgo your favourite treat. For one day or the whole month, donate the money you save to AzuKo.

"I'm giving up my weekend cappuccinos in December - a total of £26.50 plus Gift Aid. Who needs caffeine when you can get a kick from supporting such an amazing cause?" (Jo, London)


WHAT SHOULD I GIVE UP?

Here are a few ideas:

- Donate your Secret Santa present

- One less bottle of wine won't hurt

- Spare the spin class, do parkrun instead

- Cut out the caffeine

- Dinner for two planned? Eat in.

- Avoid the underground, commute to work by bicycle
