Survival Week is RISE's biggest fundraising campaign of the year to raise money and awareness for our work with underprivileged children learning to read and write in rural India. It's a simple idea:
1. SIGN UP:
2. SURVIVE:Give up an essential item (it could be your morning coffee, facebook, or even a hot shower!) for the week of 21st-27th November.
3. GET SPONSORED: give more by being sponsored by friends+family, or donate the value of what you are giving up!
4. CELEBRATE: You have taken part in addressing EDUCATION DISADVANTAGE!
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
This is your chance to set a personal challenge - to go without caffeine, sushi, your daily stalk on facebook, even using the internet after work! For many children in rural India where RISE works, your essential is a luxury.
RISE is a small charity, and your donation will result in clear, measurable results on the ground enabling our Yearn to Learn supplementary literacy programme in rural India. With 46% of 10 year olds at least 3 years behind their literacy level, lacking the ability to read or write can prevent generations from realising their dreams and escaping poverty.
JUST £10 WILL PROVIDE A MONTH OF FREE EDUCATION FOR A CHILD IN INDIA.
HOW MUCH DO I PAY?
Pay £10 to sign-up as a Survival Week Participant... that will go directly to providing 1 month of free Yearn to Learn classes for a student in India.
Every £ matters! Go fruther... Get Sponosred by friends and family! Donate even more that £10 to make even MORE difference.
You could donate the value of the item you have given up!?
COFFEE: 1 medium coffee at £3 a day, every day? That's 21!
EATING OUT: Lunch out could be around £5 a day. If it's an expensive meal out, the sky is the limit?!
SNACKING: A chocolate bar or pack of crisps during breaks? A cheeky burger after work? That can easily add up to £15!
SWEARING: You can monetise swear words, every time you find yourself about to swear, that's £1 (yikes!)
TRANSPORTATION: If you're walking or taking your bike to work - you're saving probably around £5 a day, at least!
