My story

[p][span=background-color: #ff0000;][lt]span style="color: #000000;"[gt]Thank you  for visiting my page. [/span][span=color: #04bd04;][lt]span style="color: #000000;"[gt]My name is Olivia Maiden and I am going to climb Kilimanjaro (the world's largest freestanding mountain) in August 2015 for two charities close to my heart. See event details (bottom left) for more info on the event.[/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=background-color: #00ffff;][lt]span style="color: #0000ff;"[gt][lt]span style="background-color: #ffff00;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #000000;"[gt][lt]span style="background-color: #ffcc00;"[gt]Ace Africa is a children-based charity that helps rural communities to help themselves out of intense poverty; it's based near Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and is run by a friend of ours,Their aproach is proactive and is founded upon a understanding of local needs and issues. They take a long term view, focusing on delivering effective, sustainable programmes in four key areas: child development; health; farming and economic empowerment. One of the main reasons I love this charity is that they help families help themselves and set up sustainable businesses. Most of their projects take ten to fifteen years.[/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=background-color: #f9c5fd;][lt]span style="color: #000000;"[gt][lt]span style="background-color: #ffff00;"[gt]Helen and Douglas House is a charity very close to my heart because they have helped and supported us. The day my [lt]span style="background-color: #ffff00;"[gt]younger sister, Florence Maiden, was born we were all delighted with our beautiful healthy baby, but then she started getting sick. The doctors originally thought it was nothing but later on they diagnosed her with Leigh's Disease, a mitochondrial disorder.  Helen and Douglas House gave her the best last moments of her life, in the spa room with the jacuzzi, in the art room and many[/span][lt]/span[gt][span=background-color: #ffff00;] other brilliant places. [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=background-color: #f9c5fd;][lt]span style="color: #000000;"[gt][lt]span style="background-color: #00ff00;"[gt]Sadly on the 28th of November 2008, after her first birthday party, she died. Helen and Douglas supported us in many ways. They invited me and my brother George to join the Elephant Club, a club in which you do fun trips with other children who have been through similar problems. I would really like to give back to Helen and Douglas house.[/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: #000000;][lt]span style="background-color: #00ffff;"[gt]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.
