My story

[p]So, you may know that I love Stand Up Paddle-boarding and have done ever since I first went on a board about two years ago. It definitely took some practice - and courage! - to get to my feet but after a few wobbles - & splashes! - I did it and love the serenity that paddle-boarding can bring.[/p][p]After a couple of years of practice, I am still no expert! More a novice who is often seen messing about on the water rather than taking on serious challenges...until now, of course..![/p][p]Being a member of the Kids for Kids team, who are now celebrating 20 years of standing up for the forgotten children of Darfur who live lives of unimaginable hardship and poverty, it seems only fitting that, together with some supportive SUP-loving friends, I take on a challenge to paddle 20 MILES down the Thames from Goring to Henley-on-Thames.[/p][p]The event will take place on 25th September and should take about 7 hours - if the wind's in the right direction..!![/p][p]I really hope to raise £1000 - that's enough to provide 20 goats to the children and families in desperate need in Darfur - and would so love your support to spur me on!![/p][p]If you also love paddle-boarding and would like to join me for a leg or two of this adventure (at your own risk), please do drop me an email to charlotte@kidsforkids.org.uk. I would so love your support - you can also join me dressed as a goat if you would like..! ;)[/p][p]Thank you so much, every little counts for the children of Darfur.[/p][p]Sending much love & huge thanks, Charlotte xx[/p][p][br][/p][p]If you are wondering 'Why Goats?' - then read on![/p][p]Darfur is one of the most impoverished and forgotten about regions in Africa. Life is an everyday struggle as they bear the brunt of climate change. Droughts, floods, disease are an everyday risk and with crops failing and inflation at a record 350% many families are struggling to feed their families and are surviving on just one meal a day.[/p][p]Kids for Kids provides 5 goats to a family in need, the milk from these amazing animals provides vital protein and other nutrients to keep hunger at bay and turn the health of children around. Mothers can then earn a living by selling any excess - being able to afford healthcare and even to send her children to school![/p][p]Kids for Kids also supports communities through other projects such as the installation of water pumps, construction of kindergartens and training midwives and first-aid workers bringing healthcare and education to many areas of Darfur for the first time.[/p][p]Please support Charlotte & the team as they take on their Challenge20 - and maybe you'll be inspired to hold your own Challenge20?![/p][p]For more information visit: www.kidsforkids.org.uk[/p]
