Well I have finally gone bonkers and anyone who knows me personally knows what a determined tenacious person I am . On September 27th 2008 I am partaking in a Computer Aid International Event across Madagascar. So what is this amazing event.
I am taking part in the computer aid Madagascar Cycle Challenge in September 2008 to raise money for Computer Aid International (http://www.computer-aid.org/madagascar.htm) and would really appreciate your support. For those of you that have already contributed – THANKYOU – to those who have been meaning too, here’s how you can help 🙂
I have agreed to cycle, with 14 Premier Field Engineers of Microsoft from the entire EMEA region, 420km in only 4 days across Madagascar, one of the most ecologically rich and unique countries on the planet, whilst helping Computer Aid International deliver vital IT education to communities in real need. All the money donated by you will help us to provide professionally refurbished PCs to schools throughout the developing world – where IT skills are now just as important to school-leavers as they are here in Europe. We will visit a school in Madagascar and see at first hand the very real and positive impact of IT education on these disadvantaged children.
By completing the challenge I aim to have personally raised enough money to provide an entire 10-machine computer lab to a school in need – and with it IT education to 1,000 children who would otherwise be denied this opportunity.
I cannot do this alone, I NEED YOUR HELP NOW in form of an online, secure donation – however large or small – EVERYTHING you donate will go directly to the computer-aid charity involved, and the children who need it most. Plus also Microsoft in the U.K. will match your donation.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP – follow the link at the bottom of this email and make a donation, we each have a huge target to hit before September, so EVERY donation counts towards the final group total.
