50 Miles for Project Build & TCDP  
Hey everyone!

I have a new fund raising project I've been meaning to post here for weeks now, but kept forgetting! 

What I plan to do is to walk 50 miles in one week. That's at least 7 miles a day starting Saturday 2nd October, and ending Friday 8th October. It's an achievable target, and tests my endurance more than one long walk.

The money that I raise will be split between two causes.

Two thirds of the money will go to Project Build, a project run by Caleb's Hope, which aims to send a team out to Atiak in Uganda at the end of this year to:
- Build sustainable homes and rebuild communities for refugee women and children
- Prepare farm land to restore food security and cotton production based on a model of fair trade and sustainability
- Build a much-needed school (the school in Atiak is currently a bench under a tree)

I've been volunteering with Caleb's Hope for over a year now and I really support this project with all my heart.

The other third will be donated to a friend of mine, Shelley Templar, who I have been helping raise funds for her 'The Celebrity Design Project', which she's been working on at college.
Her current goal is to raise funds in order to get her to Vancouver for a photo shoot with some of the celebrities that have signed onto the project. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I'm going to do my best to help get her there!

So, it would mean the world to me, and to many other people involved in both projects, if you could support me in this by donating money to this endeavour!

Every little helps, as they say, and I will be extremely grateful for any money you can spare.

If you can't donate, then please help me by spreading the word!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Awww, that's okay hun! Thanks for even considering it =)

I am xD haha. I forgot you were there!! I had a chat with him at his desk later, it was all good =) It was so worth going up there and having him tell the room about it, even if I was shaking like a leaf lol.

You were very brave. I have never dared to ask a question to any guest...it's so intimidating having to go up in front of so many people!!

I don't blame you! I have no problem talking to the actors themselves, it's talking in front of 300 people that's the daunting thing xD But it was for the good of the charity so, worth it in the end :)
