Mary Kipling is raising money for CUMBRIA - RUNGWE COMMUNITY LINK

My story

It's coming to that time of year again - parties, presents, then the Sales. We hope you get lots of goodies.

It might just be that you might give one thing a miss, and give the money to Cumbria Rungwe Community Link instead. We'll use the money towards projects in our partner schools in Rungwe, Tanzania. You probably won't miss that one thing, but the kids who benefit from a school project in Rungwe will certainly notice the difference. Past projects have included building classrooms, providing desks in primary schools where the kids sit 5 to a desk, toilet blocks, teacher's houses, piped water supply, and electricity supply. And each project benefits lots of Rungwe children and young people.

Let us know what you're donating instead of - some 'instead of' donations previously include instead of sending Christmas cards to everyone at work, buying a dodgy CD in the sales, yet another top that doesn't get worn, buying fish, the price of tickets to see their home football team loose, the price of a hangover....I wonder what you'll come up with this year. Whatever it is, thank you.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto CUMBRIA - RUNGWE COMMUNITY LINK.
