Friends. Family. Well-meaning strangers. Ill-meaning strangers who want to see me suffer.In case you didn't already know, I'm currently living in Cambodia and working for a fantastic organization called Friends-International.Friend-International works with marginalized children, youth and their families across Southeast Asia. We help children and youth who live and work on the streets to get back into education, to break away from substance addiction, and to build a better life and future for themselves. Our teams of social workers go out into the community every single day, tropical downpour or blaring sunshine, building trusted relationships and saving young people's lives through a holistic, long-term approach that addresses the whole family and the whole community. Our social workers are the hardest-working and most dedicated people I have ever met and I am truly in awe of them. So in awe that I am willing to run in 34c (93F) heat and humidity to support them. They, and the people in the communities that we work in, are worth it.Here's where you come in. Please, please support me with however much you can afford to give--here are some ideas of what your donation can do.- $5: a backpack for a child to be able to go to school- $25: a school readiness kit for a child, including pens, books, and a school uniform- $50: job-readiness training for 40 young people in recovery from substance abuse- $120: healthcare for one of our vocational training students for a whole year- $250: all the materials that a mother needs to start her own micro-enterprise which can help to feed her familyPlease don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions.

En décembre, je me lance un énorme défi: courir 10 km dans les temples d'Angkor pour une cause qui me tient à coeur - et du coeur il va m'en falloir pour aller jusqu'au bout de mon objectif alors que les 3 km de mon premier entrainement l'ont mis à rude épreuve. Soutenez moi à atteindre les 10 km en finançant une partie de ma course! Mon objectif: 1km = 100 euros et beaucoup de motivation.Mon équipe de choc et moi avons besoin de VOUS pour faire la différence. 100% des fonds levés seront reversés à Friends International pour soutenir leurs programmes de réinsertion, d'accès à l'éducation et à la formation professionnelle à destination des enfants et jeunes défavorisés et marginalisés au Cambodge. Chaque année, Friends supporte plus de 140,000 personnes à faire valoir leurs droits et se construire un  avenir prometteur. Je compte sur votre générosité :)

I'm so excited to be taking part in the Angkor Wat Marathon again this year - running 10km - to raise money for the amazing organization I work for in Cambodia: Friends-International (disclaimer...I definitely was part of the team last year - I just missed the above team photo as I was busy getting a complimentary 5 min foot massage after the run, oops!)More importantly.....Friends supports marginalized children, youth and their families to have better chances at life. Living in the poorest of conditions, they generally don't have access to basic social services, school, health care, housing, employment - and this is where Friends steps in.  Your donation will help Friends to continue supporting over 140,000 people each year to have access to basic services and build a better future.Here's how you can help:- $5: a backpack for a child to go to school- $25: full school kit for a child- $50: job-readiness training for 40 young people- $120: healthcare for a student for a year- $250: all material and support for a mother to start her own micro-enterprise to feed her family I'm so grateful to my wonderful family and friends who supported my fundraising last year - and I'm hoping you don't mind me asking you to support me again this year.  Even $5 is a huge help and I want you to know that 100% of the money raised will go to the life-changing programs run by Friends! Thank you!....now I'd better start training!!! ;)

Vous avez été nombreux à me soutenir l’année dernière et grâce à votre soutien j’ai pu collecter plus de 1000$ qui ont été versés à l’ONG Friends-International pour aider des enfants et des jeunes Cambodgiens dans le besoin (scolarisation, santé, formation professionnelle, aide pour l’emploi et j’en passe). Cette année encore je fais appel à votre générosité! Petit ou gros don, tout compte! Alors je compte sur vous :)

I am buying my first ever pair of running shoes to run the10km at the Angkor Wat Half Marathon in Cambodia and the Bangkok Marathon in Thailand. So, I am challenging myself to run in 34(+) degrees heat and ridiculous humidity to raise money for Friends International. Friends International work with children, youth and families across Southeast Asia. They help to reintegrate children back into education and provide young adults with amazing training to support them in gaining the confidence to kickstart their careers and adult life. Whilst working for Friends I have been fortunate enough to see first hand the incredible work they are doing! Any support that you can offer is very much appreciated and will make my first "proper" run worth every step!! By giving a little, you are definitely going to help a lot in protecting some of the most vulnerable children in Southeast Asia. Here's a little more on the work that Friends do and the impact that you can have! Friends supports marginalised children, youth and their families to have better chances at life and to access newfound opportunities. Many of the people we work with live in exceedingly poor conditions with little to no access to basic services such as, education, housing and health care. This is where Friends steps in, taking a holistic approach to supporting the whole community that surrounds a vulnerable child. Empowering, educating, and supporting communities helps to ensure long term impact and change for the better. Your donation will help to make this a reality for many more children, families, and their communities. What your donation can do:- $5: a backpack for a child to go to school- $25: a school kit for a child- $50: job-readiness training for 40 young people- $120: healthcare for a student for a year- $250: all material and support for a mother to start her own micro-enterprise to feed her familyYou can help to make a difference to children's lives, with you by their side, they can look forward to a brighter future filled with opportunity and stability. Literally every little helps!
