My Story

So... I've decided to do my first (possibly last) Half marathon. And here it comes... I'd like to ask you to sponsor me! I occasionally do these runs and I see all these amazing inspiring people who are raising money for good causes as they go - and i figure I should really be doing that too! Rather than just bobbing along and practically killing myself in the process - I may as well be doing it for a good cause! By donating, all money will go to UNHCR, who help refugees who've found themselves in the shittest situations on the planet. There are millions of people who are displaced and have nothing. I figured it was worth doing a small part in alleviating some of that crap. $600 will buy 40 families, synthetic mats so they don't have to sleep on the ground. I think we can manage that, don't you? And if you don't feel too awks, please share my link with friends and family and see if they'd be willing to help too. It's tax deductible. Thanks so much in advance! Love to you all. And Bloody Good luck to me. ps. I don't know why my photo imported sideways and I don't seem to be able to change it.

About my cause: Australia for UNHCR

Emergency Response

Support from donors allows UNHCR to go straight into action.

When violence erupts and disaster strikes, support from donors allows UNHCR to go straight into action. UNHCR is often first in and last out in a refugee crisis, able to have staff and supplies on the ground within 72 hours.
 
Our emergency response mechanisms include contingency planning, mobilising global stockpiles of relief items and the immediate deployment of teams of trained personnel.
 
Ongoing Care

UNHCR aims to improve the quality of life of all people in its care, including the long-term displaced.

This includes providing special protection services for women and children, and ensuring all refugees access to healthcare and safe shelter. UNHCR also coordinates education and livelihood programs to help people develop the skills they need to achieve self-reliance and maintain hope and dignity.
