I got an email from Matt at the Ration Challenge team on Monday and it seemed only fair to share it with you. Between us we managed to raise the astonishing figure of £2,251, this includes the donations of some lovely people who had been unable to donate during the week but kept good on their promise to donate when they could. Thank you all so much.
To quote directly from the email -
It’s been just over a month since we, along with many of you, finished the challenge, and thinking back, we continue to be humbled and inspired by everything you have achieved.
Over the past few months, you have shown the power of compassion and kindness, and together, you have raised more than £400,000 which will provide emergency food, healthcare and life-saving support to people who need it most. THANK YOU.
We are truly humbled by this community - by your passion and your dedication and by all the ways you supported one another. We have been inspired by your stories - the reasons you took the challenge and the learnings you are taking away from it. And we are grateful for your incredible fundraising efforts and achievements. We hope this video reminds you of the amazing experience we shared together.
And here is the video for you to watch too, as you were the lovely lot that supported me so well during my Ration Challenge Week.
We did it together.
I hope by now your body has fully recovered from what you put it through in order to help shine a light on this situation.
And you only ate like this for a week: I continue to think about the refugees who have nothing but these rations for months, if not longer.
Thank YOU - for sharing the news, but more importantly for helping us all to share our resources to bless others.ReplyDelete

My heart goes out to you and to everyone else who did this challenge.
The video was very moving.
My blood boils at those who attempt, through thought and deed, to make the lives of refugees even harder than it already is.
Very well done.
