Today I received my official authorisation letter to fundraise on behalf of the charity Irish Premature Babies for the Climb for Prem babies 2012. The funds raised from this trek will go towards providing emergency accommodation for parents who find themselves separated from their infants due to transfer to specialised treatment units. In order to take part in this climb I have to raise €5000.
So far this is how I plan to do it:
I would like to make this blog worth some corporate sponsorship. I’ll keep posting on it with updates of how the fundraising is going. My thoughts on the fundraising, photos of events, info on the climb itself etc. I’ll try to keep it interesting. Please check it regularly and share it around. Then I can approach some companies with the stats. The Twitter hashtag is #kilimanjenny
You can use the donate button to the right or donate money directly on my charity page at http://www.mycharity.ie/event/jennyclimbskili
I would really like to see these figures creeping up.
I am hoping to arrange a fundraising night in early February. For this I still need some bands and musicians to give their time and talent, a venue, some more spot prizes and of course guests. If you can help with any of these please let me know and if not just come along on the night, it will be fun and I already have some great spot prizes lined up.
If you would like any further information or wish to offer any help, goods or suggestions please email me at jennyfoxe[at]gmail[dot]com
Thanks so much for your support,
