Hello everyone! I'm Georgina Heffron and welcome to my fundraising page! I am currently a first year student at UCL, and I'm part of a team that has taken on the challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in August 2018 in order to raise money for Hope for Children...and we would love your help!
The challenge of climbing the world's highest free-standing mountain, at 5,895 metres above sea level, is all to support the brilliant and invaluable charity, Hope for Children. I’m amazed and inspired that such a small yet vital charity can help so many children and families across the world...and with your support has the potential to help even more. They are dedicated to helping the most vulnerable children that slip through the aid of larger charitable organisations. I’m determined to help them by raising awareness of their brilliant work and give them the necessary funding they need to continue doing this!
Every child has the right to a happy, healthy and positive childhood, and most important of all this charity gives these individuals hope. I struggle to fathom such inequality and poor quality of life that a substantial number of individuals around the world have to endure, with little opportunity to improve their situations.
By supporting my Kilimanjaro climb, you will be helping:
- Children in Tanzania build a life away from the streets and supporting them to have a nurturing and caring childhood
- To support girls from marginalised communities in education, health and hygiene
- Empower women in remote villages to attain economic stability for their families
ANY donation, big or small, would be greatly appreciated...every little bit counts! Even sharing this page or the philosophy of Hope for Children, you can have a significant impact. Please stay engaged with this page for fundraising updates/events information, my training progress and my journey on this amazing challenge ahead of me. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support...Georgina x
(As a few people have asked, I thought it would be valuable to mention that all money donated goes directly to the charity Hope For Children, and does not pay for my travel expenses. I pay for my travel to Tanzania and expenses while I am there!)
