Please HELP ME!
On Friday, October 6th 2017, I will be sleeping out as part of Action for Children’s Byte Night, several of my team will be joining me.
I am reaching out to my network in the hope that you will kindly sponsor me and support this very worthy charity. I also hope that you will be able to share this with your network too; together let’s make a difference.
Here is a link to my Just Giving Page, all sponsorship money goes directly to Action for Children or you can simply Text “DEDW99” + the donation amount to 70070 to sponsor me today (so if you want to send £2 Text “DEDW99 £2 and if you want to send £10 TEXT “DEDW99 £10””). Please note that the TEXT option is only for the UK.
I sit on the Byte Night Regional Board and recently we held our board meeting at the Headlands School in Penarth where we heard directly from some of the young children whose lives Action for Children are helping to turn around. Their stories were individual, heart breaking and inspirational.
Headlands is a great example of the work that Action for Children do but they do so much more too and you can learn more at https://www.actionforchildren.org.uk/what-we-do/
Byte Night is Action for Children’s biggest annual fundraiser; a national ‘sleep-out’ event. Each year, hundreds of like minded people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then Byte Night has grown to 10 UK locations and over 1200 people slept out in 2016. Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 17 mass participation charity events and is the largest charity sleep-out having raised over £9.6 million since the first event.
This year Byte Night is taking place on Friday 6th October, across 10 locations within the UK.
