Arya and Shay's February on the Floor

Sleeping on the floor to give children the best start to their day

raised by 19 supporters

This February we are spending a week sleeping on the floor to raise money to give a child the best start to their day. Every child should be able to start their school day with a feeling of dignity, purpose and encouragement. We're taking on the February on the Floor challenge so that we can help a child head off to school with new underwear, in a smart uniform, with a school bag full of educational resources and a full belly to help them concentrate all day on their lessons.

A week of discomfort for us will be completely worth it as we will be able to give a child the best start to their day for a whole year, enabling them to pursue their dreams. Please give generously as we would love to help as many children as possible.

We can't wait to update you with photos and details of our experience and we will also share photos we receive of the children whose lives have been changed because of your support.

Thank you
Arya and Shay

Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then provides the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for over 4,000 kids across the world, from Myanmar to Colombia to Ethiopia. No two are the same, some are orphaned, some abandoned, some abused or living in extreme poverty, so we take care to meet each of their individual needs from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education, enabling them to reach their potential, stand on their own two feet and become who they were created to be.

February on the Floor is a fundraising event designed to make a significant difference to the lives of our amazing Stand by Me children. We ask people to sleep on the floor for a week of their choice in February and raise money to give a child the best start to their day.
