From the 31st January to the 6th February, I will be sleeping on the floor each night to raise money to buy a bed for a family in Ethiopia.
Stand by Me helps provide children around the world with food, healthcare, family support and a life-changing education but many of the children do not have a bed and have to sleep on the floor every night. I have visited some of Stand by Me's projects and seen the difficult conditions the children live in, sleeping on the cold, hard mud floor. I have also witnessed how much joy the gift of a bed can bring to a family.
I'm taking on the "February on the floor" challenge so that a family no longer has to sleep on the floor and instead can sleep in a comfortable bed.
A week of discomfort for me will be completely worth it as I know that a bed will transform a family's life. Please give generously as I would love to give the gift of a bed to as many families as possible.
I can't wait to update you with photos and details of my experience on my instagram page (@_bekahadams) and I will share the photos I receive of the families whose lives have been changed because of your support.
Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for almost 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 understand and meet each of their individual needs from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. We're in this for the long term, until they reach their potential, stand on their own two feet and become who they were created to be.
