Myla, Blake and I are taking on February on the floor again to help lift kids off the ground and into their first bed.
Last year we did it and the photos of the smiling faces of the children in Ethiopia with their families who were no longer sleeping on the floor made it so worthwhile. You can see some of the photos above if you scroll through the images as well as being able to see some of the circumstances many families currently experience.
We're going to be spending a week sleeping on the floor to raise money to buy beds for families in Ethiopia who spend every night sleeping on the cold, hard floor. A week of discomfort for us will be completely worth it as we know that a bed will transform a family’s life. Please give generously as we would love to give the gift of a bed to as many families as possible.
Please follow our February on the floor journey on Facebook/Instagram from the 1st to the 8th of February as we experience what it’s like to spend a week without a bed. I can’t wait to update you with the photos and details of our experience and I will share the photos when I receive them of the families in Ethiopia 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.
