Hello family and friends,

This February, during half term, we are spending Monday to Friday night sleeping on the floor to raise money to buy a bed for a family in Ethiopia. There are families who spend every night sleeping on the cold, hard floor so we're doing the "February on the floor" challenge so that they no longer have to do that, and instead can sleep in a comfy bed.

A week of sleeping on the floors of our bedrooms will be completely worth it because we know that a bed will help to transform a family's life. Please can you sponsor us as a team – it doesn’t have to be loads. We would both love to give the gift of a bed to as many families as possible.

We have never raised money for charity before and really want to do something to help poor children who are not as lucky as us.

We will make sure Mummy and Daddy update you with photos and details of our experience and we will also share the photos we will receive of the families whose lives have been changed because of your support.

Thank you very much,

Love from Edward and George

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.
