This February I am spending a week(end) sleeping on the floor to raise money to help a child pursue their dreams. There are families who spend every night sleeping on the cold, hard floor, many who wake up unable to provide breakfast for their children and some who are unable to provide a uniform to send their children to school to get a life changing education. That's why I'm taking on the February on the Floor challenge so I can provide these essential resources for these families.
A week of discomfort for me will be completely worth it as I know that a good night's sleep, a full belly and a smart uniform can transform a child's life. Please give as much as you can afford. I would love to help as many families as possible.
I can't wait to update you with photos and details of my experience and I will also share photos I receive of the families whose lives have been changed because of your support.

Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then provides the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for over 3,800 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 weekend or week of their choice in February and raise money to help provide a child with a bed, uniform, breakfast and everything they need to pursue their dreams.
