Fay's February on the floor

I am sleeping on the floor for a week to lift a child off the ground and into their first bed

This is me with my wonderful sponsor child Daniel outside his home in Ethiopia. His house really is a mud hut, but he is one of the lucky ones - he already has a bed! I am sleeping on the floor, from the 18th - 25th, so that Daniel's school friends can also have a bed and blankets. Please support me so that there are more smiles and more warm children every night in Ethiopia.

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. I'll also share the photos I will receive of the families whose lives have been changed because of your support. 

Thank you 


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.

I am sure it’s not as exotic as sleeping on the floor in Nepal but a floor is a floor! Well done
