This February, I am spending the weekend of the 20th - 21st 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 I'm taking on the "February on the floor" challenge so that they no longer have to and instead can sleep in a comfortable bed.
A weekend of discomfort for me will be completely worth it as I know that a bed will transform this family's life. Please give generously as I would love to give the gift of a bed to as many families as possible.
In 2018 my husband and I visited the Bethany Bekoji Stand by Me School as part of a small work party. Amongst other things we helped make and paint bed frames. We saw first hand the excitement that the provision of a bed gave a family. Thank you in advance for supporting me to lift children off the ground and into a warm comfortable bed for the very first time.
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.
