This February, from the 15th - 21st we are spending a week 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 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. 

We can't wait to update you with photos and details of our experience. We will also share the photos we will receive of the families whose lives have been changed because of your support. 

Thank you 

Sam, Caleb, Peter Joe and Joy or Michael (taking turns around work) 

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.
