As many of you will know we spent 3 years living in Nepal and lots of time in numerous countries where children aren't afforded the same opportunities as our own. We have met so many incredible characters that have provided lots of fun and laughter to our lives and at times, despite their challenging circumstances, show a resilience beyond my imagination.
Stand by Me are an incredible organisation and one very close to our hearts. We know that there are still hundreds of children that don't have a bed or the sleeping conditions to get a good nights sleep so this week (14th Feb) myself, Isaac and Ezra will be spending a week sleeping on the floor to raise money to help improve their sleeping conditions and provide them with as many beds as possible.
A week of discomfort for us will be completely worth it as we know that a good night's sleep can transform a family's life. Please give generously as we would love to help as many families as possible.
We can't wait to update you with photos and details of our experience and we will also share photos we receive of the families whose lives have been changed because of your support.
Matt, Isaac & Ezra
Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then provides the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for over 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 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 week of their choice in February and raise money to help provide families with a bed, improve their living conditions and give them a great night's sleep.
