I am sleeping on the floor for a week so that families won't ever have to again

I'm taking on February on the floor to help lift kids off the ground and into their first bed. 

I am going to be spending a week sleeping on the floor to raise money to buy a bed for families in Ethiopia. There are families who spend every night sleeping on the cold, hard floor so I'm taking on the challenge so that they will no longer have to and instead can sleep in a comfortable bed. You can scroll through the pictures at the top of the page to see the reality of the circumstances they are living in. 

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. 

My kids are keen to get involved too so will be joining me on at least one of the nights to play their part in helping support these families.

I'll look forward to sharing my experience with you of what it’s like to spend a week without a bed! I'll also make sure to update you with the photos and details of the families in Ethiopia 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 3,500 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.
