Stand By Me

The Chalmers-Davies Family's February on the floor

We are sleeping on the floor every weekend in February to lift a child off the ground and into their first bed

This February, we are spending every Friday and Saturday evening 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 we're taking on the "February on the floor" challenge so that they no longer have to and instead can sleep in a comfortable bed.

Having visited Ethiopia myself in October 2019 I have seen how children are sleeping and in particular our sponsor child, it is a desperate situation for so many of the children. My lasting impression from my visit is that they are still so joyful and happy despite what we would consider the basic needs not being completely met. I know for sure that beds would be a great blessing to every child and their gratitude would be immense. Please help us raise as much as we can so we can get many beds! 

Also if you want to join our family in the ‘February on the Floor’ project - just let me know and I’ll get you signed up, it’s easy and a online page will be set up for you - all you need to do is SHARE 🥰

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

Thank you 

The Chalmers-Davies Family

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.
