So excited about our 2018 Dry January Challenge!
Yet again WorldWithoutWine has teamed up with the fabulous Earthchild Project in a fundraising project to provide children in Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill with yoga and life-skills classes.
This is our third year of working together and the generosity of our donors has meant that so far we have been able to sponsor more than 300 children.
Over the past 12 years Earthchild have taught yoga to thousands of children in disadvantaged areas.
Yoga is a powerful and practical tool that supports the physical, mental and emotional development of the child.
Yoga empowers vulnerable children to transform their lives and communities.
Just R250 provides a child with weekly yoga and life-skills classes for a year
This is how it will work:-
In order to participate you will need to resolve to give up alcohol for a 30 day period.
The registration period is open from right now to the end of January so just pick your 30 day window – for example you might decide to be dry from 1-30 January or if you are still on holiday during early January you might prefer to choose 15 January-15 February. You can even register on 31 January and end on 2nd March. Or if you are anxious to get started or just like to be different why not sign up right now and go for a Dry December (!)
Once you have decided on your dates please reflect on how much you would have spent on alcohol during those 30 days and divert that money (or a proportion of it) to Earthchild. Just a couple of bottles of wine comes in at R250 which already covers one child’s yoga classes for a year – how many bottles do you get through in a month? Enough to fund several children’s classes perhaps?
So once you have decided how much you can afford to donate please click HERE and make your donation. Then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the dates of your “Dry January” and I will set up your daily e-mails. BTW for the benefit of our regular donors I have written a whole batch of new Daily Mails for this year!
So lets have a healthy start to 2018 and help (at least) 120 kids have a better 2018!
I look forward to hearing from you!
