I hope things are good with you.
I have decided to run in the Ethiopian Great Run on Sunday the 27th of November 2011 in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and I am looking or asking people to join me in this run or walk or if you want to crawl to raise funds for an irish Humanitarian Charity, Self Help Africa who have been working in 9 countries in Africa for the past 28 years. See www.selfhelpafrica.org for further details. We wil be going to Ethiopia for just about a week (23rd of Nov to the 29th of Nov 2011) and we will be visiting some of the Self Help Africa Projects in various parts of Ethiopia to show you how Self Help Africa spends your hard raised funds and also to see how successful these projects are and how your funds are making a huge difference in the lives of so many.
Please look at the attached brochure and application form and if you are not in a position to join me maybe you might send it around to some of your contacts who might be interested. The trip to Ethiopia has a real significance for me as some of the Self Help Africa projects are helping in areas where my 2 daughters Mia and Sophie families are known to have lived so it is with extra special meaning that I want to do this run/walk so that I can help those areas or regions.
Thanks for taking the time to read this e-mail and also for considering the attached application form and hopefully you or your friends might consider joining me and thanks for all your support both now and in the past. we are asking people to raise €3,000 or more with €1,000 covering costs of trip and €2,000 going to the work of Self Help Africa projects in Ethiopia and some other projects in various countries in Africa again see www.selfhelpafrica.org
Talk soon. For ways that you can help or support Self Help Africa go to www.selfhelpafrica.org and if you want to organise a fundraiser yourself in anyway please give me a shout.
