Yes, it's almost that time!
Purple Cake Day is on it's way and it's time to think about going PURPLE!!
Last year you all did an amazing job celebrating and raising money in all sorts of creative ways to make a real
difference in the lives of children in Haiti, Nepal
This year, let's do it again!
Which countries are we supporting this year?
We thought about this a lot. And we talked to the projects we helped last year in Haiti, Nepal
. And we decided the best way to help children get the education they need to change their lives is to KEEP supporting them.
These projects are really great projects. We believe in them. And we know there is direct benefit going to children in need. So by sustaining our support to the same projects in 2014, we are investing in long-term change for the children in these countries - giving them the chance to create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
Can I find out more about the projects?
YES! From now until 7 March we will be putting the spotlight on our three partner projects
. We'll have photos and videos and stories from the children about the challenges they face, what their daily lives are like, as well as the positive progress being made by these inspirational projects. Check out our WEBSITE
and stay glued to our FACEBOOK
