Hi friends, I need your help!

Covid 19 has greatly affected us all. It's been a huge inconvenience for most of us, it's been emotionally difficult for many and life changing for some. While we are all weathering the same storm, we are most definitely not in the same boat. Imagine for a moment that you were not fortunate enough to have been born into a 1st world nation but instead into a 3rd world/developing country. The inconvenience of curbside pick-up replaced with the inability to feed your family that day. The hardship of not being able to leave your home replaced with having no choice but to send your children out to scavenge in garbage for anything that might sell for a few pennies, anything that may help put food on the table that night. The problem of trying to home school and manage work at the same time replaced with the knowledge that all you have achieved in your lifetime is going to be set back to the starting point again, there is no school and there is no work.

The people of Cambodia are suffering beyond what is comprehensible for most of us. In January of 2021 I am taking part in a side by side bicycle ride to raise money for REACH SIEM REAP, a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. I will do all of the work, all of it, I just need you to help me with a donation. No matter how small, it all helps.

If everyone who reads this donates even $10, we will be able to reach my goal of raising $1,000 for this event. Right now, the people of Cambodia do not have much to look forward to and this ride has become the most important thing to many families. Cambodians are nothing if not positive and resilient and the excitement this ride has created is palpable from even several thousand miles away.

With your help, REACH will continue to distribute meals and hygiene provisions to every family each month, with each student to receive: 10kg of rice, 12 eggs, a bar of soap & a tin of fish– costing approximately $10.00.

How far the dollar stretches: A donation of just $10 buys 1 Provision Bag.
A donation of just $20 will provide 18 kg of rice.
A donation of $50 will provide for 5 families.
A donation of $100 will provides for 10 families.
A donation of $150 will ensure REACH can provide ongoing life-skills workshops with provisions.

I understand that not everyone is in a position to contribute but even a "share" can go a long way.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Sponsor, Compete & Raise

Julie is sponsoring an at-risk youth to cycle 200kms in 2 days in Cambodia and is fundraising AUD$1,000 on their behalf. In addition to this, Julie will be competing in the Side by Side challenge, completing 200kms in Nova Scotia whilst our youths cycle in Cambodia to raise money for their community. 

Show your support by helping Julie reach her target, no donation is too small!
