MY STORY

Greetings good people

In order to ensure that thousands of people in the UK do not go hungry, foodbanks supply destitute and homeless individuals, as well as families living in poverty, with safe and nutritious food throughout the year. Despite the fact that, in this day and age, I wish that foodbanks were not needed, they are still necessary and they still need our hearty support.

In order to help us do our part, I have teamed up with The Balmore Trust and The Trussell Trust Foodbank Network, and I hope that you will join me. A minimum donation of only £3 (€4) will supply a 1kg bag of fairly traded rice to one of the 400 Trussell Trust Foodbanks in the UK. These foodbanks will be supplied with the rice via The Trussell Trust.

The rice itself will be bought direct from hardworking smallholder farmers in Malawi. By buying their rice at a fair price, these farmers can use this money to develop their farms, work their way out of poverty and help to build up the prosperity of their country.

Each time you donate, not only will you be helping these farmers to improve their quality of life, you will also be supporting foodbanks closer to home. It is a perfect, high-impact charitable endeavor which will make a world of difference to the lives of individuals and families, both in Malawi and on your doorstep.

I urge you to do your bit to love your neighbour to reach our target of £10,000 (€12,130). If you were one of the hungry ones, would you not be grateful for such support? With this in mind, let's prove that we are part of a global family who love each other and start buying “ethical rice for foodbanks” now by clicking on the donate button.

If we double the goal by 10 May 2014 which is World Fair Trade Day), I will even donate my hair to the cause of this fundraising endeavour, live online.

If you would like any more information or would like go a step further, Please do not hesitate to email us at erffc@live.co.uk 

Your kindness is honoured. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Your friend
