Come on now, don't be shy

 As the more observant of you will have noticed, there is now an easy way to donate to the Enduro India 2007 trip that I am doing next February.

I need to raise £3850 of which I have donated the first £500. So the balance is £3350 left to get. I will give regular updates on the balance and as all the money has to be in by early December 2006 I hope that this will make getting pledges from people a little simpler.

So if you feel that you want to help me raise some money for this great event, then click on the PayPal Donate button up the top.

The three charities are the following;

WWF-India is the largest organisation engaged in wildlife and nature conservation in the country. Established as a Charitable Trust in 1969, it has an experience of over three decades in the field. With modest beginnings, the organisation was propelled forward by the efforts of its founders and associates who volunteered their time and energy to lend momentum to this movement.

A part of WWF International, the organisation has made its presence felt through a sustained effort not only towards nature and wildlife conservation, but sensitising people by creating awareness through capacity building and enviro-legal activism. A challenging, constructive, science-based organisation, WWF addresses issues like the survival of species and their habitats, climate change and environmental education.

The World Wildlife Fund, get the bikes from the trip and use them for their rangers to stop poaching. Any bikes they don't use are auctioned  and the the proceeds go into the funds.

  

The folks at the Rainbow Trust Children's Charity provides practical and emotional support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. They support 1,000 families each year.

 The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild lands through careful science, international conservation, education, and the management of the world’s largest system of urban wildlife parks. These activities change attitudes toward nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in sustainable interaction on both a local and a global scale. WCS is committed to this work because we believe it essential to the integrity of life on Earth.
