Are you up for a festive fundraising challenge? It’s for warm-hearted fun lovers, no ice cold water involved!
We are asking you to follow baby George Thompson’s example by bobbing on a Christmas hat, donating £2 or more to Children of Watamu Happy House, and posting your picture on Facebook – challenging at least two friends to do the same.
You can donate by TEXT:
*Text HHHC22 £2 to 70070 to donate Children of Watamu . JustTextGiving by Vodafone.
Or, if you are in school, work or a community group, maybe you would like to do a group or family challenge on a chosen day, with all money raised coming to Happy House. Don’t forget to post the piccies. You can payin your donations via the JustGiving link https://www.justgiving.com/childrenofwatamu/Donate/
These are hard times for everyone in Kenya, and many more children are suffering. The Happy House is a safe haven now for 90 children and we are making room to take as many more as will need us.
No child in need will ever be turned away.
A couple of quid (euro or dollars), WILL make a difference. Every penny raised goes directly where it is intended to helping our family.
Your hats can be as creative as you like. Please tag Facebook pictures @HappyHouseKenya when you post your picture so we can all have a laugh.
There are no prizes, but there will be many winners – our children at the Happy House.
Come on folks, bob on a festively festooned fedora, a bauble bobbing boater, a tinselled topper or just a simple Santa hat and have fun.
Spread the word, far and wide, and maybe our Christmas Happy House Hat Challenge will just go viral.
Three month old George is leading the way: " I like it when my mummy and daddy talk to me about Happy House and I like seeing the children on the blog. I want to help so I’m challenging you to put on a festive hat, DONATE and NOMINATE.”
