F. Oddone’s fundraising event

Triathlon for Children of Côte d'Ivoire

Closed

What's it about?

Dear all, on Sunday, 26 June 2011, we (Giovanni, Stefano and Francesco) will be trying to swim 1.5 km, bike 40 km and run another 10 km in the Heinerman triathlon event in Darmstadt, Germany (http://www.heinerman.de). Since we are not fully satisfied with just these three legs and would like to add a fourth one and use this opportunity for charity fund raising, so as to have another “good and strong” incentive to make it through those great but oh so painful hours!

Thus, we would like to raise money for a project that is fighting school drop-out in the Yopougon slums, Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire), which is run by the NGO Terres des Hommes. More precisely, donations channeled to the project “Casa del Sole” will be used to buy school equipments for the kids of the slums. We personally know the people in charge of the project on the ground and can vouch for their commitment, competence and integrity. To make things particularly fast, easy and transparent we would kindly ask you to donate via betterplace.org, a website that specializes in being a free platform for precisely this kind of endeavor. Please go to: http://www.betterplace.org/projects/6797-casa-del-sole-terre-des-hommes-costa-davorio

To make a lasting impact we hope to raise as much money as possible, possibly much more than officially required as a minimum goal. The more the merrier! However, we are of course grateful for every amount you can spare. Every euro does matter!

Donations for the project are not tax deductible. To be tax deductible projects have to be registered in Germany. This is a tedious process which is not possible for all project initiators. However, we strongly believe that this project needs our help, too. We therefore hope to get all your sympathy and financial support. We are grateful and thank you very much for your participation: together we can make the world a better place.
