I'm fundraising for Tearfund
Hi Everyone, I'm riding the Tour of New Zealand to help raise funds for Tearfund and the challenge to help combat human trafficking and exploitation. I get the easy bit, cycling over 500 km's (6 days) through NZ's beautiful and mountainous South Island.
The simple way I look at is that every single person trafficked is somebody's daughter or son. We shouldn't be having to raise money for something like this, it's bad beyond belief, but somebody needs to do something. I invite you to join me in us both trying to do a little (or a lot?) to help.
Human trafficking is an organised criminal activity that deceives and coerces people into "modern" slavery. The vast majority of victims trafficked into sexual exploitation are vulnerable women and girls, robbed of their freedom and dignity.
Beth & I have been involved for almost 20 years in raising funds for Tearfund to fight poverty and injustice. We've seen the work, indeed Beth has been part of the work full time for 15 years. The people are inspiring and the work is amazing.
If it was yours, or my, daughter or son, we'd be desperate for someone to help. Lets help Tearfund and their partners fight this terrible crime by sponsoring me on this challenge and achieving my target of raising $15,000.00
