Help me to help book-cycle.org raise the funds to send a shipping container of books to children in developing countries.

Hi Everyone and welcome to my fundraising page!

  Those of you who know me will know how much my 3ft long dreadlocks mean to me and after 25 years of having them, how scary it is to cut it all off but I feel the time has come. However, I need some encouragement to take this massive step! Some of you are already familiar with the small but growing charity Book Cycle. If not, then you need to be!

Book Cycle is a charity that collects donated books from a variety of sources and gives them away for a voluntary donation from their shops. The charity is entirely run by unpaid volunteers. Since Book Cycle began, it has grown into something really special with many different schemes and projects happening involving art and creativity, education and tree planting. There are far too many to list here so please visit the fabulous and inspirational website, www.book-cycle.org to find out more and you never know, you may want to get involved yourself.

 One of the ways the funds are spent is to send unwanted educational books to schools and orphanages in developing countries where they are really needed and appreciated. This really makes a difference to the children and the teachers, helping with the advancement of education. However, it is a very expensive procedure, but worth it when you see the joy on the childrens faces.

 This is what I would like your donation for! Please help me raise the funds to send a shipping container of books to a school in a developing country and give me the courage to face the world without my dreadlock security blanket!

 100% of the funds raised will go towards supporting this charity and their next educational book shipment to Ghana, Haircut for Book Cycle!

 Thank you for your donation and taking the time to read this xx
