Win a Garmin Forerunner or Vitamix FOR CHARITY!
|July 8, 2011||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Uncategorized|
HEY guys!! I just got back from my music competition, which I won by the way!! So thanks for all the good wishes- it clearly worked! And THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for the feedback on yesterday’s post! Honestly I was kinda iffy about talking about my disordered eating past, but your responses meant so much to me! I will definitely talk about it more in the future, as requested, so THANKS friends!!
“Christian Aid has a vision – an end to poverty – and we believe that vision can become a reality” I believe that too. One thing I really struggle with actually is suffering in the world. I find it hard to comprehend the level of suffering millions of people around the world face on a daily basis, beyond what I can even comprehend. To be honest, I used to try and ignore it. It depressed me, and still does to an extent, that there is so little I can do to help.
What I do now recognise is that although I can’t single-handedly end all poverty and suffering, I can STILL make a difference, and I hope to do that by raising money for this amazing charity.
Firstly, I’ll just dispel this common belief: Christian Aid does NOT just help Christians! It is a faith based organisation that helps EVERYONE, “regardless of religion, ethnicity or nationality.” I swear I’ve been asked about that at least 3 times already!
Christian Aid work on all sorts of projects, from long-term ones such as these…
…to working emergencies like these…

For example, Christian Aid are currently working to help with the severe drought in Africa, where over 10 million people are affected, which to put it in perspective, is pretty much the entire population of Greece.
And the biggest worry in my day is usually whether I have any caramel pudding in my fridge to put on my oatmeal! Just can’t imagine!
Ok, so what am I doing to help? Well in running this half I am hoping to raise over £300 for Christian Aid. My JustGiving page:
And to help me get to this amount, I am doing a HUGE GIVEAWAY!! I basically thought about what would be my DREAM giveaway, and this is it! *This giveaway is sponsored by a generous person I know- not a company*
There is one of TWO items up for grabs, and the winner gets to choose which ONE they want!!
You can EITHER win:
The latest Garmin Forerunner! You can read all about it here, but basically the Garmin Forerunner 610 has a touchscreen unlike the others, and provides accurate distance, pace, GPS position, heart rate¹, calories and many other features. I have the Garmin 305 which I LOVE, but is a lot bigger than this and I find it a bit chunky, so this is perfect!
That is Vitamix Professional Series 500 (details here). It is a crazy good machine that quite a few bloggers have and I want one so badly!!
And YOU can win ONE of these things!! To win:
- (Mandatory) Donate to my JustGiving page at least £2, and leave a comment here saying you’ve done so.
- (Optional) For each extra £2, you get another entry (please leave an EXTRA comment telling me how much). For example, if you donate £10, then leave one comment telling me you donated, and then another comment telling me you donated £10.
- (Optional) You get an extra entry for following me on Twitter and Tweeting about the giveaway, linking back to this post.
The winner will be picked randomly on Tuesday 12th at 9pm GMT. And I will be very jealous of whoever wins!!
GOOD LUCK you guys, and thanks in advance for helping me to raise money to help beat poverty! LOVE YOU ALL <3
