ROMANIAN TRIATHLON SERIES IN SUPPORT OF HOSPICE Casa Sperantei
My name is Paul and I kindly ask you to join me in supporting HOSPICE Casa Sperantei this summer. I will be running, swimming, cycling (and gasping for breath!) to help raise as much money as possible to help improve the lives and bring a smile to those who desperately need it: the patients with incurable illnesses and families cared for by HOSPICE Casa Sperantei.
In return for your support I will complete the full 2015 Romanian Triathlon series (6 separate Triathlon events in Sprint distance) AND will personally match ALL individual donations ONE FOR ONE to reach a target of 3000 Euro.
HOSPICE Casa Sperantei the leading charity in palliative care in Romania and a center of excellence in S-E Europe, has a brand new hospice facility in Bucharest. This year is particularly important to HOSPICE as they have finished the building and now they need our help as they prepare to bring the first patients through the door (starting may this year!) and provide them and their families with much needed support. Your donations will sustaining these free services and develop these services nation wide by providing trainings for medical staff in the districts of Romania that lacks a palliative care provider.
Currently in Bucharest alone there are ~15000 people in need of palliative care.
Shockingly only 1 in 20 people are currently receiving palliative care leaving many people unrelieved of pain and suffering. So help me help them with this push to get the project off to a flying start and finally provide rest bite, hope and joy to those who urgently need it!
Every penny, bani, cent donated will go directly into improving lives. A cause I believe in very much, particularly after having seen this awesome project with my own eyes and knowing over the 3 years I have been in Romania many of the staff, volunteers and the fantastic work they do.
I am pledging that every donation made directly to this triathlon challenge will go direct to HOSPICE AND will be 100% matched by me. So when you donate 10 RON/Pound/EUR/ I will MATCH that donation to get us to 3000 Euro. So your 10 pound becomes 20 pound. If we can beat that target then all the better!
YOUR SUPPORT IS NEEDED and would be gratefully received and will go a long way into providing vital palliative care to people who desperately need it.
