Fundraiser

If you have been following the Massland Facebook page, or reading my blog, you’d know that I was fortunate enough recently to undertake one of the most gruelling mental and physical challenges I’ve ever experienced, the Des Sables Marathon across the Sahara Desert.

It was for an incredibly good cause, and so many people generously donated to help victims of human trafficking.

To make a difference, we partnered with Project Futures to help in the fight to stop sex trafficking and exploitation in Cambodia.

Project Futures work as an Australian anti-human trafficking organisation supporting women and girls who have been victim to this crime recover and lead safe lives.

My promise in this challenge was to match every donation dollar for dollar, which meant we raised over $200,000…an absolutely phenomenal result. A result all the more incredible when you think we achieved exactly the same outcome last year in our Stop the Slavery campaign – another $200,000 to this worthy cause was raised in 2015 as well.

Project Futures recently sent me an Impact Report, highlighting just how much of a difference this money makes to the lives of victims. It was truly humbling to see how these donations contributed to improving the day to day lives of so many people.

Here’s what the money helped to achieve in 2015:

Thank you again to the generous contributors to the Stop the Slavery campaign, and be proud in the knowledge that you have helped so many.

We did it… we’ve smashed the target, we’ve reached over $100,000 in donations to help the victims of human trafficking.  I cannot thank you enough for your generosity… it’s incredible.

After one of the most gruelling physical and mental challenges imaginable, the Des Sables Marathon is over. In temperatures of 47 degrees, climbing massive dunes and running long stretches of vast desert that seemed endless, somehow the adrenaline continued to kick in to get over the finish line.

As you know, I’m putting my hand in my pocket to match every dollar raised… by doubling your donations, this means we’ve already raised over $200,000. What a fantastic team effort.

Massland’s ‘Stop the Slavery’ Campaign supporting Project Futures

Trekking across the Sahara fundraising

The Stop the Slavery challenge has been to support the great work of Project Futures to help in the fight to stop sex trafficking and exploitation in Cambodia. Project Futures work as an Australian anti-human trafficking organisation supporting women and girls who have been victim to this terrible crime. The money raised will help these women and girls recover from their ordeal and help them rebuild their lives.

Even though the Des Sables Marathon has finished, there is still time to donate to this fantastic cause. If you’re able to contribute, please accept my heartfelt thanks. CLICK HERE TO DONATE

Anything is possible. When we started out with a target of $100,000, it seemed daunting, but here we are, so very close. At the same time, 250kms across a desert seemed like a huge challenge, and now it’s been achieved with some blood, sweat and tears along the way.

Yours in success and compassion
