To everyone who doesn't know me I'm Psy's sister and I thought this would be a good place to come to ask for a bit of help as I have done on iGTA5.com
Basically while I was in Kenya last month I visited a Maasai village that had absolutely nothing except houses made of cow poo and a couple of goats. The children had to walk for hours all by themselves to get to school, in the baking hot sun and with the dangers of wild animals such as lions and elephants just wandering around.
I'm trying to raise enough money to build and kit out a nursery in the village that will benefit the whole community and provide both girls and boys with an education, as the Maasai culture is that boys are educated but do nothing whereas the girls cannot go to school as they need to collect water, build houses, cook, look after the children etc.
There are two ways you can help me.
1) Register here with every email address you have. Yes you have to sign up which is annoying, but it literally takes 30 seconds and you can cancel your account after you've voted. The Co-Operative Group in England are holding a charity competition and which ever charity gets the most votes gets £5,000 to help fund their project, it's as simple as that. It's free to vote and as I've said it literally takes seconds but could make a huge huge difference. The current winning charity has 410 votes which really isn't a lot to beat if everyone could register from a few accounts and get friends, family, their girlfriends etc to do it too.
2) During lent if you've given something up please donate the 50p you would normally spend on chocolate or crisps so that we can give these children their nursery as soon as possible, and also ask your family and friends. If you gave £5 all it would mean is you went without one drink on a night out. If you gave £10 it would mean giving up a take away for one week, but it would change the lives of the people in the village forever.
I know normally when you give to charity you don't know where the money is going or what it is being used for, but 100% of the money raised will be going directly to the village to build this nursery and there will be a visable difference as they have nothing at all now, but hopefully within a few months or a year they will have a solid brick nursery complete with furniture and equipment.
Every single penny would be greatly appreciated so please give anything you can, even if it is just a bit of loose change.
There's more information about the village and the project on my Just Giving page.
Please help me spread the word around your work places, schools, colleges and universities.
