Completing my last triathlon

I am taking part in the NYC 2012 Triathlon to raise money for the Amani Children's Home in Tanzania.

Dear All

Apologies for the mass email. Clearly my husband's mid-life crisis is catching as I have signed up to do the NYC Triathlon again! I will once more be leaping into the welcoming waters of the Hudson River on 8th July, 2012.

I am taking part in the triathlon to raise money for the Amani Children's Home in Tanzania, for whom I fund-raised when I climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in 2010.

Amani is dedicated to the protection of Tanzania’s most vulnerable population: street children and AIDS orphans. It is estimated that there are 2.5 million orphaned children in Tanzania. The Home is committed to reducing the number of children living on the streets in Tanzania by providing a nurturing place for homeless children to heal, grow, and learn. In addition to providing long-term care, Amani aims to reunite children with their relatives when possible and to equip their families with the tools they need to be self-sustainable. Amani, which means “peace” in Swahili, provides healthy food, education, counseling and medical care for every child who turns to the home for help.

We visited the home on our trip in 2010 and it's an amazing place and a great cause. Amani has no corporate sponsorship and relies soley on individuals to raise money. As much as possible is produced locally, thus providing work within the local community, as well as helping the street children.

Donations, large or small, will be very greatly appreciated and will spur me on as I plunge into the waters on July 8th!

Many, many thanks and lots of love

Amanda
