Last week I met this incredible man named Andrew.
Andrew, his wife Sonia and 10 year old daughter Tiffany have sold everything they own and started a fund raising charity to help "The Butterfly Children".
If you click the link below it will tell the whole story.
I thought it was such an incredible thing for a family to do, for a family that has no connection to any of these sick children... other than feeling compassion and the need to help them.
Andrew's aim was to raise $1,000,000 to start a research programme to find a cure for this horrific condition.
He is running from Adelaide to Brisbane and I caught up with him in Newcastle.
So far he has raised $110,000, well short of his target.
I am reaching out to all because I feel so strongly in this cause and for this family who have sold everything, I truly believe he needs more support... Particularly from a large business or corporation.
So if you could please help you can go to his
webpage to donate http://www.themilliondollarrun.com.au/
or if you could share this with any of your contacts to see if we can get a really big donation, to help him reach his goal.
I'm sure if you look at the video, showing the distress of the young children with this disease, it will move you just as it has moved Andrew and his family.
Thankyou for listening.
