A Massive Thank You



Yesterday I picked up my phone while I was eating some lunch, beans on toast ... something I won't be eating on the Ration Challenge ... it's funny how every meal makes me think now.  Food is suddenly important!!

Anyway my phone had pinged that I had an email and I opened it expecting the usual Monday morning drivel, but no, not this time.  It was from the Ration Challenge to tell me I had a donation.  Brilliant I thought, and then wow it's £15 ... then I had a closer look. 

 I know I said that I  wouldn't say figures on here but it was for £157 .

It takes me way over my target of being able to feed a whole family or six individual refugees for the next year.  I am a mess as I type this, I don't have any idea how I can possibly thank you enough or  give you your monies worth with pictures of rice, lentils and my moaning drivel when I get hungry, hangry or just plain fed up.

I really don't know what I can say except THANK YOU.

My family, friends and the blogging community of bloggers, followers and readers have all pulled together to make this happen.  The small donations, the large donations, the well wishers and the folk cheering me on already on the side-lines, we are all part of this success together and I thank each and every one of you.

Minutes later it pinged again and there was another email from Eric the  Ration Challenge - 



 
 
 
Hi Sue,

Wow! You’ve done it! You have reached your target.  Thank you for doing so much to bring emergency food, hygiene kits and life-saving support to the people who need it most. And thanks for showing refugees we really are in this together.

    1. It really is isn't it. I'm itching to get started but I want to wait until 13th September which is the official Ration Challenge Week ... it seems such a long time off. You will all be totally bored with reading about it by then!!

  5. Well done Sue, I guess we're all grateful that you're doing something that we can't or don't want to, for whatever reasons. Xx
