Off to Rome – and a huge Thank You!

In just a few hours, I will leave the office and head to Rome, but before I take off I would like to send a huge Thank You into cyberspace for all these generous donations. It has been a wonderful week and I am truly amazed by the kindness of the people around me. Declan and I have been sending each other gazillions of emails per day, sharing news on donations and getting excited that the year 2014 has had a great start for and the children this organisation looks after.

It has also been wonderful for me to see how little things I have done for people – whether it is a few translations I have done for free, or writing a foreword for a book of a friend of mine – have come back with great charitableness for this great cause. I would like to thank you one more time – in Declan’s and my name – for this incredible support.

Now, the only thing I have to do is run the 42.195km across the cobblestones of Rome, which I am sure will be a lot easier now that I am running it for the street kids in Nepal. I will probably not be able to finish it much faster than anticipated (even now I guess there is a bit more pressure on me), however, I will run each and every kilometre for everyone who has given so kindly.

Thank You!
