In 2012, my wife Katherine and I formed a partnership with Hands Across the Water to give at-risk Thai children and their communities a helping hand. To further support this cause I took part in their major annual fundraiser, and rode 800km through Thailand on a bicycle.
After being inspired by this humbling experience, I decided to round up some of my Business Blueprint clients, team members and a few of my family to make a real difference as one community. In 2014, I led a group of 29 people for our first-ever Business Blueprint Charity Bike Ride. We managed to push through sand, mud and gravel roads in 40+ degree heat across Thailand, covering a distance of 500 kilometres in 5 days.
To date, we have now raised over $2 million for Hands Across the Water. This money has gone directly to 350+ children living in 7 homes and projects across Thailand. I'm incredibly proud of what we have achieved. Knowing these children will have access to a high standard of care, a chance at a better education and access to exciting opportunities is the achievement we are most proud of.
If you want to support me on this journey, any amount of donation is greatly appreciated. You can rest assured that 100% of your donation will go straight to the kids and their communities in Thailand with not one cent spent on administration or marketing.
