I am raising money to support the children of Hands Across the Water because I believe that all children deserve to build a future full of possibilities, opportunities and dreams - a life of choice, not chance.

Hands Across the Water [Hands] started as a charity in response to the Boxing Day Tsunami. Now we support 350+ children living in 7 homes and projects across Thailand. 

The kids who come to live in a Hands home are there because they have no choice. This is often the result of one of three heartbreaking situations:

  • They have no known family to care for them
  • They have a family member who is known to them, but is unable to care for them
  • They are living in an unsafe environment and have been placed in our care by the police or government

Hands not only provides the life-saving necessities for the kids in our homes, they also support many families in an outreach program to help keep kids out of our homes.

Just as important as filling their bellies with healthy food and providing a safe bed to sleep in, with the support of amazing donors like you, the vision of Hands is to help these kids see the opportunities that lie before them, to see a life of choice.

My hope is that you will make the choice to join me in this experience and help me reach my personal fundraising goal. Please make a donation today to support these children and provide them with a better future. 

Together we can truly make a difference - Donate now!

I'm excitedly preparing for another 'Hand Across the Water' cycling challenge this June with my friend Julie  Anne Ball and our team. We're committed to biking 500 km across Thailand in five days, aiming to gather essential funds for needy children.

This will mark my fourth participation in this meaningful event, and I've already committed to the 2025 ride!

Every contribution we receive helps provide opportunities to children, opportunities we often overlook in our privileged lives. As I train diligently in my free time, I'm gearing up for what promises to be another unforgettable journey.

I'm also planning fundraising events soon, I will invite you
 to join in. 
To add more impact, I pledge to donate $1 for every kilometre I cover in training ( walking or cycling) So far in January, I have done 313 km. Is anyone else willing to match my contribution?  22 weeks until i go !

 Generous supporters donating over $500 will be featured on my training jersey and acknowledged in my social media updates. And you  know how i love  socials  Let's make a difference together!
