Having just completed Ride to Provide 2020, I have again committed to raising another $10,000 and cycling 800kms in support of this amazing charity in January 2021. This will be my SIXTH ride! 
And this time I have inspired a few other Kiwi riders to join me, including my daughter!

The little girl with me in the photo is Jiw Jiw, whom I sponsor. She is 10 years old, loves dancing and wants to be a teacher when she grows up.

People are asking WHY I keep going back? It is simple!

* I see first-hand where the money goes and the difference it makes to the at-risk children we support across Thailand.
* It is wonderful to get to know these children and see them growing up, happy and healthy, with education, food and medication.
*100% of all funds raised goes directly to the kids. All riders cover their own flights, costs and expenses.
*Every child deserves to live a life of choice.

Hands Across the Water supports 350+ children living in 7 homes and projects across Thailand. The charity started out addressing the needs of kids who didn't have homes or access to food, clothing and medicine. As the kids have grown and matured, the focus has shifted to education and future employment opportunities. Today, access to new and exciting opportunities for the kids is just as important as a loving home and a belly full of healthy food.

Your donation will help provide a high standard of care, a chance at a better education and a future that they never envisioned.

100% of your donation will go straight to the kids and their communities in Thailand with not one cent spent on administration or marketing.

If you would like more information on how to sponsor a child, please get in touch with me. Otherwise, all donations are so gratefully received.
