Dear Fellow Subscripients,
I am posting to ask if you want to make a donation for a very worthwhile cause;
On the 12th September 2009 I am going on a visit to Malawi, a developing country in Sub-Saharan Africa. Malawi is a former British Colony that gained independence in 1964. Malawi is a stable multi-party democracy which faces many challenges.
Facts & Figures
Malawi has High Infant Mortality and High Maternal Mortality Rates and a Low Life Expectancy
Malawi Infant Mortality Rate: 92 Deaths per 1000 live births ~ UK Infant Mortality rate: 5 Deaths per 1000 live births
Malawi Maternal Mortality Rate: 1120 mothers die every 100,000 live births ~ UK Maternal Mortality Rate: 7 mothers die every 100,000 live births
Malawi Life Expectancy: 43.82 years ~ UK Life Expectancy: 79.01 years
During my time in Malawi I will be visiting local schools and hospitals and I wondered if any of you would be kind enough to make a pledge/donation to be used on gifts for the schools and hospitals.
How to Donate/Pledge:
Personally– give your donation in a sealed envelope to Matty Rose (Year 10 Calder High), Billy Painter (Calder VI) or to Isaac Rose (Greenhead College) by 10th September 2009.
Email – email your personal details and the amount you wish to pledge to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll collect!
Post – post a cheque with the amount you wish to pledge to 2 Hollock Lee, Cragg Road, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, HX7 5RT
Any donations at all would be warmly welcomed!
Thanks in Anticipation,
