I'm raising funds for the Bible Society and I'd love your support.
I'm fundraising for the Bible Society by challenging myself to ride 800km over seven days. It has been challenging for us to get fit enough to do this. The funds I raise will support Bible Society's Bible-based Literacy project in Pakistan.
We feel so privileged living in Australia and having access to good education and good opportunities. We value the opportunity to challenge ourselves and to help others.
More than half of all Pakistani women are illiterate – 80 per cent in rural areas. The gift of literacy is incredibly valuable because it provides a stronger financial and spiritual foundation for families, and can transform lives. That’s why Bible Society Australia is helping illiterate women by supporting Bible-based literacy classes in rural communities.
For a woman, learning to read means being able to read the Bible for the very first time. Each student will receive her own copy of the New Testament in Urdu.
Will you make a tax-deductible donation today and help us turn on the light of literacy for another 8,000 women this year?
Thanks to all who have so generously supported this cause and for the good wishes for our ride
