My Story

There are 68.5 million displaced people around the world today. There are more refugees in the world today than at any other time in history.

I'm going to run* the City2Surf for the first time and I'm taking the opportunity to fundraise for UNHCR, an organisation that coordinates emergecy response, helps refuges re-build their lives, and supports prevention of displacement in the first place.

Any donation of $30 or more, I will send a postcard from Sri Lanka**. Any donation of $100 or more, I will send a postcard from an undisclosed exotic location within 18 months.

I can offer to send postcards, but here are some of the life-saving things UNHCR will spend your donation on:

  • $35 sinks a well
  • $98 supplies vaccinations to seven refugee children
  • $145 can provides a family with a winter survival kit
  • $259 provides 6 unaccompanied refugee children with emergency rescue kits,
  • $480 provides an all-weather tent for a family of five, sheltering them from the elements

Please help UNHCR by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button.


*or walk depending on how training goes.
**For those living in Sri Lanka, I will send the postcard from Australia.
