|How Eating Breakfast Can Save Anothers Life
Fancy eating a hearty breakfast to save someone elses life? Thats just what UK charity Feed The Children is asking people to sign up to in their Eat A Breakfast Save A Life appeal. Cafes, restaurants, schools, colleges, businesses and people at home are being asked to get involved by staging breakfast events on or around Tuesday 24th February 2009 to raise money for the charitys life saving projects in developing countries and breakfast clubs in this country.
As charity chief executive officer Brian Main explains, ...Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we are asking people to take time out for just one meal to think about the thousands of children who need our help in this country and abroad. In the week commencing Monday, February 23rd wed like people to run or join a breakfast event that will raise money for Feed The Children.
The charity has a number of ideas that people can use:
You can host a breakfast and invite friends (get items donated and then charge a small fee of say 5 pounds per breakfast).
Restaurants and cafes can donate a small percentage of the price of a special Save A Life Breakfast on the menu to the charity, or have a collection tin on the day and ask for donations to the charity from everyone eating in the restaurant.
If you have regular coffee mornings, get a batch of cakes or breakfast muffins donated or baked, invite your friends along and if everyone pays about 1 pound 50 pence for a cup of tea or coffee and a muffin you can raise money that way.
For more ideas about the Eat a Breakfast, Save a Life Appeal or to take part, call Feed The Children now on 0118 932 0095 for more information.
