Feed your family for £2 and help support Zambia’s most at-risk children
As we bid farewell to 2016 and look ahead to the new year, many of us are hoping to make positive changes.
To kick start this sentiment, Voucherbox.co.uk has teamed up with Zamcog to present The £2 Challenge: Can you feed you and/or each person in your family for £2 per head per day?
The challenge is simple. We want you to feed you and/or your family on £2 per person for one day, and write about the experience. For each post published about the £2 Challenge, Voucherbox.co.uk will donate £50 to Zamcog to help the charity continue their goal of supporting Zambia’s most at-risk children through food and education.
Once your £2 challenge post has been published, we’d love you to nominate one other blogger you know who might be interested in partaking in the challenge although that’s not compulsory. You can nominate a fellow blogger or writer on Twitter using the hashtag #2poundchallenge.
The challenge will kick off on Monday January 16th until the end of Feb, just when everyone is looking to save some money after Christmas.
It costs £2 to feed, educate and clothe a child in Zambia every day. In an effort to change the way we think about food, Zamcog would like the blogging community to cut down on their food spending and waste for one day.
Voucherbox.co.uk are always looking for a way to give back, and teaming our love of living frugally with this fantastic cause has meant that we are able to support the amazing work that Zamcog do each year.
With the influential blogging community behind us, we really hope that we can raise some real awareness and money to help continue the education and feeding of at-risk children in Zambia.
Julie-Anne Uggla, Founder of Zamcog says “We’re delighted to work with Voucherbox.co.uk to raise awareness to one of the integral aspects of Zamcog’s work. At the Shitima School we not only educate children to improve their lives but also provide basic needs such as food and clean water. Any money raised from this campaign will go directly to funding nourishment at the Shitima School. The blogging community are incredibly influential and with their help we can raise money and awareness for Zamcog and continue to support our children.”
So far we have raised £1900 for Zamcog.
