Are you ready to take the #MyHandsandFeet challenge?
Your hands and feet can make a difference
All you have to do is take a picture of your hands or feet (or all both!) and share across your social media networks – you could also use it as your Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram profile picture.
Your hands and feet just as they are is fine, but this is a great opportunity to get creative, particularly for kids – paint your nails, show us your shoes, make hand shadow shapes or wear sparkling gloves – the limit is your imagination.
Then (and this is the important bit!)….
Text HAND43 £5 to 70070 to donate £5
You can donate any amount up to £30 by text – for instance if you wish to donate £20 you would text HAND4320 or HAND43 £20.
Only mobile users with a UK provider can use the text donation service. If you live outside the UK and don’t have a UK mobile provider then please donate via the DONATE button on our website or Facebook pages.
Donations over £30 should be made via the website or via the Donate Now button on our Facebook page.
Here’s examples of how your donations will help:
- £5 will help a person living with leprosy walk in tailor made shoes
- £10 will give them a week of full care support
- £25 ensures a Kindergarten child has a nutritious meal every day for a whole month
- £80 trains a village health worker to recognise the early signs of leprosy and to learn skills in preventing disability.
Please help spread the word
Nominate your social media friends to take up the challenge and post links to our social media pages:
Let’s see if we can fill social media pages with #MyHandsandFeet pictures and in doing so raise money to help buy essential shoes, food and daycare for people affected by leprosy.
Check out the posters below which you can download here in a pdf format to help promote the cause off-line!
Thank you in advance for your support
