he’s 7 years old, and the wee guy is a brilliant young chap. He signed on to the “just giving” donation site, and wrote the following:
My name is Charlie Simpson, I want to do a Sponsored Bike Ride for Haiti because there was a big earthquake and loads of people have lost their lives. I want to make some money to buy food, water and tents for everyone in Haiti. I am going to cycle around South Park as many times as possible…. (at least 10 laps, I hope!). Please can you sponsor me and all your money will go to UNICEF who are collecting for Haiti. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH! Charlie.
He hoped to raise £500, and so far he has managed to get £151, 892.45! No mean feat for a 7 year old. If you havent given already to the Haiti relief efforts, then head on over to Charlie’s Just Giving page and make a donation, and leave an encouraging note for the kid – he’s done extremely well.
