My wife has started training for a 10km run planned for July 11th in London. She’s raising money for War Child and her target is both modest and ambitious. My job involves no running… I get tired driving 10km! So I opted for the very important and extremely stressful task of PR. In fact I think I’m doing all the work here… This post is therefore a request for donations from you: my dear readers.

The minimum donation is £2 – which is presumably to cover the transaction costs.  Donating online is easy, safe and secure.  It should not take you more than 5 minutes.  All major credit cards are accepted – as well as PayPal.  Please give what you can.  Even tiny donations will help – please don’t hesitate.

Click here for more information, and indeed to make a donation. Good luck, Noreen, and thank you everyone.

My blog is strictly about photography… so for this post I wrote the above and, well, took a photo of it!  I was looking for a trusted website today to send a donation for Haiti.  I was planning to pay around $50, then I thought it would be more fun to involve you.  Yes you!

Until 12pm Kuwait time on Friday, for every comment I get from a unique visitor to this post, I will add a dollar to my original donation.  I post on Facebook and Twitter, so I will be counting the comments, replies and retweets – as well as those below.  I’m optimistic, but I apologise (a little) for also being realistic.  I will pay a maximum of $200 to WFP.  If you know of a better organisation, please let me know.

Thank you for YOUR HELP!
