Spare a penny, please

I am running the Berlin Marathon – my longest run ever – on 30 September, along with family and friends.

I normally find it bloody annoying when people try to raise money for all sorts of wonderful adventures that I would love to do myself, but hey, I am a bloody annoying person, too, so please sponsor me and support a good cause.

Through my research I have developed a pretty good understanding of the dirty world of NGOs. Given the lack of formal accountability structures in place, a lot of them actually do more harm than they do good. However, I believe that Médecins Sans Frontières stands out as a very worthwhile organisation, which I fully support.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: MSF UK will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

Many thanks for your support.
