Yesterday saw #PorridgeSmiles all round as we had one of our most successful World Porridge Days yet as a group. Thanks to all the hungry students who bought our porridge from the stall outside the Fraser Building, we raised more than enough money to feed 5 kids for a whole year with Mary’s Meals! But Porridge Day is just the beginning of Porridge Week – a.k.a. the longest week of the year where we only eat porridge, rice and beans to celebrate the difference that Mary’s Meals make to more than a million children every single day. Thanks to the amazing support of so many generous donors we have already smashed our first target of £500, and it’s only Day 2! With so long to go until the end of our challenge, we’ve decided to change the target to £1000 which would provide a life-changing education and daily meal to more than 80 schoolchildren and with your help, we know we can do it. So thank you so much to everyone who has supported us so far and sorry for all the porridge photos taking over your feeds!
If you want to help us reach the target you can either at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Mary-s-Meals-University-of-Glasgow1 or by texting GUMM50 + amount to 70070. Thanks!
