No To Apathy


Bishop Desmond Tutu is one of the few South African leaders who is strongly condemning the insanity in Zimbabwe. He says that we cannot stand by watching a tragedy unfold without becoming complicit in our apathy. Tutu is the patron of the Zimbabwe Benefit Foundation, which, according to its website, seeks to relieve poverty and sickness and advance education in Zimbabwe.

Now my dear husband likes to ride up mountains in the company of very fit cyclists. This summer he is riding from the Italian Riviera, over some Alps, to Nice. He has dedicated his ride to the ZBF and is seeking donations. If you would like to support his cause, you can read his blog post about it here, or head straight to his Justgiving site here.

Many thanks to anyone who decides to help.

  1. Geez, I’d love to do a ride like that sometime. It is so flat up here…

  2. A worthy cause. I have just been over to the JustGiving site. Sorry my donation is a bit low but we have had a spate of sporty people doing amazing things for very good causes. Still, I hate to let one go by without at least making some small contribution. Good luck to your intrepid hubbie, Charlotte!

  3. How wonderful to do what you love and help out as well. Best of Luck to your hubby, both with the ride and with donations!

  4. Wow – well done hubby, even just for signing up to do this! I will pay the donation site a visit and give it a mention on CookSister too – such a deserving cause.
