What You Do Matters Bungee For Bulacan 28th September 2013 in aid of VSO Bahaginan.
17 amazing volunteers and the founder of WYDM teamed up to raise money for the Special Parents with Special Children Centre in Hagonoy Philippines - a Special Education (SpEd) school in Bulacan for children with special needs.
We raised £1817.50- absolutely amazing!
Andrea Ama Aboagye bungee jumps for WYDM
"The more outrageous the task, the more I felt I could ask of people to give, and a bungee was no small task! Of course I was nervous, but it wasn't the end of the world people do it day in day out, beside, the cause trumped that feeling.
I sent preliminary requests for donations weekly and then every couple of days in the lead up to the bungee. I hoped I didn't annoy people but I wouldn't have done it any differently as I'm certain my persistence resulted in more donations!
The actual bungee was exhilarating and something I would definitely recommend, and the fact that I got to do it for charity was a blessing. I was very grateful to all those that gave!"
