A Sponsored 48-Hour Fast! Help us

It has been a while, but for the first time in ages I'm using my blog, not to talk about film, but to ask for people's help.  The Raising Hope Foundation are an official, registered, charitable organisation, who have been working very hard to provide orphans of Ghana with many of the things we so easily take for granted.  You can learn about them by checking out the following link, and please do:

My sister Jody and I are taking part in a 48-hour fast with a view to raising a good amount of money in aid of their efforts, specifically those to provide an orphanage in the village of Santrokofi.  This is where our fast comes in; sure it's a drop in the ocean compared to what these children have to deal with on a daily basis, but we think if we can drum up support to be able to give a little something towards it, it will be a good thing.  Please take a look at our charity site, linked below, have a good read about it.  Do note that any donation you choose to make is not listed with your name, so you do not have to feel sheepish about giving little; every little helps.  In any case, we encourage you to share this in whatever way you wish, whether it be on Facebook, Twitter, on your blog, whatever spreads the word.  Most people won't know us, but the kindness of strangers is a great thing.  Please give what you are able to.

Please feel free to comment, or contact me on  You can also see the Facebook Event and perhaps even join in yourself here:

Much thanks.

Daniel of Team Elford.
