My sister and some of my friends are taking part in an event called slum survivor from 2nd - 4th of november. They will be living and sleeping in home made slums outside (made from discarded rubbish), eating basic foods (lentils and rice), will only have one pair of clothes to wear for the whole weekend and will not be allowed many personal items (no hairbrush, pillow, blanket, toiletries etc)
It is to raise awareness of how many people have to live each day and to raise money for Soul Action who will distribute it around the world to projects and people working in poor communities.
If you would like to donate any money that would be greatly appreciated just go to: www.justgiving.com/lypp_slum_survivor

So Slum Survivor starts tomorrow so it would be so cool if people could post messages of love and encouragment and I could pass them on. :-D
It's like starting to get really cold in Scotland so it'll be freezing sleeping outside at night.

I've just been down visiting the slums!! They are all freezing but they are all happy and having a great time. But they still have one night to go.
I've taken some photos so I'll try and get them up.

Yeah they had a great time! It was really cold. Cat slept with 3 pairs of socks on!! I think she had 2 t-shirts, a jumper, a fleece and a coat on at night! They were given some hot chocolate to keep them warm.
But when I visited ladt night it was so much fun cause they were all having such a good time and just a good laugh. They did get some bother with drunks but they had security to sort it out but one drunk even put £1 in the collection bucket which was nice!
But they had a collection and over the 2 days they managed to raise £600 and that isn't including all the sponsor money. I think that's amazing.

Thanks for posting that cam - it makes you stop and appreciate the things we take for granted.
