Jan Rosa Lee, Bridge of Peace Syria board member who lives in the UK and who recently returned from work on the ground in Turkey with Tamer, has come up with a great way to shed pounds and “give them” to Syrian refugee children who urgently need them.
This Lent period , the six weeks leading up to Easter, she is asking everyone to pledge pounds (sterling), dollars, euro, krona etc. to Bridge of Peace Syria for every pound of body weight she loses. Jan calls it, “Getting Slim for Syria” as she engages in a restricted diet and periods of fasting. She reports that some folks are already pledging fixed amounts and others pledging by the number of pounds that she is able to lose. She hopes to lose 10-14 lbs. by Easter.
If you live in the UK please message Jan Rosa Lee on Facebook with your pledge or, donate online here and memo your gift as a “pound for pound” donation. At Easter time we will announce the results! Thank you!
