I am sleeping on the floor for a week to lift a child off the ground and into their first bed

From Saturday 15th to Friday 21st February I am spending a week sleeping on the floor to raise money to buy a bed for a family in Ethiopia. There are families who spend every night sleeping on the cold, hard floor so I'm taking on the February on the floor challenge so that they no longer have to and instead can sleep in a comfortable bed. You can scroll through the pictures at the top of the page to see the reality of the circumstances they are living in.

A week of discomfort for me will be completely worth it as I know that a bed will transform a family's life. Please give generously as I would love to give the gift of a bed to as many families as possible. 

Harry and Emma both want to join in and support these families and will be spending several nights throughout the week sleeping on their bedroom floors… or joining me on various floors around the house!

I'll update you with photos and details of our floor journey during the week.  Once the challenge is complete, I'll also make sure to share the photos I receive of the families in Ethiopia whose lives have been changed because of your support. 

Thank you 


Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for 3,500 kids across the world, from Myanmar to Colombia to Ethiopia. No two are the same, some are orphaned, some abandoned, some abused or living in extreme poverty, so we take care to understand and meet each of their individual needs from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. We're in this for the long term, until they reach their potential, stand on their own two feet and become who they were created to be.
