Natasha's Atlantic Dream

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! Hello everyone, Our daughter Natasha is 21 and has quadraplegic athertoid cerebral palsy which affects all her limbs and speech. We are incredibly proud of Natasha, she requires lots of support from different equipment and technology to do things we take for granted, like sitting and standing, talking and writing..,, she needs help 24 hrs a day every day, but despite all her challenges she has an amazing personality, she is such a happy young lady with a love of life, and dreams of adventure! In order to fulfill Natasha's dreams and hopes for the future our family and friends work hard to support and enable her, not just in her everyday life but with her passion for the sea and sailing! Sailing has completely changed Natasha's life....Natasha has been sailing a specially adapted boat for 6 years now, the boat is sailed by mouth using a sip puff system desinged by Natashas Dad Gary. Natasha has sailed all over the UK Ireland and to France, and raised over £60,000 for charities, as she really loves to be usefull and found fundraising is such a great way not just to meet people but also to be able to help others- something that for someone with Natasha's limited physical capabilities is fantastic, . Natasha has not just found a sport she loves and can fully participate and compete in but can use her sport to inspire others and, a career fundraising! In 2019 Natasha is hoping to take on the ultimate challenge and sail across The Atlantic Ocean! The challenge start date is 24th November 2019 and Natasha is due to join the startline of The ARC Transatlantic Race. We have secured a boat, a 46 ft Catamaran, but now we need it to have it specially adapted, we have a long list of jobs and equipment that is required to enable to live and sail the boat which is estimated to cost in excess of £150,000! To date a few companies have said they would help with some materials which is fantastic, but we still have a long list.... So we are looking for help and support.... The boat needs to be ready by the end of April, so Natasha can carry out the necessary training before the Challenge date. We are looking for donations towards the boats conversion and to complete the project.If you would like any further information and to become involved in this project we would greatly appreciate your help. We can be contacted through the website at www.missisle.com This is a toally unique and extremely exciting project, with lots of 1st's.We will be posting updates and blogs for you to follow..... Natasha says 'I will be the first person to sail across the Atlantic by sip-pufftechnology which means I sail by a single straw in my mouth. I want to demonstrate whats possible with great teamwork and I hope many more able and disabled people will be inspired to follow their dreams' Please help Natasha cross the Atlantic Ocean -by making a donation!

Help us save MALDIVE PASSIONS Dive School

Help us save MALDIVE PASSIONS Dive School

Please help us getting through the corona virus crisis !! My name is Marc Pomel, Managing Director of MALDIVES PASSIONS Dive School, on the local island of Maafushi. MALDIVES PASSIONS Pvt, Ltd. has been registered as a company in July 2011, and was the achievement of a dream made 9 years previously by myself & Adham, my Maldivian business partner. This dream was made possible thanks to a new policy from the Maldivian government (back in 2008) promoting a new type of tourism, based on local islands instead of private resort islands. On local islands, you could be in contact with the population, interacting with them, sampling the authentic Maldivian culture and making sure that every single dollar you spent would benefit the locals instead of some big international resort companies.MALDIVES PASSIONS was the 1st dive school to open in Maafushi, the 1st ever local island to embrace local tourism. For almost 9 years, we managed to be ranked #1 attraction by TRIPADVISOR, to be the Award Winner of TRAVEL & HOSPITALITY, and to be the "Learning Experience of the Year" by LTG GLOBAL AWARDS. During this time, we also got deeply involved with the local community, bringing countless unemployed youngsters to diving professional level, conducting regular beach & lagoon clean-ups with school kids & tourists, organizing fundraising for the local school, setting-up numerous marine environment awareness program (with both kids & adults), and creating a coral growing project in Maafushi’s lagoon in conjunction with the Island Council. Unfortunately, all this is now in jeopardy, due to the current pandemic. The international airport was closed from the 19th of March with the whole country fully quarantined, and small business like us left high & dry with no income & no help whatsoever from the government. Furthermore, we had to move to a new place early in February, thus facing significant costs & expenses in the relocating process. All those factors contributed to the fact that ran out of money, so from last April onward, we were not able to pay our staff anymore. We had to temporarily lay off some of them, who returned to their home islands & families already, but 4 of our staffs (with no other place to go) were forced to remain with us in Maafushi. Although we can't give them any salary, we are still trying to bear the cost for their accommodations, food, and the utility bills (water, electricity & internet). Therefore, I am humbly requesting your help to face those expenses until business resume (supposedly on the 1st of November), and until we financially stable enough once more. Here is a breakdown of the incurred costs for your information: * Food cost is 170 USD/person/month for a total of 680 USD* Accommodation discounted rent rate is 550 USD per month* Average monthly water bill is around 330 USD, and electricity is about 260 USD.* Internet fee is 70 USD/month Therefore, we are looking at a grand total of 1890 USD/ month. Please, help us to keep the dream alive, as without you, we will be forced to sell everything & close down MALDIVES PASSIONS permanently. Anything you can spare & give will be very much appreciated, no matter how small your contribution. To show you our gratitude, and as a small gesture of recognition, we will be glad to offer a free fun dive, and an additional 10% discount to any contributor coming to Maafushi. Thank you very much for your help & kind consideration. Warmest Regards.Marc Pomel & team.
