Sponsor Any Activity

By Aariyan Desai

Please help me raise vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières

We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in our hands to make a difference - Nelson Mandela

Covid-19 and its secondary impacts are causing widespread suffering and disruption, especially in less economically developed countries. As we, in Sydney, emerge from lockdown, people are still reeling from the consequences of the pandemic. In the aim of helping in a meaningful (and hopefully fun) way, I thought I'd set up this page.

By donating to Médecins Sans Frontières via this fundraiser you can sponsor me (and my friend, Angus Maple-Brown, who has agreed to help) to do any reasonable activity you like. It could be anything from cooking dinner for family (as my dad keenly suggested) to tutoring a student in need. Requests and proof of completion will be posted on Instagram, @fundraisermsf (https://www.instagram.com/fundraisermsf/).

What you do next

Either, you can put in a donation now without attaching a message or sponsoring an activity (which would be much appreciated).

Or, and this is the idea behind the fundraiser, you can sponsor us to perform a specific activity via your donation. For example, you could donate $30 and your sponsored activity could be something like jumping into the ocean fully clothed. In this case, we would publish a video of this being done on the linked Instagram account (@fundraisermsf). To indicate what you would like your sponsored activity to be, just add a message to your donation when prompted and we’ll do what you write.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international and independent medical humanitarian organisation delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters, and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance based on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender, or political affiliation.

Médecins Sans Frontières sends medical teams and supplies around the world to provide urgent medical assistance to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people in over 70 countries each year.

Your help will ensure that the field staff can respond when and where they are needed. 

Note, if you donate and there is an issue with your sponsor request, I will contact you to work out an alternative (unless it is an anonymous donation).

Any donations made will be tax-deductible.
