Hi Sam from the Terracotta Warriors in China

Hi Sam!

 Hi Sam from Debbie standing in front of the Terracotta Warriors

I have just come back from two weeks teaching English to children who are the same age as you at a kindergarten in Xi’an. I had a good time and played lots of games with them and learnt a few words of Chinese! While I was there I went to visit the very famous Terracotta Warriors. I saw thousands of ancient statues of men and horses that have been dug up. A whole army was built and then buried to protect an emperor who is in a nearby mausoleum. It was quite a sight!

Give it up

Posted by stuff4sam on May 4, 2007

A fundraising idea – how about giving up something and getting sponsored for it?

I gave up alcohol for 8 weeks and my mate Ken sponsored me £10 to do it. And I did! So that was £10 to add to the fund plus the £10 he got his mate to pay after a bet they had about who could lose the most weight over Christmas (Thanks, Ken!)

You could do the same – no alcohol. Or smoking (the smoking ban is not long away – 1 July).  Or how about giving up cakes or chocolate?

Cakes - you don’t really need them!

It’s a great way to kick start a new regime. You could get sponsored by friends, family and colleagues or simply give the money you save to Sam’s fund. Go on, give it up!
