This week, you can help fundraise so a child with learning disabilities can go to school! Taking a cue from my good friends at Flea4Charity, on Saturday, I will be selling unwanted items at Dubai’s night flea market in an attempt to raise money for The Right to Live Association (RTLA). The RTLA is a non-profit organisation which was founded in Egypt to habilitate youngsters with intellectual disabilities and provide them with daily living skills and some basic academic and vocational training. They provide access to care and educate youngsters so that they can live a life of dignity and respect. The Association depends on grants, donations, sponsorships and fund-raising events to support its noble cause. One of the initiatives that the RTLA uses to raise funds is the ‘7 day climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro’ in Tanzania, which I will be embarking on in just over a month.
I’ll be accepting donations all week long and would love to have some volunteers help set up and steer traffic to our stall.
What I’ll be accepting:
Electronics in working condition
Gaming consoles and related games
What I won’t accept (sorry!):
Items with an expiration date (food, medicine, creams, makeup, shampoo, etc.)
Toiletries (brushes, grooming items, etc.)
But if you can’t donate, there are other ways you can help. On Saturday, 21 July, bring your good spirits, coin purses and wallets from 8pm at Trade Centre - Sheikh Saeed Hall 1 inside Dubai Sports World to snap up all sorts of clothing, accessories, home appliances and electronics for a fraction of their original price! All proceeds go to charity. Remember, every little bit counts.

Don’t forget to be awesome!
