I'm not sure what overcame us, but we've decided to do a half marathon.

Not any old half marathon, but a hilly old half marathon. Whilst slogging along the scenic paths up and down Beachy Head and the Severn Sisters, we'll be ascending over 2,300ft (700m). Ouch.

It's hard to train for that on Clapham Common.

So we're going to need a little extra motivation to make it happen. And that's where you come in. But wait! WE'RE NOT ASKING FOR YOUR MONEY!
Yes, we're asking you to sponsor us, but no, we're not asking you to give us your spare change: we're asking you to create change.

The DoNation is all about creating a more sustainable world, about protecting the environment on which our livelihoods depend. And the environment needs our action more than it needs our cash.

HOW IT WORKS:
Browse the DoActions on the right and find one (or more) that suits you, then make your pledge(s). Some are really easy, others take a bit more effort.

*My personal recommendation / request would be 'Clean your bills' - low effort, big impact.*

You only pledge to do your chosen action for two months and all the information you need is provided here on The DoNation, making it really easy to complete. You'll receive a few helpful reminders and then at the end of the two months you'll be asked how you got on, and at that point your 'donation' is confirmed.

So please, get doing!

Thank you!
