I'm kicking goals for good!
This year, I'm participating in Socktober for Mission Month because there are children who need my support. I have learnt about the Deberety Farm in Ethiopia and how it is helping families like Neela and her baby Ajani. I am lucky to have nutritious food, healthcare and education in Australia, so I want to help families in Ethiopia to access these things too - will you support me?
You're all set! Below are the goals in your selected Goal Pack. Work through them at your own pace, setting target dates to achieve them by. Once you've kicked each goal, tick the box and let us know what you did to achieve it, and what you learnt along the way. Your goals will appear on your fundraising page, and your family and friends can see the great work you are doing. They'll be very keen to chip in and support your effort!
