We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give. – Sir Winston Churchill, British politician (1874-1965)
In 1984 there was a famine in Ethiopia that came to the attention of the world through the BBC news reports of Michael Buerk. Millions were affected by this, but Bob Geldof and Midge Ure took action by creating “Band Aid” and releasing a song, and then bringing the world together for “Live Aid“, raising millions for charity. This was the power of the inspired individual making a difference on a global scale.
At Eltham College, Nabil’s class played a 24 hour football match for charity, and although they had a lot of fun, they also did their little bit in helping those less fortunate than us.
And so, inspired by Bob Geldof, friend Commander Ryan, who has been so selfless in his time and efforts, schoolmate Major Phil Packer who has inspired thousands and raised millions, and last but not least, the students at St. Christopher’s Bahrain, Nabil has been trying to raise money for charity through his expeditions, and more recently through encouraging students to have or create their own “Live Aid” or climbing Mount Everest experiences.
These are the charities that he has raised money for or supported in the past…and hopefully many more will be added in the future!
To those whom much is given, much is expected. – John F. Kennedy, American politician (1917-1963)
