Celebrities and Charity: The Price of Philanthropy

Sophie Bradley | Posted 12.04.2013 | Home
Sophie Bradley

Damned if they do, damned if they don't. For the last seven years I have worked with celebrities, their agents, publicists (and in some cases their mums) to coordinate their support of charitable projects. And while no-one invites condemnation like a wealthy celebrity who does nothing for charity, those who do contribute open themselves up to a whole other raft of criticism. The big difference is once you're famous, you'll be judged. Every move a celebrity makes is up for scrutiny, including the issues that concern them; their politics; their faith; and the charities they choose to support.

How Sport Relief Cash Is Changing Lives in Zambia

Millions of women in the UK earn a living by running their own business. But for women living in Zambia's overcrowded and filthy slums it's almost impossible to earn enough to feed their families, let alone start a business. Thankfully, a project called the People's Process On Housing and Poverty in Zambia (PPHPZ), which is supported by money raised through Sport Relief, is giving some of the country's poorest families the chance to change their futures.

How Sport Relief Is Saving and Changing Lives

As I listened to the 400 pupils at Kasasa Primary and Junior school on the outskirts of the Ugandan capital Kampala sing their Sanitation Anthem and do their morning hand checks, it was obvious that once tangible measures were in place for them to use, these children would be taught the importance of using them and taught it well. A combination of the humble toilet and access to clean water made possible by people taking part in Sport Relief and the UK government's decision to back them has the power to bring about long term change that can educate and empower the most vulnerable.

I’ve Seen for Myself How Money Raised by Sport Relief Is Saving Lives

Sitting beside a woman in Bangladesh, watching the tears roll down her cheeks, I searched for some words of comfort. But none came. This bereaved mother, Hosna, was bravely recalling the day that her 11-year-old son, Emamul drowned in front of her very eyes. He was just playing beside a calm and still river bank when he fell in. He had no idea how to swim so, within minutes, he was gone. It goes without saying that Hosna's story is devastating. No mother should have to face the death of their child. But what I found most difficult to comprehend is that she's just one of 50 grieving mums who lose a child in this way every single day across Bangladesh alone.

Sport Relief - No One Really Likes Hospitals Do They?

Aston Merrygold | Posted 22.05.2012 | Home

I mean they can be fine to look at and the people who work in them are often fantastic, but they are by definition tough places to be. Mutago Hospital in the Ugandan capital of Kampala is a case in point. A network of covered walkways connect the different wards and straight away you get the sense that this is a clean and friendly place which, for the most part, feels like a hospital back home in the UK. Until, that is, you go into the children's ward.

My Week of Hell for Sport Relief

Being asked to do a challenge for Sport Relief is like being asked to be the god parent to an ugly baby. Despite knowing you will forever have a picture of an ugly baby hanging on your wall in case your godchild's parents come to your house, it is very difficult to say no. How hard can it be anyway? You just smile by the font at the church at the christening, buy the child something silver and post a card once a year with an increasing amount of money in it. As for the picture, you just hang it in the room in your house you visit the least, although from experience hanging it in the shed always causes upset...
