Sumatra Jungle Challenge: Introducing Harish Patel
Ladies and gentlemen, may we introduce you to the lovely Harish? Harish is one of the intrepid conservationists who will be taking the Sumatran jungle by the leaves and giving it a jolly good trampling, all to protect orangutans everywhere.
We really like to get to know people who join our volunteering and fundraising endeavours and find out as much about them as possible….and then tell you ALL about them. Harish is no exception folks, so here he is and here are his answers to the 10 questions we ask absolutely everyone….
Apart from your home and car, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever bought?
My Wife’s engagement ring
What’s been the most embarrassing moment of your life?
When I messed up my lines at my wedding
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Everyone living in harmony
If you were invisible for a day, what would be the first thing you’d do?
Annoy my wife
If you had a pound to give to charity, which collection tin would you pop it in?
Body & Soul
When was the last time you cried?
When my sister passed away
Who did you last receive a text from and what did it say?
My wife saying I love you
If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
What is your favourite thing about The Body Shop Foundation?
How they support all our pillars when choosing which charities they will support each year
What one skill or talent do you have that no-one knows about?
A skill I use to have is and still have a little bit is I use to train in Taekwondo
If you think – like we do – that Harish is a bit of a star, then give him a helping hand and sponsor him on his quest! You can find his fundraising page here at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=HarishPatel2
The reason Harish and his friends are doing this Sumatra Trek is to highlight the plight and fight for orangutan survival everywhere. Their greatest threat is man and the loss of their habitat. We share their planet and approx. 97% of their DNA but with the palm oil industry smashing through the rainforest, it could be the first great ape species to become extinct.
Go ape at these facts. Get involved. Get up and act for positive change. For more information on how you can get involved, visit http://www.orangutan.org.uk TODAY! Tomorrow may be too late.
