Iâ€™ve always wanted to jump out of a plane, just one of my many things on my â€˜must do listâ€™. When I heard about the jump for charity I couldnâ€™t think of a better reason to do soâ€¦My jump is in aid of the blind, which has a very close link to one of our services; Web accessibility. By putting it out on the Blogsphere Iâ€™m hoping to raise the sponsorship I need to pay for the jump.
All the proceeds from the 11,000 foot Skydive go to the National Council of the Blind of Ireland. At least â‚¬600 (Â£406 / $800) needs to be raised before I get my hands on a parachute. Everything above that is a much appreciated bonus for a very worthy charity.
Thanks for the help! Iâ€™ll make sure the photos get posted if I make it back in one piece. (Paul Walsh says – “I’ll post more photos if his shoot doesn’t open).
For anyone interested in jumping themselves visit the charity jumps Web site for all the information and to register.
