Friends, Romans, Countrymen! Lend me your ears...

Emil are running in the 2019 Royal Run (Copenhagen) - a 10K run through our beloved city! Well that covers the run part... but what about the royal bit I hear you ask? I'll tell you - His Royal Highness The Crown Prince of Denmark will be running shoulder to sweaty shoulder with us common folk! Exciting stuff! :D (Read more about the event here, I've posted the English version for all of you back in ye old land of Brexit - https://www.royalrun.dk/about-the-event)

We have decided to raise some money for a good cause to further motivate our couch potato selves. Therefore we are asking for donations to 'Red Orangutangen'/'Save the Orangutang'. If you know me at all you know I'm an animal lover and like to harp on about saving the rainforest so this is a cause very close to my heart. I was lucky enough to get up close to one of these beautiful creatures, a lovely old boy called Rajang (RIP) when I took part in a zookeeper experience at Colchester Zoo a few years ago. They are truly wonderful beings and it breaks my heart that they are now heading towards extinction thanks to the actions of mankind. So we are going to try to raise a little money to help!

Please have a gander here to see what these excellent Orang-saving angels are up to:

Why should you give us some of your hard earned cash?

Go look at a photo of a baby orangutang. Kinda resembles your favourite furby/your sibling's baby no? Check out a video of one cuddling his or her mamma. Or if you're really brave, watch the poor things attempt to protect their home when men come with diggers to destroy it.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my wall of text, and THANK YOU X 1000 if you are able to donate to us - any donation big or small is truly appreciated. Warm and fuzzy feelings to you all!

If everyone of our facebook friends donated just £1 or 10kr we would smash our target easily! AND WE WANT TO SMASH IT TO BITS! We would love to raise as much money as we can so dig deep and earn some lovely orangutang karma :D

We'll keep you updated on our journey up to the Royal Run 2019! :D

Love from Lucy, Emil, baby Freja and Molly the pug*

*Molly would like it to be known that she will not be participating in a 10K run. She is considering a sponsored silence or hunger strike instead :P
