The idea of this page is to raise money for the BBC's Charity 'Children in Need'. The charity does fantastic work for many children in the UK and worldwide (http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/).
My idea is for people associated with UK Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to donate all raised funds through one site so we can show the collective total of UK MMA together. Please also tell friends, fans and family of Martial Arts or just anyone donating to Children in Need to donate through this link. If everyone on my facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/tomkongwatson 7,858 people) donates ten pounds we would raise a staggering £78,580!!!
Over recent months MMA has received much negative press, some warranted and some not. I would like this fundraising page to demonstrate how members of the UK Martial arts community help Children daily throughout the UK, The classes at the gym's we train/teach at year round help change many young lifes for the better. I feel strongly that the Media needs to recognise MMA is a fantastic sport in the UK not this perpetuated street brawlin', child-fighting furore we have been labelled repeatedly as. I hope we can turn the tide on the current media portayal and public perception and give many young people a better chance at the same time.
Any fundraising activities qualify just give this link as your donation base and hopefully on Friday 18th November we can give a huge check to Children in Need on the BBC from UK MMA!
