Give up your birthday? A few Team Tearfunders tell us why they did it.

Grace, 18

I wanted to make a difference with what I had, and my birthday was the perfect chance to get all my friends and family on board.

Norma, 80

My grandchildren think I’m getting too old. So I thought I’d have a go and show them what I can do.

Matt, 40

My 40 challenges for 40 was inspired by seeing the things other Tearfund supporters were up to. I wanted to combine celebration with challenge!
