#InspirationMonday: Make Humanity Great Again

Today’s #InspirationMonday is all about the #MakeHumanityGreatAgain charity appeal because we’re still in awe of everything Eddie Izzard achieved in just 31 days.

Each day of January we’d tune in and watch the live stream with massive smiles on our faces because the pure show of determination has been incredibly inspiring. 

Not sure what we’re on about? For the last 31 days Eddie Izzard has been running 31 marathons in 31 virtual countries followed by 31 comedy gigs. You might be thinking, “Why would anyone do that?” Well, she did it all to raise money for charity to help #MakeHumanityGreatAgain.

The whole thing was live streamed and there were countless celebrity guest appearances to keep her company, including George Clooney, David Walliams, Joe Wicks, Brian Cox and so many more. Our CEO, Rob Love, even joined in the fun for an interview

Now, I don’t know about you, but even the thought of one marathon makes my legs ache so 31 is just jaw dropping. 

The project is still open for donations – so far Eddie has raised over £279,850 from over 4970 supporters.

Well done, Eddie!
