I was pleasantly surprised to read all about the Amazu's (Sir Og, Lady Joy, their daughters) and the Challenge they had set for themselves. They arrived at the North Pole two days ago on April 13 2015 and completed a back-to-back sky dive and scuba dive. I could not help but be amazed at their their feat. Not only did they get out of their comfort zone, their kids also shared this great feat with them. They have planted the Nigerian flag firmly on the North Pole raising awareness for projects they are undertaking through their Challenge 100 project.

What is Challenge 100? Sir Og and Lady Joy are undertaking 100 projects that will change lives forever through their Amazu Family Foundation and Challenge 100.

|Proof - the picture says it all!|
My research showed that during the summer months of June, July and August, the temperature is on average about 0 degrees centigrade which is still extremely cold for those from the temperate regions. During the winter months, the temperature could range from -23 degrees to -43 degrees centigrade. A killer for those from the temperate regions. The ideal temperature for your freezer at home is -18 degrees centigrade so go figure the cold the Amazu's had to deal with.

Sir Og Amazu and his wife Joy Amazu aim to fund 100 projects in Nigeria, Britain, Africa through their Charity - The Amazu Family Foundation. Their trip to the North Pole is to create awareness for these projects and also raise the required funds needed to bring them to fruition. So far, they have committed to 8 projects which include:
- Hello Hubs which builds solar powered internet kioks for communities in Africa;
- Supporting Sir Ralph Fiennes and Marie Curie Cancer;
- Supporting Gift Augustine in her campaign against Breast Ironing;
- Project Pencil - which collects surplus school supplies from schools and gets them to children in Africa;
- Providing a Water Treatment and Bottling Plant for a hospice for the mentally challenged in Nigeria;
- Scholarships for underprivileged children;
- Supporting Shackleton 100; and
- Supporting Nnewi Hospice for the Mentally Challenged.
So please, don't just be in awe of the Amazu's, like me, dig deep into your pockets and support them by either donating to Challenge 100 or each individual project.
