Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ST JAMES'S, England - Jun 09, 2016 - London, ENGLAND:- The 2nd eldest child of Britain’s brainiest family will set a world record by documenting the longest ever philanthropic event on Snapchat to celebrating Queen’s 90th birthday. Christiana Imafidon, who has been raising money for charity from the age of 6, passed GCSE at 9 and became the youngest to embark on undergraduate studies in the UK aged 11, will become the first person ever to document the experience of raising money for charity on Snapchat by drinking water for 90 days to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday on June 11th.
The former child prodigy turned philanthropist announced via her Twitter Page ‘I’m going to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday by drinking water for 90 days to raise money for RNLI and ICANcharity! #90daysH2Only.’ Imafidon’s idea came from raising money last year for the Royal National Lifeboats Institute (RNLI) drinking water only for 10 days as part of their ‘H2Only Challenge’ marking her first solo philanthropic effort.
Christiana revealed via her official Twitter page (@TianaImafidon) stating ‘On Saturday 11th June I’ll only be drinking water with meals for 90 days and filming it on @Snapchat. I’ll keep you posted! #90daysH2Only’ She will embark on the 90-Day challenge to raise money for the RNLI and ICAN (Invalid Children’s Aid Nationwide) because of undergoing speech therapy as a child, aged 8.
She will repeat this feat, which will be documented on Snapshat (at Christianah2only), in honour of HM the Queen by drinking water for 90 days to celebrate each year of the monarch’s life. Christiana who lost 6 stone in 18 months last year will start the 90-Day Water Challenge on the Queen’s official birthday on Saturday 11th June. She will embark on the first ever fundraising marathon of its kind for 90 days ending on Sunday 3rd September.
