I donate to charities or help friends fundraise when I can. I’ve made items for breast cancer fundraisers and cystic fibrosis ones. The groups that are near and dear to my heart, though, are community ones (both local and world community). The food bank. The local shelter network. The urban projects society.Â The Night to Fight fundraiser show I did recently.
May 3rd marks the 3rd year that Chloe and I will walk for the Kid’s Help Phone. She goes with me because it’s a short walk and they spoil their walkers – there’s treats for the kids, music and games and it’s a family speed walk. I go because growing up I had friends who needed it. It seems ironic to do a fundraiser with the devout hope that YOUR child will never need to access the resources you raise funds for. And so we walk.
On the left hand side, right up at the top is a button to Chloe’s pledge page (I’m a little late setting up the electronic version, her paper one is doing fine). If you can sponsor her, it’s greatly appreciated and I promise that it goes towards a cause that does help troubled children. Drop her a note on the ‘message wall’ there even if you can’t chip in this time.
