Make a difference, if you can.

Good evening friends,

Well. Isn’t this something else?

You’ve already guessed what this post is about.

Kittens!

Oh if only. It would fill me with such joy to wrote about kittens. But no, we’re not there yet.

But hopefully for a split second you had a warmer thought rather than Corona Virus!

Living in the UK at this time, all we can do is wait. Nothing has really happened yet. Nothing has been put in place? A few chains of cinemas and leisure centres have closed, schools will shut on Friday, and a few supermarkets have reduced hours. But for now, all is running the same…. but weirder.

Any who. My real reason for this blog is to talk about giving back.

I know it seems like a scary time at the moment, and that the shelves are emptying from people panic buying and stock piling.

Please rememeber those who may not have the money to buy what they need at a drop of a hat, and that many still rely on food banks.

Not only food, but basic every day toiletries like toothpaste, shower gel, deodorant.

Even an extra 2 or 3 quid to your shop could help others massively in need.

I spent £8.40 in Lidl, to buy a few bits to donate to the Isle of Wight Food bank, it might not look like alot or very exciting, but it’ll still help someone in need.

Blogmas Day 18 – The food bank

Good afternoon friends,

This blogmas post is short, fast but important.

This year, I’m sending out a friendly reminder that Christmas is about love, giving, sharing, and making memories. Well, that’s what it means to me.

For some this season is all about decorations, a tree, presents and masses of holiday food, and if you do or dont decide to celebrate christmas that way, then each to their own, what ever makes you happy.

A christmas dinner I feel, is important its just one meal, with maybe a few treats around it.

This year, the same as last, I’ve been donating to the local food bank.

Buying the trimmings and sweets for Christmas day can really add up, and not everyone is as fortunate to afford it.

A few items whilst shopping, with the intention of donating the few pounds worth to the food bank could make the world of difference to a family for that one special day.

I understand that food banks recieve more at christmas, and then less through out the year, but surely they could, if needs be, put goods by for next month?

From next month, I’m going tintry to rememeber to buy £5 worth of food for the food bank each month. It might not seem like alot, but £60 a year could really make a difference.

Blogmas day 13 – Christmas Jumper Day

Good morning friends,

I’m playing catch up this morning, so get ready for 3 Blogmas posts.

Friday was Christmas Jumper Day.

Man my office looked awesome! Such a variety of Jumpers this year, I think next year I’ll have to find a sonic the hedgehog one.

Each member of staff paid £2 (minimum) to wear a christmas jumper. Money raised on Friday 13th will be donated to the charity ‘Save the Children’

You can take part at school, work, or with family and friends.

If you dont have a jumper you are encourage to borrow a friends, or decorate your own jumper. There’s no need to spend out unnecessarily, it’s for charity, not for your appearance.

This year I rocked an ice skating reindeer. I’ve collected a few over the years but all the jumpers are inexpensive and I’ll rotate between them each year.

Did you take part in Christmas Jumoer day this year?
