Collection tins, text giving, and signing up to more events – including living below the poverty line for 5 days in April/May. The mission continues!
- Monday 18 March – Dropped spare change into a Red Nose Day tin.
- Tuesday 19 March – Purchased a deal through Living Social’s site. When buying it, there was message to say that for every voucher purchased, Living Social would donate £1 to Comic Relief. Well, that was nice and easy!
- Wednesday 20 March – Worked with Marie Curie committee to craft a thank you to all the volunteers who took part in the collections. The final total of the Marie Curie committee organised collections was £1423.71, which will go towards over 71 hours of nursing to terminally ill patients in the Devon area.
- Thursday 21 March – Inspired by the perspective I got from completing the YMCA Sleep Easy event (see week 6 feature), I signed up to Below the Line – a challenge encouraging people to live on £1 a day for 5 days.
- Friday 22 March – Signed Oxfam’s ‘Behind the Brands’ petition. Check out this Scorecard that Oxfam have created to show how big name brands score on big policy issues, from water to women – have a look and see how your favourite brands do.
- Saturday 23 March – Donation to Plan via text, after seeing a poster advert on the train.
- Sunday 24 March – Signed up to Big Beach Clean event, a joint venture between the Marine Conservation Society and M&S.
Do Me A Favour Friday #dmaff
I have decided to do something slightly different and turn this feature into favour asking.
I would just love it if you would shimmy on over to my shiny new My Charity Case Facebook page, hit like, and then cast your vote for if I should tippy toe across hot coals for the Children’s Hospice South West Firewalk challenge. I’d also love any hints and tips for cheap and cheerful recipes to survive on £1 a day next week.
Happy Friday folks!
