There are so many charities out there doing everything they can to help others, and here’s a few stories from the bloggers that are advocating them.
Baby Loss Awarness Week – There’s no words that can describe the loss of a baby. Julz from The Red Head Diaries decided to do something about her loss and turning this energy into helping others. This event sees her fundraising with the help of other Mums, and family, hosted coffee mornings, table top sale and a very successful Barn Dance, which raised over £1700 for Little Daffodils Charity. The awareness has grown and had recently been collecting a cheque from the Mayor. Plus they are now included in the town’s community fund, where they will be using the session for study and awareness for the town’s professionals.
Choctober – Hands up, who here loves chocolate too much! Me! Well, Laura from Autumns Mummy Blog has a better way to reduce your intake of those delicious chocolate for one whole month and making a difference at the same time! She’s been asking people to sponsor her to give up chocolate for Maternity Worldwide to help mothers in Africa give birth to their babies safely. Surely, this is worth giving up chocolate for!
Snowdog spotting – Over in Cardiff Cardiff City Centre, we see Cathryn from Cardiff Mummy Says and her boy trailing to find some “Snowdog”. The Snowdogs trail opens from 16 September – 26 November and aims to help raise money for Tŷ Hafan, the children’s hospice of Wales, in Sully. Each dog has a code on it to enter into The Snowdogs: Tails in Wales app and unlock each pup. They’ve managed to spot 12 within 1.5 hours and are on the mission to find more! If you are around in Cardiff – why not have a go and see if you can beat Cathryn and her boy’s record?
#DressedByTheKids Day – I love Jade’s vlog from Mummies Waiting. Her Oxfam’s #DressedByTheKids Day is such a sweet little video, showing her little girl dressing her up from choosing the clothes, make-up, hair, shoes and everything else for a day. What a great concept and what an experience for the kid to be THE BOSS for a day!
Operation Christmas Child – Yep! Christmas is just around the corner and most of us are already stocking up presents, but what about those that don’t have the privilege and financial means to meet that Christmas spirt promises. Emma from Our Fairy Tale Adventure tells us about the Samaritans Purse ‘Operation Christmas Child’ shoebox campaign. Emma illustrates some ideas and found suitable items for her chosen categories to fill up the shoeboxes with. This is such a great project to get kids involved that teaches empathy and sensibility. The final drop off day of this year is 18 Nov. Hurry if you want get involved!
