Charity: Worthy causes to support in 2020

BritMum’s charity expert Eva Katona shines a spotlight on a rare affliction known as anosmia and applauds a big brand for being socially responsible in this month’s charity round-up.

Happy New Year to everyone! Now you’re back to the reality of January, school runs, family routine and planning for the year ahead, I’m also back with a few inspirational blog posts to read and charities to support. I hope you enjoy this little collection of posts and find some inspiration.

Imagine losing your sense of smell

First, I have a very interesting post about the rare experience of one’s losing their sense of smell. Kate, from Kate On Thin Ice interviews someone who experienced this at first hand. It’s a terrible condition. Total loss of smell is called anosmia. It also leads to the loss of joy in food and sometimes people who suffer from this condition also develop other issues. But fortunately there’s a charity to help sufferers called Abscent.

Supporting Alder Hey Children’s Charity

Alder Hey Children’s Hospital cares for over 330,000 children, young people and their families every year. It is one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals. In her latest post Emma explains why this charity organisation is important to her and how you can support them.

Skydiving challenge

I also found Shel’s at The Willow Tree’s post about her sister doing a skydive in memory of her son Jamie who passed away in 2004 to raise a money for Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice very moving. Such a huge personal challenge!

Sennheiser get socially responsible

And lastly it’s always good to read about big brands getting their social responsibility right and helping others whilst also raising awareness. More should follow! I came across this post from Where Roots And Wings Entwine, about speaker and headphones manufacturer Sennheiser who began a project before Christmas to give back to its gaming community and donated  1,500 headsets, worth 148,000, to 7 global charities.
