If you have enough to eat, and a safe place to sleep, and nobody wants to kill you or take you from your family, you are among the most fortunate few of a troubled world, and you should never forget your sheer luck.
I read this in August 2010 and in response have decided to donate 10% of my not enormous income (I am working as a consultant for my former law firm, averaging about 12 hours a month, which is great for fitting in childcare, but not so great for earning pots of cash) to charity every month.  Each month I am going to blog about the charity, and each month I will link back to it here.

If you click on the month below you will get the post I wrote, and if you click on the charity name you will be taken to the charity's donation page.

I'm not asking anyone to do anything, but I am hoping that any publicity these amazing organisations can get is good publicity.

  1. What a fantastic idea! I think it is so important to raise awareness of just how many poor innocent kids are dying each day. I honestly believe that if more people knew that 21,000 children under the age of 5 die each and everyday from preventable causes, then more would be done to help stop this from happening. Well done you for what you are doing! xxx


I know. I'm sorry. I hate these word recognition, are you a robot, guff things too, but having just got rid of a large number of ungrammatical and poorly spelt adverts for all sorts of things I don't want, and especially don't want on my blog, I'm hoping that this will mean that only lovely people, of the actually a person variety, will comment.

So please do. Comments are great...
