Well, with all the excitement this week of receiving the gorgeous, magical Jimmy Page book, how fortunate that it’s time to make my first contribution to the December 10th Fund! With all this happiness in my life, adding to it by giving feels great!
I said that even emptying your wallet of spare change would make a difference, so that’s what I am doing. Let’s see – at the end of this week, I have the princely sum of £4.51 to go in. It doesn’t sound like a lot, and it’s not a big sacrifice for me to give it, but even this amount can do some real good. A quick Google search reveals I could sponsor a Guide Dogs for the Blind puppy for a month. Did you realise the expenses of a guide dog are £48,500 from birth to retirement?! Wow. I don’t have that much, but I do have £4.33 a month. Médecins Sans Frontières says that 33p a day provides an emergency dressing kit containing sterile equipment, dressings and bandages to help people affected by conflict in a country like Somalia. Just £3 a month will allow people to see again by providing cataract surgery. See how much can be done with so little? It’s fabulous!!
I can’t wait to see who I am able to help in honour of Jimmy! I said we should spread our joy, so I am taking my own advice. What a fun adventure, and I am supporting the Outside Edge with my monthly giving to Fanfare as well. 2011 is going to be amazing!
