Normally on a Friday Mum’s The Blog becomes a hive of activity when we run our Freebie Friday giveaways. But as today is Children in Need we decided to swap Freebie Friday for Feelgood Friday and invite you to make a donation to Pudsey and in doing so to feel good about doing your bit for charity.
If you do, you won’t be entered into any prize draw to win anything – you will just have the pleasure of knowing that “as the purse is emptied the heart is filled.” (Victor Hugo)
Children in Need’s mission is to make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK. Their vision is a society where each and every child and young person is supported to realise their potential.
Last year the BBC Children in Need Appeal raised over £39 million which will be used to support projects across the UK. They provide this support in the form of grants to organisations working with children who may have experienced mental, physical or sensory disabilities; behavioural or psychological disorders; are living in poverty or situations of deprivation; or suffering through distress, abuse or neglect.
As a parent I simply cannot watch the Children in Need broadcast now without crying and as a mum Children in Need is my one ‘must donate’ charity event of the year. Will you join me?
