"Although I speak from my own experience, I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments for yourself. If you find that it is off no use, then you can discard it." Dalai Lama...

Most excellent news :-)

A blog post with some FABULOUS NEWS!! 


We are so amazed at the generosity shown by people! 
Total funds raised now stands at £280.00 with £ 79.00 pledged and more to come tomorrow...

There is going to be an online auction - got to plan a date for that and ask for a few more donations...

We have the opportunity to do a bag pack at Morrisons but need at least 15 people to help out in shifts. Trying to get that many people together on one day isn't that easy...
I have ideas for ways to do it but as yet not had time to put them into practice. 
It seems on average people have made between £300 and £400. 

It would be great if we could do two... One before she shaves her hair and one after...

I have had many ideas for the actual hair shaving event on the 12.12.12. So far non of the ideas have panned out as the people I have asked are unable to help for one reason or another. I have a very active imagination and some of the ideas would work but would require far more energy than I have to give. I have to keep the whole event within my limits whilst ensuring I don't give half measures - if that makes sense? Alan and I are fully committed to helping Milly raise the funds and make as much money as is possible for the two charities. I would hate to get to the end and wish I had done more or dreamed bigger....

There is going to be an *act* of some kind. Preferably Xmas related - we are hoping for a choir/group to perform. Milly and I are going to go round and ask local businesses for raffle prizes on the night and we aim to have some kind of food and drink to be sold...  
Good job we have a good few months to get it all sorted! 

This fundraising malarky is far from easy but days like today make it so worthwhile.
