I have been trying to raise money this year for British Dyslexia Association on JustGiving. I started on 28th of February 2015 so I have just over a month to go until I switch to a new charity for 2016.
I set a very high target which I have no way in hell of reaching now. My month of #blogging4charity really didn’t go as well as I had hoped. However, I have raised £186.00 to date and would really love to smash past £200.00.
Over the next month, I am going to try my best to write some blogs to inspire you all to part with £1 or more to help me to reach my new target of £200.00!
You can donate by going to my JustGiving Page here: https://www.justgiving.com/Blog4Char2015/
Thanks folks for your generosity!
I don’t normally write blogs like this. I have been sat watching the news this evening at the absolute devastation caused by the flooding in Cumbria, England. I know there are other areas of the UK who have been affected by Storm Desmond, but Cumbria have been hit really bad.
I can’t imagine how heartbreaking it must be to have your home ruined by flood water. Many of the home owners have no insurance because the premiums are too high after previous flooding in the region. They have said that the last floods they had were record-breaking, but the floods of the last few days appear to have been even worse.
It’s approaching the holiday season where most people think of giving to others either gifts or money to charities. I have already donated what I can afford to the Cumbria Flood Appeal through JustGiving. I would love my readers to consider donating too. I think any spare £1 you might have would go a long way to help those who have been so badly affected.

I have always been a tomboy. I hated dolls and loved my farm with its little tractor. Although I loved my Care Bears and My Little Ponies, I loved watching Thundercats, He-Man and I wanted Michelangelo the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle action figure for years. I tend to wear minimal make-up if any at all. But there’s one thing I am very girly about. That’s my fingernails.
When I was young, I used to bite my nails when I was nervous. It was a really bad habit and my dad used to constantly tell me that if I didn’t stop biting my nails I’d end up with ‘piggy fingers’. Now, I don’t know what ‘piggy fingers’ are, but it didn’t sound very nice at all. Read the rest of this entry
For those who are unfamiliar with my blog, I thought it would be good to start my month of #blogging4charity with a little bit of an introduction to who I am and why I am challenging myself to a blog per day for a month for charity. Read the rest of this entry
I am trying to raise £1000 this year for the British Dyslexia Association through JustGiving. So far I have raised £0 and now I am about to up my game!
Through March I am going to post one blog per day (oh my goodness) on a variety of topics. Yes, it’s the ‘Me’ part of ‘Dyslexia and Me’ in hope to draw in more readers and hopefully more donations *crosses fingers*
I’m not looking for a large individual donations, even £1/$1 will make a massive difference!
Please support my blogging challenge throughout March and help me get off the ground with my #blogging4charity £1000 target!
After disappointing only managing to raise £15.00 for Dyslexia Scotland in the last quarter, I have decided to raise money over the whole of 2015 for British Dyslexia Association.
My target is to reach £1,000 over the year!
If there is anything you would like to see me do on the blog this year that will tempt you into donating to the cause, please leave your suggestions below!
You can donate via https://www.justgiving.com/Blog4Char2015
You can donate as little as £1 to the cause!
After backing Dyslexia Action for the last quarter, I am now switching the charity! Thanks to your help, I have managed to reach a whopping £103.98 for Dyslexia Action! £100 could help towards the cost of keeping a local centre open for one day! Read the rest of this entry
After three months of raising money for Dyslexia Action through the blog, today is the final day before I switch to my next dyslexia charity. You can sponsor me for as little as £1 to the cause and help make a huge difference to a very deserving charity!
Thank you to all of you who have donated in the last quarter. I am truly humbled how much you’ve all donated and by how charitable my readers are!
