Dyslexia Awareness Month: Charity

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!


Target smashed!!!

Target smashed!!!

Oh my goodness! A huge thank you to all those who’ve sponsored me and manage to smash the second target of £100! I really didn’t think I would manage it, so I really cannot thank you all enough!!!

I will be switching to a new charity on 12th of October, so you can still donate money until then to Dyslexia Action via my JustGiving page here: or text DYME51 £1 (or £2, £5 etc) to 70070 to sponsor me today. Texts are UK only, online donations are worldwide.

One Last Push!

I’ve had a JustGiving link on the right hand column of my page for almost 3 months now. I’ve been trying very hard to raise money for Dyslexia Action for this quarter before I move onto another dyslexia charity. So far I have managed to raise £80, which smashed my original target! I am very happy with that, I really didn’t think I would raise more than £20 over the 3 months.

A few weeks back I did a whole week of #blogging4charity to try to raise a few pounds more. Alas, I only received one donation of £1 towards the cause. To say I am disappointed would be an understatement.

In a last-ditch attempt to reach my target of £100 I am asking you, my lovely readers, to suggest ideas of what I can do on the blog to raise that final £20! Obviously these ideas have to be clean and family friendly. I will be switching to the next charity on the 12th of October, so there is just over 2 weeks to go!

Thanks to all of you who have already donated and I look forward to hearing your suggestions!

A Massive ‘THANK YOU!!!’ to the Anonymous Donor!

One donation from an anonymous person!

One donation from an anonymous person!

Oh my goodness gracious! I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to the wonderful anonymous donor who donated £50 to Dyslexia Action through my JustGiving sponsorship! I had set a target of £20 thinking it might be a struggle to realistically meet £100 when I am raising money through blogging rather than some crazy activity! I am absolutely humbled by your generosity anonymous donor. Thank you so so much!!!

Donations: JustGiving – Dyslexia Action

I mentioned before that I was going to start donating money to dyslexia charities and changing it around every quarter. I have just set up a ‘JustGiving’ page and for the next 3 months all donations that my lovely readers want to give will be going to Dyslexia Action!

My JustGiving profile can be found in the right hand column, or you can go to:

Thank you very much in advance!

Dyslexic and Loving Words: A film by Vicky Morris

This documentary is just under an hour-long, but it is well worth watching. I actually ended up crying at the end because there were a lot of things that I didn’t realise were associated with dyslexia that I’ve just put down to being my own personal quirks. It’s so nice to hear about other people’s experiences and just how similar they have been to my own journey.
