I decided this week that I needed some new ideas for the blog. Anyone who has read my prattle before will know my aim, I blog to get you all to donate to kid’s charities and then write to me about the charity, donation and what you wanted to be when you were 8.

I worried that I was becoming rather stale so I asked for some blogpost suggestions from the delicious world that is Twitter. I was delighted to get suggestions back and they were all respectable too! I thank my tweet-lovelies for this as they could have been ‘interesting’…..

So, I now have a list of suggestions to work through over the next few days as well as an invitation to be a guest blogger. So, please watch this space…..

I will add a message to Twitter, thank you! You will not get this from me too often:)

As always I will close with my normal request to you:-

  • Donate to a valid children’s charity of your choice. It is easy to do – online, collection boxes, Give as You Earn. Any amount is important and I am delighted for one pound, dollar, euro, yen to reach a charity.
  • Visit this blog and comment anywhere with the charity, amount including currency and please also tell me what you wanted to be when you were 8. I love the stories of childish ambitions:-)

I will then:-

  • Add your donation to the Totals page on this blog, totals are updated weekly.
  • I will also write some words about the current donations and the charity
  • All comments will be stored on the comments page so that you can see what charities people are interested in and also what a variety of 8 year old ambitions we have already. I am looking forward to way more surprises from you all.

The steps are simple. Again, if you like the idea please tell others so that they will come and tell me their stories.

Take care of you and yours.
