Is It Really Thursday Already?


Thirteen Things about Louise


Thirteen charities/causes I support. Let me know about your favourite causes, we can probably all learn something today.

1 Born Free Foundation - because animals belong in the wild, not behind bars.
2 Amnesty International - because human rights matter
3 SURF - a charity which helps survivors of the Rwandan genocide
4 RSPB - we must protect and understand the wildlife around us
5 NO2ID - we don't need ID cards and we shouldn't just accept them being foist upon us
6 National Trust - let's be proud of our heritage
7 Aegis Trust - because genocide is still happening today
8 The Conservative Party - for the most part
9 Crusaid - helping people with AIDS at home and abroad (I will do the walk for life next year)
10 MS Scotland - am actually not involved very much, but my mum and dad both are
11 RTCW - helping children with life-threatening illness fulfil their dearest wishes
12 Radio Lollipop - providing entertainment for children in hospital
13 Holocaust Memorial Day Trust - if we are to stop atrocities happening in the future, we must learn from the past

All very good causes!

I'm a pretty devote supporter of Children's Miracle Network. My oldest was 8 weeks premature so I can truly appreciate the work they are doing to save preemies.

Have a great day!
