WEEKS FIFTY - FIFTY-TWO: December 13 - Christmas Post - Final Post

This is my final post on this blog.
The year is almost over....already!!

I have decided not to do it again next year.
My $5 each week was coming from NOT buying magazines and with a royal wedding imminent, I'll need to buy magazines again next year!
And I plan to give in other ways.
This blog was a way for me to give to a variety of charities, while at the same time, raising awareness and possibly encouraging others to donate as well.
It didn't quite have the impact I was hoping for, but I hope it did some good.

There are 3 weeks left so I'm putting them together for a triple Christmas donation to a very special cause.

The charity I have chosen to give $15 to for my final post is

Anyone with kids, and those without, must feel for any child (and their familiy) who has to spend Christmas in hospital. This is a charity I love to donate to at Christmas time.  They have a variety of ways you can give...

You can give to the B105 Appeal (which is officially over but you can still donate)
You can give to the Regional Radio Appeal
You can give to the Kids Christmas Appeal
or you can sponsor a bauble

As we live in a regional area, I'm giving to the Regional Radio Appeal.

Please join me.

Thanks to those who followed this journey for the year.

WEEK FORTY-FIVE - FORTY-EIGHT 8th - 29th November

Tomorrow I'm very excited to be going to a Girls Night In.
It's going to be fun and it will raise funds to help fight women's cancer.
As this is a real life event that I'm actually attending and it's for such a great cause, I'm spending 4 weeks worth of donations.
Thanks Janita (the busiest person I know) for hosting it!!

If you would like to help Janita hit her target of $400, please click here to donate too.

WEEK FORTY-FOUR 1st November

Some of the cool tweeps over on Twitter have come up with a brilliant idea.
Melbourne Cup Day stweep!
Bern Morley is organizing the fabulous event.

I'm donating $5 to Young Care.

Right now, there are over 6,500 young Australians with high care needs living in aged care - simply because there are very limited alternatives. (The Senate Community Affairs Reference Committee 2005)
