30-01-12 love charity weekly showcase
Hello all. Can you guess what I might mention this week? One new initiative is taking the blog world by storm and that is the Love All Blogs Grand Love Mental health Blog Hop which will be open for the whole of 2012. After Ruby Wax launched the Black Dog Tribe website our own lovely Annie has taken the bull by the horns and written extensively about her own depression and is really helping people everywhere to know that it is OK to speak out and to be honest. 1 in 4 people are suffering with mental health issues and that makes you and me normal – hurrah! So if you have posted about any mental health issues on your blog do take a few moments to link up as yours may just be the post that strikes a cord with that person teetering on the edge and wondering what path to take. Blogging rocks – it gives us a voice and an opportunity to help.
Same time, same place next week? Yeah I’ll be here. See you then. Mich x

A Mummy Too – Learning about charity with Action Aid
Last week I attended an Action Aid UK bloggers event. In case you don’t already know ActionAid is one of the UK’s largest international development charities, helping poor children, families and communities in over 40 of the world’s poorest countries – amounting to over 13 million people.
So why did I attend? Well mainly I wanted to find out how I could use this blog to help support the work they do, but also I wanted insight into how I can educate Joel (4) about charity and its importance.

Kate On Thin Ice – I Am Looking For 90 Bloggers To Blog For Breast Cancer Charity
Are you a blogger who would like to make a difference?
Did you know that around 1000 women die from breast cancer every month? One in eight women will develop breast cancer at sometime in their lifetime. It is important to note that men also get breast cancer. The good news is that more people are surviving breast cancer due to greater awareness, improved treatments and better screening.
In my new role with Britmums, I have become aware of a Breakthrough Breast Cancer fundraising initiative. If I am to encourage other bloggers to blog about good causes
Tales of The March Hare – No Photos Today.
Last night, because it’s christmas, I bravely ventured out to a Charity Carol Concert , which not only meant I might have to do some singing but it also meant I had committed to staying awake until at least 8:30pm which seems virtually impossible these days. It also meant, although I wasn’t aware at the time, that I would have a total ball ache getting home back East. Chelsea is so posh they don’t seem to have any facilities for Public Transportation.
A Hell Of A Woman – A good cause
Anyway, Kate is looking for 90 bloggers to write about an important woman in their life in 90 words and to link up their posts using the linky code on her post here. The post can be about any woman that matters to you – a grandmother, a mum, a daughter, a friend, a blogger, a boss, whoever you wish.
So why 90 words? This is because there are 90 numbers in a game of bingo. And why is this relevant? Well, Pink Ribbon Bingo have pledged to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer all year round…
